Eduardo’s (Haifa, Israel)

HaAtsmaut 37, Haifa 33033, Israel, T: 0774044175

Eduardo’s might be one of the weirdest places I have ever eaten at. It is in the port district of Haifa, itself not fancy, and even there it stands out for its underwhelming presence. It is so dimly lit that you think it is closed and it has pictures of its food outside that make you think twice about entering. In fact, it is one of the few places in the area that is totally empty around lunchtime. 

Eduardo’s is an Argentinian place – I’m coming with friends, who are regulars, so we never see the menu. It almost feels like they decide what we should eat.

We start with empanadas, which are small but tasty. After that, there is a big sausage (chorizo), which has a good consistency and taste, with potato salad. The pièce de résistance, however, is the humongous schnitzel, which comes covered with fries and fried egg. We had called this order in, as they cannot always make them. The schnitzel is very thin, but remarkably tasty and not that dry – particularly given the size and thinness. The fries are very crispy. While not subtle in any way, shape or form, it is an awesome binge dish!

VERDICT: 88/100

Eduardo’s serves good Argentinian food and the best humongous schnitzel I’ve ever seen. Unbelievable it is so empty, although Eduardo himself doesn’t seem to care.
