had a really good dinner at bavel and went with @Chowseeker1999’s great recs, thank you. i’ll have to come back try try the foie gras, okra, and chicken.
duck 'nduja hummus - creamy garbanzo beans, jerusalem mix spice, herbs, pita
great pita and hummus and right up there with Dizengoff’s. bavel’s pita seems denser with more crumb, dizengoff’s is thinner and airier, but both are pretty great.
grilled australian prawns - harissa marinade, eggplant tzatziki, herbs, lime
wow, this was definitely the highlight of night. the prawns were some of tastiest and freshest i’ve had since the amazing tiger prawn sushi i had in japan. i don’t know how they did it, but they grilled it in such a way that the head and shell was edible and delicious as if it had been deep fried. the harissa was pleasantly spicy and was balanced perfectly with the cool refreshing tzatziki. Pro tip: save some pita to mop up the shrimp juice, harissa and tzatziki. @Chowseeker1999 must order.
slow roasted lamb neck shawarma - creme fraiche tahini, fermented cabbage, pickled turnips, laffa
Mary had a little lamb
Its neck was roasted slow
I ate it with some laffa bread
And it made my belly grow
licorice root ice cream bonbon - sour licorice caramel, muscovado cake, caramelized white chocolate, maldon
cold and refreshing, subtly sweet and tasted similar to root beer.
