Chef Eyal Shani, the celebrity chef behind HaSalon (“the living room”) has his own straightforward style, one that has shaped contemporary Israeli cuisine. Here, you’ll find the best vegetables and raw materials coming together in a slick, but hip manner. This comes as no surprise as Shani’s reputation has come to include a persona as the King of the cauliflower with his locally-loved Miznon. Besides Miznon, Romano and the extremely hip Port Said, HaSalon is this chef’s playground. It’s only open a couple of nights a week so be sure to plan ahead for this unique dining experience. Come for late night or a dinner with friends and see how every ingredient stands out on its own, then taste exquisite local dishes from a menu that changes daily. Of course Shani keeps some favourites consistent, but each seating is a new adventure. Simply put, HaSalon is the number one place to experience local cuisine at its best.
