Taizu

Derech Menachem Begin 23 | Central Tel Aviv | $$$

This place is super expensive, and difficult to get a table, but probably one of the best restaurants in Tel Aviv. Every dish is better than the last one, it is Asian fusion cooked to perfection. Taizu’s menu is an ode to Asian-Middle Eastern fusion cuisine, conceptualised during Chef Yuval Ben Neriah’s trip to Southeast Asia. His creations are meant to be shared. The plates are placed in the centre of the table, as in Asian countries where everything is meant to be tasted by all. The menu is conceived as a culinary journey: it moves from soft and delicate to deep and bold flavours. You choose your dishes among 5 different sections: ‘Water’, ‘Wood’, ‘Fire’, ‘Earth’ and ‘Metal’, get ready to be surprised! It could be a struggle to get a table, but it is worth it after the first bite.

Nam

Dizengoff Street 275 | Central Tel Aviv | $$

The spacious restaurant is decorated with simple and elegant Thai decorations – giving you an authentic ambience yet not making you feel overwhelmed. From the moment you walk through their ‘doors’, the staff are automatically friendly and attentive to all your needs. After you have been seated and given the menu, a staff member approaches to answer any questions you may have and explain about the specials of the day (something that they are very consistent with). Their menu entails a variety of authentic Thai dishes suitable for all palates. From extra spicy beef entrecote salad, for the brave and daring, to delicious warming and relaxing soups. They offer a variety of exotic curries, rice and noodles as well as amazingly refreshing salads.
