An evolved Rothschild 12 with a Japanese twist on food and culture
In contrast to the nuclear Japanese concept that's familiar here in Israel, of sushi-sashimi combinations or a long California roll accompanied by a line of shrimp nigiri and spicy tuna maki, Disco Tokyo is a Japanese diner-bistro promises authentic Japanese food, the kind that Japanese eat. The innovation and interest in flavors comes from special cooking methods and the use of unique flavorings, all of which are the foundations of Disco Tokyo. The place which is located in the recently-minted culinary compound on 16 Herzl Street in Beit Hama'aliya the legendary home of Tel Aviv's first elevator, is part of the R2M group, owned by Ruti and Mati Broudo. The restaurant's design draws inspiration from Japanese aesthetics, combined with industrial motifs. The new location brought with it a real revolution on the menu, together with an upgrade in both the food and the cooking methods. Among other things, that means in-house production of miso sauce, a long and complicated process that takes several weeks, preparation of new pastries every morning, and making dumplings, including pork gyoza, chicken shumai, beef and shrimp won ton and beef dumplings.
