Tucked away in Shuk Tzafon, North Tel Aviv’s adorable indoor market, a Japanese deli is turning the heads of locals.
Simple and without making too much noise, this little deli has been turning out Japanese specialty foods–all made by hand and with exceptional ingredients that can’t be found anywhere else. The star is onigiri (kind of like sushi sandwiches) which are flat triangles of rice enveloped in crisp seaweed–filled with a range of options from Norwegian raw salmon to creamy sweet potato and comforting mushrooms. Another fan favorite is the Taiyaki, a Japanese fish-shaped pancake-battered cake, filled with decadent fillings like Nutella, dark chocolate, or the must-try red bean paste. Also, noodles of all kinds, sushi-making kits, and a plethora of Asian ingredients. Stop in for some cooking inspiration, a chat about Japanese culture or to find something special for your next party.
