About Vaqueiro Kosher Restaurant:
Vaqueiro is a concept restaurant. It's what the brazilians call "Churascaria" - an all you can eat grill. In this Israeli version, we have one of those wonderful "ingathering of exiles" fusion. Here is Stanley Lifshitz, a veteran South African oleh, as our host, serving a Brazilian meat grill, which is mostly South African inspired, with touches of Spain, U.S., U.K., France, and of course, Israel.
Okay - you are in for a real trip! Tighten your seatbelts, but as the dinner progresses you will be loosening them. Did I say this was all you can eat? The idea of a concept restaurant, besides the food, is that it is a show from start to finish. The staff are well trained for this performance, gaucho pants and all. To train, they "shadow" a staff member for four days. There is then a written test with 100 questions. There is even a moed bet (second chance) for those that don't pass first time around.
