Asia-Terranean Summer Menu from award-winning Tel Aviv restaurant TAIZU
June 2016: Award-winning Chef Yuval Ben Neriah brings his signature Asia-Terranean concept to Taizu's new 2016 Summer Menu comprising of fresh, seasonal ingredients. The overall culinary vision is based on Ben Neriah’s personal interpretation of street foods spanning five different countries in South East Asia–India, China, Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam.
The menu varies from an East meets West-inspired Wild Fish Ceviche spiced with Yellow Chilli Cream and hints of Thai Okra to a unique take on the Indian dish Shpondra (short ribs) that contrasts the sweet flavours of Japanese pumpkin with the sour zest of Apple Cider. The newly created dessert takes a complementary, yet contemporary spin on the traditional apples & cheese, combining fresh Brioche with a Cucumber Sorbet. For full menu, please see below.
Curated by Pitsou Kedem Architects and Baranowitz-Amit Design Studio, the interior design of the restaurant also takes inspiration from the Chef's excursions through the Far East, as well as from the five elements of Chinese Philosophy (Fire, Water, Metal, Wood and Earth). Most recently Ben Neriah's interpretation of an authentic Japanese Ramen bar, Miazaki, has been opened in the Tel Aviv North Food Market.
