The aptly named Makom Shel Bassar, which means « the meat place », is located in a solid stone building in the very touristy Shabazi Street. You come here for the meat, and while everything that is served before it, as a side or after it is well done, these things are only secondary. This is why we suggest you go straight to the essential by beginning with “butcher’s cut”, a starter consisting of a few pieces of seasoned meat served with homemade chimichurri sauce, which unexpectedly turns out to be quite refreshing. You might have a little extra room for a light carpaccio or a beef tartar. Then focus on the centerpiece of the meal : a delicious cut of meat, seasoned with parsley and aged, cooked properly to retain the juices. Every cut of beef is available and usually served by weight to suit your appetite: sirloin, filet, rib, and all of the cuts with the bone such as the prized Porterhouse Steak.
