We love Taizu restaurant and keep it for special occasions to take good friends and family for a treat. The menu took shape during the journey of the Chef Yuval Ben Neria in Southeast Asia. As most Asian restaurants the dishes are recommended to be served in the center of the table for sharing, similar to the eating culture in the east. The menu is a culinary journey, which begins with soft and delicate flavors to deep and daring flavors. To experience the colorful journey of the menu, They recommend choosing a few dishes from each group (Water, Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal) – so you can enjoy all the flavors, textures and colors the restaurant offers. But As of today, they don’t offer vegan options for all the groups (they did in the past).
Water: Bean Noodle leaves Salad with Purple Basil Holly Basil Caramelized Cashew Radishes Shallot onion Chinese Tahini.
Wood: Foot Stickers Mangold – Green Wheat, Macadamia, Garlic chips, Shimeji Mushrooms, Green Peas
from the next time, we visited here the same dish on a different plat.
Earth: Hummus patties in Fresh Coconut with Thai okra, Thai Beans, Green Mango, Kashmir Chili.
Wood: Chinese Vegetables with Oyster mushrooms, Pak Choi, Lemon Grass, Broccoli, in Mushroom sauce
The missing dish that we didn’t order that day was ordered on our next visit So here the dish and an update on this post:
Masaman – Chili Kashmiri Galangal Coconut Tofu Peanuts Basil, served with rice.
This dish was one of the best and we were very happy to have the chance to order it.
The Black Forest dessert, an astonishing display of the dish, a vegan dish that looks and tastes amazing.
Our first experience with Taizu was at their Vegan week in October 2014 a joint work with the vegan chef Gal Barzilai and Taizu. Presented a spectacular Vegan menu of 14 dishes. We would like to see some of them added to the menu. even though its one of our favorite restaurants I’m not sure we can call it Vegan-friendly when we can’t have the experience they recommend with all the groups of flavors.
keep in mind the place offer a discount for the building parking at the evening.
