What so unique about Israel is that, while it's considered an Asian country, it's also part of the Mediterranean. And the region mostly consists of European countries so Israel is the type of place that's right smack in the middle of the East and West. With such a location, you just know that the cuisine here is something to look forward to. Taizu, one of the most popular restaurants in Tel Aviv, takes this up a notch. Beyond just serving authentic Israeli food, this place actually fuses both Asian and Mediterranean cuisines. No wonder Time Out has regarded it as one of the best restaurants in the country twice!
If there's one thing Israel excels in the culinary arts, it's seafood! The people here know a thing or two on how to serve fish, shrimp, crabs, and other sea-borne delicacies with so much flavor and zest, you'll want more and more with every bite. At least, that's what you'll probably feel in Yaffo-Tel Aviv. Headed by the prominent Haim Cohen, they make some of the best Israeli seafood dishes in the city. So much so that you might even turn pescetarian after a meal or two in this place. The elegant ambiance also helps set the appropriate mood.

And, of course, the Israeli menu of seafood dishes and vegetable choices are always killer! For your taste buds, that is!
