It is lauded for its laid back vibes and undeniably delicious cuisine: Middle eastern, with a twist. A blend of Egyptian and Eastern European in style, taste and tunes, dine in the shadow of the Allenby Beit Knesset and soak in the culture of Tel Aviv. With Tel Aviv’s finest selectors playing records on the turntable and Eyal Shani & Shahar Segal (of Salon, Miznon and North Abraxas) on the menu, this is the place to be seen.
