New Kosher Restaurant at Jumeirah Creekside Hotel

The Kosher Place, a restaurant that serves kosher cuisine that has been approved, has just opened at the Jumeirah Creekside Hotel. The kitchen of the venue with 200 seats is managed by Shimon Ben Shitrit, an expert chef from Israel. The Emirates Agency for Kosher Certification is responsible for the oversight and certification of The Kosher Place.

On the menu, you’ll find dishes such as Israeli salad, aubergine tempura, and focaccia shawarma. The main courses include sea bream and sea bass, kebab skewers, entrecote steak and lamp chops, and lamb chops. The chocolate souffle, the sorbet trio, and the tarte tatin are the desserts that are offered. The Emirates Agency for Kosher Certification has audited and approved the establishment as a kosher dining establishment.

What exactly is a kosher meal?

The Jewish religion is the origin of the kosher food tradition. To keep kosher, each animal you eat must first be ritually slaughtered, and you are not allowed to consume pork. Shellfish like mussels and oysters, as well as crustaceans like lobster and prawns, are not allowed to be served at this restaurant. Octopus and squid are also not on the menu.

Fish is permitted in a kosher diet; however, the fish in question must have both fins and scales. In addition, a kosher diet permits for the consumption of only mammals that have cloven feet and eat their cud (animals that slowly chew their partly digested food before swallowing).
