Juan in a Million
This new English café gives expats a taste of home and locals access to great British cuisine. Served by a multilingual staff, you can fill up on traditional fish and chips, a hearty English breakfast and Sunday roast (served every day). But those aren’t the only comfort foods to be savoured at Juan in a Million. Owner Idan, born in Israel, has added some unexpected flavours to his menu—shakshuka, schnitzel, eggplant Parmesan and homemade meatballs, which are his personal favourite. He also takes great pride in his coffee, masterly crafting each cup behind the bar he built and installed. He renovated the entire restaurant himself—laying down a new floor, haphazardly painting the chairs in sea greens, light purples and oranges and nailing wooden window frames to the blank white walls—with the help of his brother. “I always wanted to open a small café—not a place to make me rich but to make me happy,” Idan said. “And I want to make people happy, with good food and real customer service.”
