Germany’s Leipzig has opened a kosher restaurant, Cafe Salomon.

Kosher foods are those that conform to the Jewish dietary regulations called kashruth. Preparing meat, fish and dairy products in same kitchens do not meet the standards of kashruth, the Judaism’s dietary laws.

According to Jakob Kerzhner, the owner of Cafe Salomon, kosher-abiding Jews could only have meals “at home” and opening the restaurant closes such gap.

“We are trying to close a gap in Leipzig,” Gotthard Dittrich, head of the Rahn school in Leipzig, told the Leipziger Volkszeitung (LVZ) newspaper at the restaurant’s opening ceremony on Tuesday.

The restaurant does not serve fowl or beef, because, according to kashruth, milk and many meat products have to be prepared and served separately — too complicated and expensive a process for Cafe Salomon. However, some fish are on the menu, as well as vegetarian and vegan options.

“If we cooked meat in our kitchen, then we wouldn’t be able to serve coffee with milk,” said Kerzhner, who keeps kosher.
