It was really hard for me to start writing about our evening at Den. We had such high expectations before arriving here, but nothing could really prepare us for this mind-blowing, mouth-watering, once in a life time experience.
Michal Ansky’s Shuk Tzafon (North Market) just opened its gates for a run-in period and we had to check it out. The market is located in Ramat Hachayal area of Tel Aviv and is spread across 1600 square meters packed with 15 food stalls and 15 specialty shops. It follows the trend of food courts in recent years, such as Sarona Market and Shuk Namal (Harbor Market). Unlike the latter two, it is aimed towards a different crowd – residents of the surrounding neighborhoods and the hi-tech workers from close-by offices.
If you’re looking for a restaurant with a great view in Tel Aviv, Raphael is probably one of the best. The chef behind the name is Rafi Cohen, which defines the restaurant as Resto-Bistro. Raphael is well known and a stable establishment in the Israeli culinary scene, existing since 2001 which is quite an impressive feat.
It’s time to continue my journey exploring all the Japanese candies and snacks I brought from Japan. In [Part 1] Japanese Snacks Galore I tasted 6 different snacks, all on the scale of unique, weird and surprising (a snack that looks and smells like a dog treat anyone?). Today we’re going to embark on another adventure, tasting no less than 15treats. Here’s hoping that they’re as tasty as they’re weird.
We were looking for a place to have an indulgent lunch on a lazy Friday when a picture from Shulchan (“Table” in Hebrew) popped up in my Facebook feed. After a brief debate (atypical for us, since it usually involves at least a couple of hours) and quick phone call to make sure there’s an available table, we were on our way to Rothschild St.
Last Friday we had the pleasure of visiting Milk Bakery, once again. Milk Bakery is an excellent patisserie located at Jaffa’s Flea Market that never fails to deliver outstanding baking goods. It was founded by Adi Kihan, a patisserie with an impressive track record of working in top notch restaurants and bakeries both in Israel and in France. Read More
Han Manoli is an oriental restaurant situated at Jaffa’s flea market, inside an interesting historical building bearing the same name. While they don’t take reservation on Fridays, we had no problem finding a table for two at around 12:00. When we left, almost 2 hours later, a large group of tourists were turned away at the door because almost all tables were occupied.
