On the last Tuesday of every month, the restaurant chain Rak Basar (Only Meat) holds what it calls a festival – an all-you-can-eat extravaganza featuring eight kinds of meat. There is certainly a festive atmosphere, with party hats, a drawing for prizes and loud contemporary Israeli rock music. Seating is at long tables, designed to get diners to socialize with new acquaintances.
From the moment you enter the restaurant, there is no doubt about the food that is to come, even though there is no menu. The first thing to catch your eye is a display case of meats waiting to be cooked, followed by a huge flaming grill.
