Paris is open, but we don't need to go there. No, not like that: of course, we need to go there, but not now. Why not now? Everything is corny just – We don't have money to go back and forth to Paris.
On the other hand, what is money? It's dust! What can you say about love! If true love happened, then this is once and for all. It happened to me – I am passionate about French chanson, I love French pastries, I am crazy about French cuisine! I can literally devour it all. But, again, at a distance – Dangling for the weekend to dine at your favorite restaurant or have a cup in a cozy cafe overlooking the Eiffel Tower is not yet realistic.
And then this same love comes to the rescue, which, as you know, destroys mountains. I explain the thought: nobody bothers me to dream about Paris? Not! And to walk around the area in search of such a “miniature of Paris” Does something bother me in the form of a French restaurant, does it require large financial costs? Also no. Inspired by my genius, I quickly pack up and go in search of the Israeli “French paradise” to get my portion of romance.
By the way, the most important detail is missing: the search for “France in Israel” started about a year and a half ago. As it began, so practically ended. It was in Tel Aviv. A chance meeting with acquaintances (although accidents – are not accidental). An offer to drink coffee in an interesting – very cozy – a bakery called Delicatessen, and for one chat “for life” for any cake, dessert or pastries. Remark: no, this is not an advertisement for the – this is a strong recommendation to look into Delicatessen and see for yourself that it simply cannot be tastier. I, my friends, friends of my friends run only here for sweets! So, it was this seemingly random coffee break (we couldn’t stay long – we went to visit the holiday) that became fateful for me personally. Yes, my words may sound pathetic, but you won’t understand until you try it for yourself! Returning to non-random accidents: a meeting, we went to a holiday, planning to buy sweets, we go to Delicatessen, which sells its own baked sweets… do you get the idea? That's the same! I was asked to buy a custard cake. But this delicacy turned out to be so popular that it must be ordered in advance. But even here I was lucky to grab the last box of treats. Believe me, I have never tasted anything better in my life! Everyone was delighted – and adults, and children, and guests, and me! Since then, my sweet romance with this chain of stores has begun. Friends, believe me, these are really high-quality products! Recently, my husband and I went out for breakfast. I thought for a long time where to go to have an easy and tasty meal, and at the same time calmly, without too much noise, tune in to a busy day at work. Guess where I went? Of course, in Delicatessen, on Ibn Gvirol 70, in the center of Tel Aviv.
What was my surprise when I saw a cafe filled to overflowing. But we remember my love for this place, so there was nothing else to do but sit behind the bar. Friends, I never could have imagined how great it could be! I found my French paradise and not somewhere far away, but here in Tel Aviv! Just imagine: morning… the cafe beehive is quietly buzzing (but no one interferes with each other from the word at all)… a cocktail of fragrant coffee and muffin already browned in the ovens… and all this to the accompaniment of subdued French music… Padam padam padam was sung to us by the legendary Edith Piaf, transferring lovers to the small streets of the city – Paris & hellip; Well, isn't that romantic? Well, isn't that Love? …padam padam padam… By the way, we were not the only ones who were in love having breakfast that morning. By no coincidence next to us – both right and left – couples celebrated their wedding anniversaries. Oh, how happy they were… But, as they say, advice to them and love, and we'll be back for breakfast. My husband and I decided to order several dishes, so to speak, for testing (everything is already clear with desserts): poached eggs with bacon, pancakes with solomon and real fatty sour cream.
I will not retell for a long time, but I will say this: everything was insanely delicious! By the way, the morning bonus from – salad as a gift And tasty, and pleasant, and the mood for the whole day from such attention to visitors.
And of course , how can it be without “cherry on the cake” – no dessert. And no way, of course! Therefore, our “morning composition” Perfectly complemented French toast with wedge syrup, banana and figs. M-m-m-m-m-m-m-m-m-m-m-m-m-m-m-m-m-m-m-m-m-m-m-m-m, I write and feel his taste directly….
Special attention – presentation of dishes (my good friend says that under beautiful decoration even tasteless food will be divine). So, even in the worst mood, I can’t find fault with the serving of dishes and their taste. Everything that is served in Delicatessen, in my opinion and appetite, is very beautiful and very, very tasty. Well, in the end, one more scary-important-pleasant bonus from the institution: if you don’t have time to sit in the cafe itself, don’t be in a hurry to get upset, because Delicatessen offers a large assortment of takeaway food – from packaged sausages and cheeses to ready-made meats and salads. Only at this moment I do not advise you to leave purchases at the end of the day. No, no, not because they may not be the first freshness – this is excluded. But because the admirers of this cafe are buying up the most delicious of the delicious in minutes.
The moral of this The story is this: in recent years, the level of institutions in Israel has grown not by one, but by three heads, and therefore many of them want to return again and again. And just Delicatessen took the place of honor of the leader in the list of my favorites. I have found my “French paradise on Israeli soil”, which I sincerely wish you too! Zhanna Beroso
