The kosher Asian restaurant STATION 9 is pretty new in Jerusalem. Located at the Old Train Station, for the past six months or so, Station 9 has mostly received positive reviews. Due to my birthday yesterday, a friend invited me. First we went to the book fair and then to the nearby restaurant. It was our first time at the and we simply wanted to try it out.
When you come early in the evening, you definitely get a free table but in case you show up later, everything may be occupied. The good reputation caused lots of people to come. 🙂
To be honest, we thought that the place may be expensive. It somehow gives such an impression from the outside. Looking at the menu, we were surprised that the food was actually pretty reasonable. Station 9 is fleishig but dishes with vegetables only are available.
Our first course was crispy rice with fresh salmon.
Don’t ask ! It was delicious and we couldn’t stop eating. Only this would have been enough for me. 🙂
Then we got to the main course and I had chosen meat, vegetables and noodles. The food was great but a bit spicy. We needed to drink lots of soda and tub water (served in a bottle) but we were happy with our food. As a dessert we had fruit with a peppermint – like cream.
What can I say ? The food was just perfect and the service was good. Station 9 is still new and clean. If you choose sitting at the counter near the kitchen, you can watch the cooks preparing the food.
We will definitely go again. Also because the place is not overpriced ! The Hechsher is Kasher Mehadrin from the Rabbanut Yerushalayim.
