Fodor's Expert Review Oasis
Chef Rima Olivera's 30 years of experience in the world's best kitchens and her principles of cooking set this eatery apart from the rest in the Tel Aviv food scene. The menu changes constantly based on the choicest seasonal ingredients, including those that are locally grown and those that are hand-picked from abroad. An open kitchen at this tastefully designed location lets you watch Olivera in action. The natural flavors emanating from each dish have just a hint of butter or cream, if any at all. Taste the gently seasoned zucchini salad with truffle oil for starters. Also recommended is the Vietnamese-style sea bream with shallots, lemongrass, and caramel. Be sure to end the meal with a perfectly balanced dessert and green-tea milk with jasmine cream.
