ABOUT Eucalyptus

Located in the Artist Quarter, in the heart of historic Jerusalem, overlooking the ancient city walls and tower of David is a unique restaurant called Eucalyptus. Owner and Chef Moshe Basson is known for his contribution to the revival of the Biblical kitchen and turning it into a gourmet kitchen and updating ancient flavors.

Chef Moshe Basson learned to cook from his mother, his grandparents and the Arab women in in the neighborhood where he grew up. Eucalyptus opened in 1960 just outside the walls of the old city. Basson celebrated Tu b’Shehvat (the new year of the trees) by planting a small eucalyptus tree in his parents’ front yard which is where the restaurant gets its name. The tree, and the restaurant, continued to grow, and Basson took over the family business nearly 30 years ago. Moshe‘s family's culture and heritage, which dates back by centuries, is a history lesson in it of itself. His passion is seen through his food and it's truly a one of a kind. Moshe has given talks and classes all over the world.

The other unique feature to know about here are the tasting menu options (which is offered every night in 3 different price ranges). Every dish is influenced by the Torah and all the spices and herbs used then. Education, uniqueness, presentation and bold flavors are all components of the experience at Eucalyptus. Highlights from the menu includes the Figs Stuffed with Chicken topped with a sweet and sour tamarind sauce, Red Lentil Stew (bringing us back to the story of Jacob and Esau), Beef Filet prepared with a porcini mushroom sauce, garlic confit, mashed potatoes and roasted butternut squash and the Chubeira Gnocchi made with garlic confit and cherry tomatoes topped with a tomato-lemon cream.

The restaurant has a huge scenic balcony, where you can enjoy the crimson sunsets as they hit the walls of the old city every evening. The combination of cuisine, passion and location presents a wonderful opportunity to enjoy Jerusalem and its special heritage.
