As you may already understand, eating breakfast in Tel Aviv is one of our favorite Friday morning activities. This time we had chance to visit the vibrant Bazel area, which is full of good cafés. Although the wide selection of breakfast in the area, we were invited by Zipi & Shaul, familiar guests in our blog, to an Italian restaurant named Rustico. This restaurant worth a different post for their regular menu but this post will focus on their breakfast.
The breakfast menu in Rustico includes 4 different sections: Frittata, Rustico Eggs, Scacciatina (hot focaccia sandwich) & Dolce. Each section contains several dishes. The four of us decided to focus on the Rosico eggs & the Frittatas. “Rustico eggs” is dish of oven baked eggs in one of their stew of your choice. It is served with fresh vegetable salad, 3 types of cheese, aioli paste, bread, butter, jam, coffee and natural juice or Lombrusco Rose wine.
Three of us chose to take this dish with stew of peppers, tomato & spicy salami. The dish is actually very similar to Shakshooka and a bit spicy, most of us liked it. The other dish was the Frittata, which is thick omelet served with similar sides as the Rustico eggs. The chosen frittata was served with potatoes & onion (we skipped the bacon that was originally part of the dish). This dish was described as “very good” by Shaul. As we already mentioned, the courses are served with sides. The bread & the cheese that was served next to it were good and testy. 3 Cappuccinos and one macchiato sealed the deal – this was a good option for Friday morning. We will come back but this time for the regular menu.
