Passover is the time of the year when Jews celebrate the Exodus. Israelis have found a way to enjoy this holiday, creating delicious Passover-friendly foods. Here are restaurants which make keeping kosher for Passover a piece of cake.
Lechem Basar offers a full menu that is kosher for passover. From shnitzel to corn bread hamburgers, chefs use either corn or matza flour as a tasty substitute for ingredients that rise. Manager Joachim Amsellem shares how he keeps the whole restaurant completely kosher. Two days before Passover, the restaurant is cleaned thoroughly to remove all remnants of bread. After the cleaning, a representative from the Chief Rabbinate makes sure every fork, dish, ingredient and even wine bottle is strictly following the kosher laws. You can enjoy a serene view of the Mediterranean Sea while eating a delicious kosher for Passover meal at the Lechem Basar branch at the Tel Aviv Port.
Nola is a charming American bakery located on Dizengoff Street. During Passover, this pâtisserie still sells leavened goods, offering treats for everyone whether you choose to keep kosher or not. Owner Talya Rasner explains that instead of using a flour substitute, chefs create flourless desserts. Some of their flour-free specialities include chocolate cake, baked chocolate mousse, and pistachio cake with raspberry whipped cream. Nola also has their regular selection of gluten-free desserts that are also kosher for Passover.
Room Service is one of the trendiest restaurants in the city with an impeccable Passover menu. The Avidan brothers, owners of this hip spot, believe it is extremely important to keep kosher on this holiday. In response, they’ve made incredible dishes that are flour-free. One of their specialities is the Passover Gnocchi, a dish so delicious that it is nearly impossible to tell the pasta is made special for the holiday.
Moses is not normally a kosher restaurant. You can order a juicy bacon cheeseburger any day of the week, which is taboo according to kosher law.
