HaSolelim Street 14 | East Tel Aviv | $$

Topolopompo is probably one of the most fancy restaurants in Tel Aviv, worth every shekel. The menu is a paradise for any foodie, but we recommend having the surprise menu – a waiter asks you all kinds of questions about your preferences, restrictions (including prize) and they bring whatever dishes they think you will like (they always get it right!), trust the chef, every dish is better than the one before. Read more
