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 in composed with the freshest local produce. Tuna sashimi with a sharp wasabi foam and vinaigrette is a refreshing start. Sea bass filet is skillfully cooked, the skin well seasoned with local spice. House-made ravioli filled with honeyed sweet potato come in a smooth sage butter and white wine sauce; the sweet ravioli play off the flavors of earthy fava beans and the tannic wine. 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.
