Tel Aviv Food Porn

Tel Aviv is known for many things—technology, business, beaches, a huge Pride parade, and now we are adding another important one to the list – FOOD.

Like its name, Tel (something very old) Aviv (spring, which symbolizes new and rebirth), this busy metropolis brings together old and new in fabulous ways. Below are just a few of my favorites from a week of non-stop eating and sightseeing.

Let’s start with the traditional.

The recipe for hummus dates back centuries. Served alongside fresh handmade pita and with bean topping, it is unbelievable.

KnafehKnafeh, is a traditional Middle Eastern dessert with a sweet cheese filling that is doused in rose or orange blossom syrup…we just couldn’t pass it up.

No matter how far-fetched your foodie adventures take you, you can’t deny the splendor from a delicious, fresh slice of fruit. Even better is when you can enjoy it in the midst of a beautiful landscape.

Kitchen marketAfter some old world traditional dishes we visited Kitchen Market, a restaurant that sits on top of the markets at the port of Tel Aviv. Kitchen Market serves fresh farm to table (and sea to table) dishes in a new world style.

We started off with an incredible lamb tortellini with potato cream, summer vegetables and wine sauce.

This was followed by an egg dish that took the house down. It included soft-boiled egg, porcini cream, brioche croutons and parmesan foam.

Next, a delightful savory crème brûlée with porcini mushrooms, roasted chestnuts, parmesan and prosciutto.

This was followed by a succulent plate of slow roasted lamb.

To top off the sensational savory dishes, we chose a perfectly grilled fillet of veal. This was paired with an onion crisp and accented by dijon mustard.

Of course, no proper feast is complete without some sweetness, so we enjoyed a play on banana’s foster with chocolate crumble dirt.

 And a divine play on flourless chocolate cake mouse.

Tel Aviv offers a medley of cuisine to please every palate and is worthy to be called a foodie’s dream destination.
