The popular Cafe Landwer chain is celebrating the spirit of Octoberfest by hosting Novemberfest – a month of celebration of beer and different types of street food in more than 50 of its branches throughout the country, both kosher and non-kosher. The three unique dishes are inspired by various cuisines from around the world.
After sitting down at one of the outside tables at the popular Landwer cafe located on Tel Aviv’s bustling Ibn Gvirol Street, we carefully perused the new Novemberfest menu. A great deal is that a 180ml glass of Goldstar Unfiltered beer is only NIS 9. My dining partner and I began our culinary journey with the real shish kebab (NIS 51) served with pita bread, tahini, fresh tomatoes and grilled eggplant. This was absolutely delicious. The kebabs were perfectly seasoned and tenderized, which gave them great flavor.
Next up was El Taco Del Gringo (NIS 49) with grilled chicken breast, guacamole, tomato salsa and fresh herbs. It was just the right taste of crunchy, marinated flavor. The chicken was amazing. The fat was trimmed off, and the meat was cooked just right so you could taste the moistness and a little bit of a grill flavor.
This was followed by the Beijing style sliders (NIS 51) which consisted of two burgers served in steamed buns with sweet pickled pumpkin and fries.
After a bit of a breather, we decided to satisfy our sweet tooth by ordering chocolate madness (NIS 45) which consisted of rich warm chocolate cake served with chocolate brownie ice cream topped with crunchy bits of Oreo cookies and chocolate sauce. This is a chocolate lover’s delight! Overall, it seems that Cafe Landwer is constantly seeking new ways to satisfy their customers with an ever evolving food menu that continues to surprise.
