The Bright Side of the Moon

Running Sushi

Looking at Tel Aviv’s Sushi scene, there are almost too many options to choose from. Nevertheless, one can categorize these into a few rough categories: The cheap to mid-level priced chains, the upper level places and the high-end expensive sushi. It is very much you-get-what-you-pay-for scene with very few exceptions. Moon, placed in the middle of the eclectic Bugrashov street has one of the most original sushi in Tel Aviv while still not a high-end priced sushi. Foie Gras, Tunna fish mousse, Salmon eggs & melted Gauda cheese are only some original ingredients running on a conveyor between Moon’s customers (4 price-level plates).

Last Saturday, right after the Israeli first season finale of Master-chef, we decided to take our late-night hunger to the Moon. We started off with a good Salmon Tartar (with Seaweeds & Avocado) and a Tuna fish Sashimi. A 3rd level sushi plate (2 pieces of Rainbow sushi) wasn’t the best we had, but the Spicy Salmon Maki (4 pieces) was excellent.

Moon is quite an upbeat place and owns a large bar, in which also a drink-only night will be more than acceptable. Combine it with a semi-late-night kitchen (will serve hot plates until 00:30) and you have one of the best sushi places where no mortgage is needed in Tel Aviv.
