Twenty years ago, had you walked around the grounds of the old Tel Aviv Port, you would have found rundown ceramic shops, garages, hangars and storerooms on small dirty roads. Not anymore. These days, especially in the summer and fall, the place is bustling with people from all over Israel who want to look at the ocean and have a bite to eat. And Kitchen Market is the perfect place to venture to for some very tasty food.
Located on the first floor above the Farmer’s Market, Kitchen Market has a pleasant ambience from the moment you walk in. A relatively small but well-lit space, the restaurant has large windows that face the sea, providing a beautiful view of the Mediterranean. We had the pleasure of sitting at a large bar-like wooden table, with a full view of the sous-chefs creating their magic in an open kitchen.
