Pampering – Delikatessen

15 Jul

R2M group opens a new place, an event that food lovers like us will never skip. It’s true, it took us a while and a lot of recommendations from the people around us (usually we are the recommending side), but we got there and we will be back.

The new place is located in Yehdua HaLevi street, not really the hottest street in Tel Aviv, despite the “5 minutes walk from Rothschild”. Nevertheless, Ruti and Maty manage to bring this boring street to life.

We got there on a late morning Friday, after training at the gym, and we enthused to get back all the calories we have burnt. R2M specialty is pampering – immediately after ordering our dishes we got  a complementary basket of bread and pastry alongside with butter and smooth strawberry jam.



Shahar took Pastya – puff pastry filled with spinach and cheese and served with goat yogurt, hard-boiled egg and olives. Shahar liked the dish and especially the olives. Yet, he felt that the pastry had a bit too much spinach that really controlled the dish.

Inbar took French Crockett – Which is kind of Crockett Madam – two layers of puff pastry filled with Emmental cheese and ham, on which you get two eggs sunny side up style. Pure guilty pleasure.

The brunch was definitely good  but the highlight of our visit (and the place) is the deli inside. A real deli that makes whatever you want to start cooking (though you just finished eating). The place is full of goods – meat, cheese, baked pastry, bread, special canning and “homemade” food you can take home and much more. Without a doubt, when R2M group creates a new project – you know it will be the best in town.
