Uri Buri, located in the magnificent ancient city of Akko, in front of the sea and the ramparts, is a traditional place and genuine institution in Israel. It is overseen by a colorful character, Uri Jeremias, a former fisherman and self-taught chef who only puts things he likes to eat on the menu and clearly has no interest in being trendy. The place is pleasant but very simple including white walls and a terrace that really has not been fully taken advantage of. The decor needs a little something to liven it up. The master of the house takes the time to make the rounds of the tables and have a word with all the guests. As the meal unfolds, we enter the universe of the Chef: excellent products, lovely flavor combinations, and perfect balances without any concession to lightness or simplicity . The octopus is served with fakus, or Armenian cucumber and is flavored with arak, the mackerel is paired with wild spinach and delicious saffron rice. For dessert, the kiwi soup with Pernod, basil and pink grapefruit sorbet is fragrant, tart, and ideal to finish on a light, delicate note while discovering the homemade ice cream. You come to Uri Buri for the quality of the products, which are never falsified or over-prepared, and because you can count on a certain consistency. This is a reassuring, comforting, timeless restaurant offering simple, instinctive cuisine, fragrant of the Mediterranean and focused first and foremost on taste.
