- 20 Simtat Beit HaSho’eva, Tel Aviv
Billing itself as a vegan boutique, Zakaim is not only vegan-friendly, but also environment-friendly.
Alongside the vegan takes on classic Israeli and international dishes like Caesar salad (with avocado aioli), Jerusalem Mixed Grill, stuffed cabbage and pizza, among others, you can also cocktails made with only the freshest ingredients. Try the Bloody Mary made with fresh tomatoes, olive oil, garlic and green chili, a fresh-squeezed orange Campari or, if you’re feeling particularly Israeli, some homemade almond arak. Just don’t ask for a straw because Zakaim doesn’t use any plastic products.
Yes, no plastic in an Israeli restaurant. You have to see it to believe it.
