Creative veggie fare - Edit

We had lunch at Stupps recently during a trip to the Galilee. It is conveniently located near the entrance to Moshav Amirim, a vegetarian village with several other restaurants and a few veggie B&B's. Stupps is the only kosher restaurant in the Moshav.

We were served by Esther, the owner, a former Canadian, who we remembered from our visit to Stupps with our two vegetarian grandchildren a few years ago. We had congenial conversations with her on both occasions.

Stupps is a small restaurant, surrounded by greenery, and the greenery is brought inside with many baskets of plants suspended from the ceiling. It provides a very pleasant atmosphere for dining.

The menu was more creative than one usually finds in an Israeli veggie restaurant. I had pastry triangles, filled with mushrooms and nuts, served with a nice salad. My companion had stir-fried vegetables and noodles served in a pastry shaped like a large seashell. On the menu, there were soups, salads, pastas and other dishes, many suitable for vegans.

Prices were reasonable and service was good. We will definitely return if we are in the area again.

Pros: creative dishes, reasonable prices, godd-sized portions

Dalia's - Edit

The food was extremely expensive and certainly not good value for money. Although the prices on the internet site said 85 shekel, we were informed when we arrived that in fact it was 100 shekel per person. We stayed anyway but since it is a vegetarian meal there is no way that price could be justified.
However, in a restaurant one is prepared to pay for the ambiance etc, but this was sadly lacking. Everything about the place is old-fashioned. The way the food is served from literally putting several courses on the table at once so that half of them are cold by the time you come to them -- to the dishes they are presented in. The greatest disappointment though at the end of the day was the taste. Overcooked cauliflower, and underspiced dips are not culinary treats. There is a serious shortage of restaurants in the area and anyone who opens up a place that is even half-way decent there would invariably do very well since there is no competition.
One last comment, Dalia herself, could do with learning some basic public relations skills. When she asks you if everything is fine -- telling her your problems is not received graciously or with a constructive attitude. The idea of replacing overcooked food with something done freshly was not offered or considered a possibility when suggested. The customer should know her place!

Cons: bad food, overcooked cuisine, discourteous service

mickeythemystic 29 May 2013 - The negative comments about Dalia's Vegetarian Restaurant were posted 5 years ago. Our experience in May of 2013 was much different: we found it to be a great vegetarian restaurant, good prices, and the owner, Dalia, was delightful. The Amirim vegetarian village is an interesting place to visit and Dalia's is a great place to eat.

Stupp's- Great Kosher Vegetarian fare - Edit

Stupps is located in the famed vegetarian community of Moshav Amirim. While there are probably at least 5 or 6 small family restaurants in the moshav, Stupp's is the only 1 that is certified kosher. Situated in a log cabin with a garden outside, it's ideal for a family night out or a quiet evening with a date. The prices are pretty fair and the portions are good. The stuffed mushrooms are a mouth watering appetizer and our favorite is the all in one meal (where you get a tasty tofu stirfry and a nice vege burger all in one). The "tofu in a basket" and ravioli are also exceptional as is just about everything. For dessert I recommend the hot apple pie. Sometimes in Israel it seems the every Vegetarian/dairy restaurant has the same old menu of pastas and salads that taste the same everywhere. Stupps breaks this trend and offers unique creative and delicious options which will leave and vegetarian or meateater extremely satisfied. Call to reserve in advance as they're almost always filled.

Pros: Delicious!, Kosher and healthy, Lovely atmosphere

Cons: Hard to get to
