Diego San, the newest kid on the block, is now one of the hottest newbies on Tel Aviv’s culinary scene. Venture southwards to Levinsky market and you will discover the most original fusion and truly unique concoction of Korean and Mexican traditional dishes that compose Diego San’s innovative menu. Do not miss their signature caramel, peanut and fish sauce flavoured ‘Pad Thai Popcorn’ or the sriracha-slathered ‘Korean Nachos’, the ultimate and exciting bar snacks to accompany your cocktail of choice. If you’re looking for a heavier bite: get your Bahn on with their melt-in-your-mouth steamed bun cheeseburger. All the visually Mexican elements, neon coloured skulls, Virgin Mary figurines and large bright-coloured flowers, give the rough edges of this alternative grungy diner-meets-bar a softer sweeter side. Whatever you do, make sure to pay a visit to the highly instagram-able bathrooms, showcasing a serene Asian temple of sorts with funky lighting and illusions. The décor, concept and ambience, combined with an inexpensive diverse range of exciting foodstuffs, make Diego San a must-try this summer. Enjoy a Mango Lassi or Pina Colada in their large graffiti-adorned courtyard and groove to a different featured DJ on any given summer night.
