Dining travel guide

I recently visited Mena, a Mediterranean bistro restaurant located on Yarakon Street, and I must say, I was impressed. The restaurant is under the direction of Chef Yanon Elel, who has worked in some of the most prestigious kitchens around the world. The restaurant is beautifully situated on a balcony overlooking the Mediterranean Sea, offering a stunning view.

Mena’s emphasis on Mediterranean food is evident in every dish they serve, and the freshness of the ingredients is apparent. The menu is carefully curated, with classic influences and European flair that doesn’t compromise on the small details. I had the pleasure of trying several dishes, and each one was better than the last.

The winter menu features a variety of dishes, from sourdough bread with butter, dua, olive oil, and balsamic from Modena, to sweet potato roulade with confit garlic, feta, hazelnuts, and olive oil. The standout dish for me was the chopped liver with pepper jam, crispy shallots, sour leaves, and African bread. It was a unique twist on a classic dish, and the flavors were perfectly balanced.

Mena’s menu options are a delightful blend of Mediterranean cuisine with European influences, offering a diverse range of dishes to suit all tastes. From classic favorites like Caesar salad with parmesan and crispy potato, to more adventurous options like fish carpaccio with pistachio vinaigrette and chili, the restaurant caters to a variety of palates. Vegetarians and vegans will also find plenty of options, including the red root vegetable pasta with silan, za’atar, and feta, and the greens in the oven with caesar aioli, parmesan, crispy potato, and soft egg. The menu is carefully curated to highlight the freshest ingredients, and the staff is knowledgeable about each dish, making recommendations and accommodating any dietary restrictions. Overall, the menu options at Mena are a delicious journey through the flavors of the Mediterranean.

The service at Mena was impeccable, and the staff was attentive and knowledgeable. They were able to match the needs of our group in terms of food, style, design, and service. The published menus can be slightly changed if necessary, which is a nice touch.

Overall, I highly recommend Mena for anyone looking for a Mediterranean dining experience in a beautiful setting. The prices are reasonable, considering the quality of the food and the level of service. If you’re looking for a place to host a small event, Mena is the perfect choice.

Emek Brasserie: A Unique Twist on Classic Dishes at Affordable Prices

Emek Brasserie: A Unique Twist on Classic Dishes at Affordable Prices

Emek Brasserie, located in a shopping complex in Mishmar Hasharon, offers a cozy and contemporary dining experience that is a far cry from the Israeliness outside. The restaurant mainly relies on regional growers from Emek Hefer to create dishes that put a local twist on familiar classics. Starters include spinach stew bruschetta, a vegetable salad with feta cheese, and roast beef. The main courses feature affordable options like a whole fish in Josper, fish fillet portion, and Lulu chicken. The bourguignon dish is good, but compared to other dishes, it falls a bit short. The pricing is moderate, making it an excellent value for money in local terms. The restaurant's overall uniqueness, character, and strictness reflect superior talent, and the value it delivers is rare. It caters to all types of diners, and visitors can enjoy a real local bistro/brasserie experience with great food at a decent price. As a tourist visiting Brasserie Valley, I was pleasantly surprised by the restaurant's cozy ambiance and unique twist on classic dishes. The vegetable salad with feta cheese was a standout dish, with each ingredient bursting with flavor and perfectly complementing the others. The Lulu chicken was another highlight, cooked to perfection in the wood oven and served with a delicious herb salsa. What impressed me the most was the restaurant's affordable pricing, especially compared to other high-end restaurants in the area. The portions were also generous, making it a great value for money. The staff were friendly and attentive, making my dining experience all the more enjoyable. Overall, I highly recommend Brasserie Valley for anyone looking for a unique and affordable dining experience in Mishmar Hasharon. It's a great spot to relax and enjoy a delicious meal with friends or family.
