Behind the walls of a sign less abandoned looking warehouse in Tel Aviv is one of the most thrilling fine dining restaurants you’ll ever find the fresh high quality ingredients. The amusing energetic atmosphere and the open kitchen where you can watch every dish carefully prepared from start to finish our Reasons why this restaurant is known to be the best high end dining experience in Israel. Get ready, I’m taking you with me to eat an unforgettable meal at Tel Aviv’s ha salon. We made it to the restaurant look at our seats right in front of a big pile of meat and vegetables. See all of them cooking I love how they just set out all of the fresh produce. There’s even some figs and some cherries Just whole stalks of green onions and just a pile hunks of meat just sitting on the counter top before us. This is a fine dining restaurant, but at the same time it feels like you’re eating in the middle of a market and it’s owned by Al Shani who has he’s a Legend in the food scene in tel-aviv.
He’s a food scientist. He owns a number of restaurants around tel-aviv, but this is his flagship restaurant. It’s only open two days a week and it almost has like a laboratory feel to it. They slice things with expertise Everything is down to a science and the ingredients are the top of the notch. There’s no better quality ingredients for the first bite. They’ve sort of served us some Pepper bread like a focaccia type of bread their tomatoes on and there’s some sage. It’s like perfectly gooey, but then that cream is so silky smooth. Next up we have FIGS carpaccio and he very very thinly and very delicately sliced up big figs laid them onto a plate, And then I think all he topped it was with is some salt some pepper some, and he he actually pounded the pepper so it’s fresh.
He cracked that pepper open, and then there’s olive oil on there, and then some peas some. Parmesan Wow, this is just a beautiful dish It’s just absolutely pretty Well and the figs are just incredibly soft and tender Just that light sprinkle of probably sea salt that cracked black pepper the olive oil kind of brings it together and Then just only enough cheese to barely taste it and give it a little bit of saltiness. There’s just so much going on in the kitchen here. It feels like you’re in a food movie fantasy. The next dish that has come is a crab and they just Meticulously de L bet crab. It’s mixed with just some very light Ingredients I think some very light herbs.
There are some sprouts on there, and then there’s some raspberries to accompany it well I’m gonna try to get a bite with some of the crab, and I want that raspberry as well That crab is just melt-in-your-mouth and then. There’s almost like I think use some of those green onions that are sitting right in front of us but they’re so mild and then that raspberry are just like the purest raspberry. I’ve ever tasted next dish is a Shrimp bagel, but it’s like a superior shrimp bagel. They use crystal shrimp And he peeled the shrimp he just like so delicately so carefully the chef he layered on tomatoes. Thank you He leered on pickles, and then he layered on that shrimp, and then there’s it’s saucy and it’s their own version of a bagel so.
You’re gonna grab this All man Paul you can feel they’re like juiciness in your hands boozing with good flavors Oh, you can feel how soft and supple that is Okay, I can’t wait any longer Well that’s ridiculous the shrimp Is amazing and it’s like a like a creamy sauce and then but I can also taste, and there’s the refreshing dill So I’m just dripping all over the place, but it’s so good Introduction is the gumbo surface of my lemon okay? This kitchen is just so entertaining I’m just actually standing I’m standing I’m not even sitting and I mean I’m just at the edge of my toes watching the chefs work. Though one of the main dishes has come leave it up to duty to reorder the entire rack It’s lamb right yeah, because I know this way may be If we had them order it in the first place It’s already sold out so they only have my curiosity the whole restaurant for a nice so you pre-ordered it definitely sold out now, so before you If I came right out of the wood oven and you could see it that the ribs were actually alive still they were Pulsating it was like there was it was Bert.
