Gedera 26 Restaurant Review

: At the entrance of the Yemenite quarter, Gedera 26 provides a bridge between Israel’s past and future; as the restaurant’s large glass windows offer an expansive view of battered, graffitied walls, diners are wrapped up in the city’s urban charm. The cooking, meanwhile, reflects chef-owner Amir Kronberg’s Swedish and Iraqi background, and he takes a modern approach in preparing the classics of both cuisines. The chef is no stranger to the open-air market behind his restaurant, and the revolving menu reflects his personal daily selections. Swedish meatballs with spiced lingonberry sauce and mashed potatoes are a menu staple. Chef Kronberg also prepares a take on a Libyan dish of fish stewed in tomato and red pepper sauce. Malabi, a silky custard with whispers of rosewater, crisp toasted pistachios and a brunoise of fresh fruits, is the best ending to the homey yet refined meal.
