New Kosher Culinary Center & Restaurant in Jerusalem: Shukriya

A new kosher culinary center, that serves daily breakfast and Friday brunches has opened on King George Street in central Jerusalem.

Shukriya is a culinary culture center that is not only a restaurant, but also a learning and social hub; it regularly hosts cooking workshops, private chef dinners, and events.

The culinary center is the brainchild of chefs that have worked at many Jerusalem restaurants, and who were inspired to create a culinary hub that pulls dishes from old eastern European recipes, Arab recipes of East Jerusalem, and North African cuisine.

Dishes include gravlax brained with beets and arak, served with a Yemenite kubaneh bread, and fire-roasted wild eggplant with Greek scordelia on a Jerusalem bagel.

The desserts are very different and creative as well, such as the pecan banana bread with creme fraiche, and the brioche bread with citrus essence.

Shukriya is a new and creative place to try and get an amazing breakfast in Jerusalem.

Shukriya is located at King George St 37, Jerusalem. It is kosher certified by Tzohar.
