brasserie halevi is an outstanding restaurant. From the moment I walked in I felt I was part of the family. With the warm welcome from the hottest to the waiter and waitress eagerly waiting to take my order to make sure I have an amazing experience. When I went me and my Friedman ordered the lamb lollipops and the tuna tartare, and both dishes were delicious. The tuna was fresh and they did not over season it so I was able to enjoy both the tuna and the seasoning. The lamb was incredible the first part was a fried and was very fresh with a nice crunch. As I moved up the lollipop I had a piece of smoked lamb and that was deliciously I bursting with flavor. After that I had the 2 way duck and I can go in and on how amazing both ducks were. One of them was baked and the other seared and it was the best duck I have ever had. And for desert I had a strawberry short cake and I could not believe that it was pareve it was better than all the dairy strawberry shortcakes I have ever had.

Jerusalem Steakhouse on Ave J is a great restaurant. Between the food and the service you're really getting an experience to enjoy. My favorite side order is always the Israeli salad I enjoy adding in the beets as well to give it a little crunch. I really like their steaks and the baby chicken skewers. No matter what you order your guaranteed a great meal. They make their lafa on site and you can really taste the difference. This time of year make sure to order the yeminite soup for a little warmth and a great deal of flavor. team #kosheryum
Sushi Tokyo is a quaint restaurant on Coney Island Avenue and Avenue J in Brooklyn. I've eaten there on a few occasions and I have also gotten food to go. Instead of a bread basket one is given a bowl of edamame. The eating area is cozy and the staff are friendly. Besides for sushi they also serve an assortment of soups including some traditional Japanese soups like miso soup, which happens to be my favorite. I also enjoyed their vegetable rolls mixed with avocado and crunch. I'm happy that they offer an abundant of rolls with avocado because really enjoy eating avocado. So, of you are looking for a healthy affordable meal, Sushi Tokyo is a good place to go.
