I've been wanting to try Zahav for a while now. I've heard so many amazing reviews about the Modern Israeli Cuisine that I had to try it for myself. As I was heading to the restaurant, I couldn't shake this deep nagging feeling in my gut that I should call to make a reservation. I'm glad that I did because there were NO available tables! Actually, their earliest AVAILABLE reservation wasn't until 2 months from the date I called! So, with a broken heart and dissatisfied taste-buds, I obliged and waited for 2 months. Fast forward to now -- it's my turn and I wanted to share with you the dishes that I tried!
tzatziki, cucumber, harissa
Crispy Oyster Mushrooms
This dish was complementary from the chef. Don't be too upset with me, I forgot to write down the ingredients (bad, Njeri!).
english peas, carrots, tzatziki
The rice palif is served as an accompanying side with entrees.
The food was amazing and the service was superb. I can definitely see why Zahav is booked to capacity every night of the week. The portions may look a bit small and they are but the whole point of this super simple menu is that you try more than one plate. For two people, my suggestion is to share maybe 1-2 appetizers (GET THE HUMMUS) and 2-3 entrees to share between the two of you.
After my sister and I finished our meals, we were so stuffed! I would definitely recommend EVERYONE try this place at least once. One thing that fascinated me about this place is that Zahav offers a chef tasting menu! I'm always up for an adventurous time when it comes to noms and I'll be sure to give the tasting menu a try for my next go 'round with Zahav!
Hey, I'm Njeri!
Thank you so much for stopping by!
