Yo'Ezer Meat and Wine Bar: Tel Aviv, Israel
Sheeps brain, egg yolk, bread. A rich and exotic surprise to my palate.
A medley of finely cured meats and salmon delight, with a paired side of egg salad with the right amount of acidity balancing the protein dishes.
Extremely memorable pairing of lox, mini pancake, and artisan cream cheese spread. Again, showcasing proper acidity paired with right creamy texture and fluffy sweetness of mini pancake.
Savory beef bourguignon - if I were a carnivore I would not have shared this dish.
Perhaps my favorite dish of all! A seemingly pedestrian style dish, however amazed with its succulent combination of savory and sour, right acidity, and absolutely perfect textural pairings of meat, smooth potatoe, crispy pickles, and pickled sauerkraut. Not such a pedestrian dish afterall.
Ahhh, very nicely prepared pasta al dente. Just like they make it in Italy. Prepared with juicy combination of stewed beef and fresh pecorino cheese shaved on top.
Pretty good Sidecar cocktail. Soledad favorite still lies with Spuce SF, however (http://soledad-bleu-etoile.blogspot.com/2009/11/spruce-sf-san-francisco.html).
May very be the best Spanish style flan I've had all of my global culinary adventures... Perfect creaminess, perfect texture on top, perfect caramel butterscotch sauce.
