Snackable: Milk Bakery, Tel Aviv

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

[Closed] Slow Friday Lunch | Han Manoli, Tel Aviv

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.

Brunch | Claro, Tel Aviv

Claro is hands down one of my favorite restaurants in Tel Aviv. If you were to ask me for a restaurant recommendation, one that fits both casual and celebratory events, Claro would be one of the first names to come up. The restaurant is located in Sarona, close to Ha’arbaa street inside a huge Templar structure. The main hall is spacious and impressive, boasting a large open kitchen and a bright, beautiful design. There are several seating options, each providing the patrons with a different experience. If this is your first time here, I recommend sitting on the bar to catch all the action as it unfolds in the kitchen.

Enrique Olvera & Meir Adoni Back to Back | Catit, Tel Aviv

During November the most popular restaurants from around the world sent their chefs for an entire week to take over the kitchen of some of the most exciting restaurants in Tel Aviv. This big culinary project is called Round Tables. The dinner at Catit was not part of this project. So why am I telling you all of this? Since I was too late to join the party and book a table to the Round Tables project, I missed the places I wanted to visit. The only tables left were in restaurants that less interested me. I was truely disappointed so when I saw chef Meir Adoni of Catit is hosting Enrique Olvera, the chef of the best restaurant in Mexico, I was so thrilled. I felt like this would be the perfect “compensation”.

Brunch | Truck De Luxe, Tel Aviv

Truck De Luxe has been a favorite of mine ever since they opened. The place is actually the second one from the folks behind Pundak De Luxe, which is located in the midst of Jaffa Flea Market. They opened Truck De Luxe right by Dizengoff Square, next to 6 in May restaurant that made aliyah from Jerusalem. First thing you’ll notice about this place is the big truck inside the restaurant. This place is the closest you’ll get to a food truck in Tel Aviv since there’s a municipal by law which prohibits peddling. This is really a shame since I love the food truck culture very much.
