After visiting the Man on Galilee Museum where I saw the 2000-year old wooden boat and after experiencing that boat ride on the lake, I was eagerly excited for lunch. Our tour guide told us that our lunch today is something very special because we will have St Peter’s fish. According to him, the same fish is caught from the Sea of Galilee and it’s the same fish that Jesus multiplied in the miracle of the multiplication of bread and fish (needs further verification though). Sounds very exciting right?
Then he asked us if we like it “fillet” or “whole” because he has to advise the restaurant ahead of time. However, he said that its better if we order a whole fish rather than a fillet so we can really see how the fish looks like. So we ordered the whole fish as suggested.
So we where brought to this Lebanese restaurant for that much awaited St. Peter’s fish lunch. The restaurant is beautifully decorated and very spacious. It could easily accommodate 300 persons all at once.
We were served some appetizers and some salads first. This is the usual set up every time we have lunch or dinner – bunch of salads and appetizers are served before the main dish.
After few minutes, we were served our food – St Peter’s fish!
Yes, St Peter’s fish is tilapia. Its scientific name is tilapia Galillea. I enjoyed it of course!
