A delicious Jewish restaurant featuring affordable and traditional food
In the grim Israeli culinary reality, a restaurant with 70 years of experience is quite the miracle. Tel Aviv's Sender restaurant, which opened during the year of Israel's establishment, has stuck to tradition for seven decades and continues to serve Kosher Eastern European food to fans of all ages. The cozy spot made its first appearance in Jaffa, then moved to the outskirts of Levinsky market a few years later, where it stands strong to this day. Current owner Zami Schreiber is already second or third generation, depending on how you look at it. His father and grandfather set up the restaurant together in partnership with Chef Sender, and when the founding generation retired Schreiber became the sole owner. As owner, he takes special care to preserve the attractive home cooked menu. Loyal regulars come again and again to taste cholent and kishke, chopped liver, tongue, chicken soup with kreplach and noodles, and egg salads. The ambiance is reminiscent of restaurants from the past, with a large soda tap, photographs of political and cultural figures hanging on the walls, and a family feel that can't be beat.
