I’M GOING TO TEL AVIV, ANY TIPS?
Every year, go some place you’ve never been before. Of course, we often go to the usual suspects, such as London, Paris and New York, and what I’ve seen in those cities in the past year is the enormous amount of cool restaurants inspired by Israel and Tel Aviv in particular. Often the whole team behind those restaurants are from Israel. Think of Yotam Ottolenghi, of Assit Granit, who recently opened a new restaurant together with Tom Dixon in London and of Neni. What started with one restaurant inside the 25Hours Hotel in Berlin has evolved into ten different restaurants throughout Europe.
Of course, we can be happy that those chefs take the Middle-Eastern kitchen and share it with the locals in cities like Amsterdam, Berlin, and London, but it makes me very curious about Tel Aviv itself. By doing my research I came across so many nice restaurants I really want to share them with you. And apart from the food, the interior is really nice too. Just like Cape Town, Barcelona, Sydney and Los Angeles, Tel Aviv has a beach. And architecture lovers can indulge in all Bauhaus influences.
Everything is in walking distance or you can bike there – it seems to be the Amsterdam of the Middle East. When this article is published I’m stepping on the plane to Israel and from tomorrow on I’m going to take you with me on Instagram and Facebook via photos (and videos on Instagram Stories). When I’m back I will share all my favorite discoveries with you!
L’hitraot! (meaning: see you soon!)
