Dallal Restaurant Restaurant Review: Tucked away on a modest corner of Shabazi Street, Dallal Restaurant opens into a lush garden, a magical world of tall trees and blooming flowers. The enchantment flows indoors with the breeze and the airy white drapery. Meanwhile, the menu is composed with the freshest local produce. Start with the sweetbreads, made with carrot cream, tarragon and a smooth speck of shallot oil on top. Also a good choice are the lamb ribs stewed with white beans, artichoke and bone marrow then served with a cool salsa of peas and mint. A selection of fine wines from Israel and around the world is available. To capture the beauty of the cuisine, try a local boutique wine. If you want to splurge, go for the 2004 Yiron from Galil Mountain Winery. Savor the garden experience with a seasonal dessert such as the “Summer Fruit” with a gentle hibiscus lychee soup, vanilla cream and tart lemon sorbet. In Arabic, Dallal translates as “pampering,” and the restaurant lives up to the meaning of its name whether experienced on a romantic night out or during a family brunch on a crisp weekend.
