Brisket Meat Bar, Hadera, off Route 4 at the Inbar Hadera Sonol gas station (kosher)
Don’t let this restaurant’s gas-station location put you off. The American-style southern barbecue joint is less than a year old, yet already blowing the socks off American barbecue enthusiasts and native Israelis alike.
Chef Ohad Leizer’s menu puts an emphasis on smoked meats, which are treated with house-made specialty dry rubs and delicious top -secret marinades before being smoked in a special smoker brought in from the US. Ready meats are then served up as sandwiches, or on platters, alongside the requisite coleslaw and other simple accompaniments such as baked potatoes, crispy fries and homemade pickles.
