Taizu, Indonesian menu in honor of the tenth anniversary of the restaurant (Taizu)
All the openings (and closings also, I wish we didn't have to), new menus and limited edition dishes, festivals and holidays, special meals and once-a-year events (we wanted to write New Year's Eve, but we realized a long time ago that almost every two weeks there is some kind of "The... International", and in our places that's reason enough for event).
The most outrageous tip, and the "quarrel table" also: Taizu is celebrating a decade. These are her
secrets A chef who is a guest and a chef who hosts as well, a restaurant that dresses up and a staff that changes places, why not, actually. A dish that gets its own roof (and walls), but also a "hole in the wall" is worth enough for us to report. Eilat and Haifa, the Sharon and the Shefela, and Tel Aviv (but by no means only it).
In short, get Israel's food news. And this time - one of the most prestigious (and expensive) restaurants in Israel invites you to a burger and fries. And that's just the first course.
"Look up." Saturday night at Restaurant A

A few weeks after announcing the closure of Restaurant A Saturday night while urging customers to come out and demonstrate, Taizu Group executives are trying to update an operating pattern, "accommodate" the ongoing democratic event, and offer something slightly different – in atmosphere, intentions and food.
"We understood that it would take time until the protest, of which I am one of its supporters, clears the streets," Yuval Ben-Neria explained on his Instagram page, "and we chose to adapt ourselves to the situation."

These are Come As You Are evenings (with a deliberate homage to Nirvana, apparently) that will welcome customers of this upscale restaurant – packed with waiting lists and queues – before or after the demonstration, *without an invitation*.
The special menu, which is defined here as accessible (and indeed should be considered as such in relation to what goes on here on a daily basis), offers small and medium-sized dishes that do not cross the NIS 38 threshold, and a wine list that recently aligned with the "situation" and lowered its prices as well.
You can find here, among others, starters such as fried shishito (66 shekels), beef tartar americana with organic yolk, potato chips, kimchi and tartar sauce (48 shekels), "lettuce 'Cesar' Gotsugoro" (parmesan in miso, caramelized almonds in yuzu, Korean chili, kiopi, yuzu juice, 64-78 shekels), ammachi sashimi (54 shekels), and potomaki roll (4 shekels for 64 units).
For its part, the main section will offer a burger in a bun with American cheese and fries (NIS 98), steak rump with capsicum sauce and thick fries (NIS 88), mussels and fries (NIS 92) and fish fillet (NIS <>).
"Critical moments in our country." Ben Neria (Photo: Assaf Carla)
In recent months, Ben-Neriah made sure to be among the first foodies to express a position on the legal coup and its implications for Israeli society, and did so in the shadow of almost complete silence from colleagues.
"The headlines about racist laws and restrictions that the incoming government seeks to promote are very worrying and disgusting to me," he declared late last year, "We respect the freedom of every person to choose the way that suits him to live his life, and in a civilized and progressive society there is no place for regulations and laws of the kind that we unfortunately hear about."
A few months later, when it became clear that this was only the beginning, he led the group's restaurants (including Taizu) to join the general protest strike, which eventually became redundant with the cancellation of the dismissal of Defense Minister Yoav Galant. "These are critical moments in our country when it is impossible to continue as usual," he explained at the time, "the order of the day has arrived and we are proud to take part in the struggle for the character of the State of Israel."
