Conquering our hunger – HaKovshim

23 Nov

It is so much fun to write about a place we love as HaKovshim, it is even a greater fun to eat there. This week we were invited by Zipi for some quality time. We didn’t want something to heavy or fancy. After going through the list in our heads (soon to be documented in this blog) we knew – HaKovshim.

HaKovshim is an Israeli bistro that bases its courses on the fresh goods from the nearby Carmel market. It’s a simple place with no pretensions. The food is just great, simple and fresh and you can always count on some new and exciting specials from the kitchen (don’t hesitate to take a ceviche if they have one).  The atmosphere is casual but if you come on daytime you can still feel the market vibe coming from the outside.

Burghul Salad

Some courses we recommend include Sardines, Beef Fillet medallions, Shoshka Peppers, Burghul Salad and Beef Filet Medallions with Home-Made Gnocchi. It’s also a good idea to take a few starters to share as we’ve done today. The only course we didn’t like was the “Tal Fridman” breakfast. To sum up, a great place to visit on a hot summer night of Tel Aviv.
