One does not have to be a vegan to appreciate the food at Meshek Barzilay, a charming vegan restaurant in the heart of the Neve Tzedek neighborhood. What is most appreciated about Meshek Barzilay’s menu is that stays away from imitation. Embracing the eclectic possibilities of vegetables and other vegan ingredients, Meshek’s menu dazzles food lovers without apologizing for the absence of meat.
Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, guests may sit within the restaurant’s indoor dining space, sunlit glass-ensnared patio or garden
Inspired by the ubiquitous convenience of take-out in cities like New York, where owner Merav spent some time traveling with her family, Meshek Barzilay also has a delicatessen on-site, where visitors can stop to pick up healthy, pre-prepared food, shakes, and organic groceries to go, or casually eat at the charming communal table.
Since its beginnings on Moshav Yarkona, Meshek Barzilay’s location, size, and clientele have certainly evolved, but their farm-to-table style, and emphasis on fresh, quality ingredients remains the single most important factor in their delivering an outstanding dining experience to local foodies and visitors in Tel Aviv.
