Kfar Hanokdim offers a large selection of meals: Traditional Bedouin Haflas and Breakfasts.
 


Traditional Bedouin Meals (Haflas)



All Hafla Meals include this special Bedouin Hospitality
Five Traditional Bedouin Haflas are offered at Kfar Hanokdim:
All Haflas share the same abundance and variety of food with the difference of the meat menu served.
Bedouin hosts welcome all guests and invite them to relax and sit on soft colorful sofas next to low tables, laden with delicacies. Alternatively, guests can find high wooden chairs and tables. In the centre of the tables are small oriental bowls filled with colorful salads: spiced Arabic salad, thick tahini, homemade pickles, spicy matbuha, fried eggplant with mint, cabbage and ground pepper.
Alongside the salads there are jugs filled with cool fresh water and mint lemonade.
As guests settle down comfortably, your Bedouin hosts serve big trays laden with homemade pita: thin Fatir (Bedouin pita) and Pourna pita with onion and hyssop.
Soon your hosts come again carrying big Sanias with seasoned Bedouin rice and vegetables together with Stuffed vegetables and sweet corn arranged around it.
And then, from the kitchen come trays laden with succulent meat to your choice:

The heart sees before the eyes and the eyes eat before the mouth

Zarrb

Preparation of the Zarrb Hafla starts the day before the meal when the Bedouin collect stones from the nearby surroundings and build an earth oven. The oven is heated with special wood which has a very pleasant scent and produces a high burning heat. Choice Lamb pieces are laid inside the earth oven and the oven is sealed. Two hours later the oven is opened in front of the guests and the feast begins! The meat melts in the mouth like butter and has a smoked, baked and roasted aroma.
After the Zarrb's lamb meat is out of the earth oven, Bedouin hosts welcome all the guests and invite them to relax and sit on soft colorful sofas next to low tables, laden with delicacies. Alternatively, guests can find high wooden chairs and tables. In the centre of the tables are small oriental bowls filled with colorful salads: spiced Arabic salad, thick tahini, homemade pickles, spicy matbuha, and fried eggplant with mint and cabbage with ground pepper.
Alongside the salads there are jugs filled with cool fresh water and mint lemonade, grapefruit and orange-juice.
As guests settle down comfortably, your Bedouin hosts serve big trays laden with homemade pita: thin Fatir (Bedouin pita) and Pourna pita with onion and hyssop.
Soon your hosts come again with big Sanias with seasoned Bedouin rice and vegetables, together with Stuffed vegetables and sweet corn arranged around it.
And then, from the kitchen come trays laden with meat:
Ribs of lamb garnished with parsley, skewered tender chicken, homemade kebabs and the Zarrb's lamb meat.
All dishes are lavish, in accordance with Bedouin hospitality.
To complete the meal guests are offered spiced Bedouin tea and Turkish coffee, baklava (sweet pastries) and seasonal fruits.
