Socca Market in Tel Aviv has brought a new concept in dining to its unique venue for weddings, parties and major events. Instead of the standard fixed menu and waiter service, guests are invited to make the rounds of food stalls, each one featuring cuisine from different corners of the globe.

 

 

Drawing its inspiration from London’s Borough Market, New York’s Chelsea Market and Barcelona’s La Boqueria -- and more recently, Tel Aviv’s Sarona Market and Shuk Tzafon -- Socca Market comprises stalls that serve food representing the following cuisines:

 

 

Israeli (Mediterranean) - hummus, tehina, lamb kabab, skewers of shishlik and sabih

Italian -  pastas, focaccias, antipasti (grilled vegetables) and bruschettas

Greek - souvlaki, dolmades (stuffed grape leaves) Greek salad, gyros, fried red mullet

Asian - dim sum dumplings, stir-fried noodles, bao sandwiches, Asian cabbage salad  

American - fresh grilled hamburgers from prime beef, coleslaw, French fries

 

 

 

 

 

A delicious spread of desserts is served, featuring brownies with hot fudge sauce, chocolate chip cookies, hot apple crumble with pareve vanilla ice cream, meringues with berry sauce, lemon meringue tarts, and assorted pastries.

 

 

There is a full bar serving cocktails, sangria, and soft drinks, and a separate bar for wines.

 

 

Socca Market, which is certified kosher, is located in a trendy district of lofts and studios in south Tel Aviv.

 

 

Address: 27 Shocken Sreet (entrance from Shvil Hameretz)

Inspired by the city’s vibrant culinary scene, a duo of Russian investors who own restaurants in Russia and Europe have now established a presence in the heart of Tel Aviv.

 

Following a long search, the team identified a 3.5-storey bauhaus building on Dizengoff Street as their ideal location and spent months transforming it into a restaurant with a spacious al fresco area and two floors of tables, with a third underway.

 

The concept of the new restaurant is a cosmopolitan bistro where conversation is meant to flow, fueled by drinks and good food. Hence the name Table Talk, which derives from the literary genre that evolved from stimulating discourse.

 

 

 

 

The cuisine at Table Talk is fusion, while the menu is cosmopolitan with a solid Eastern European foundation. Among the specialties are calves’ liver pâté, chopped herring, fresh salads with sunflower oil dressing, and the pièce de résistance -- blini with crême fraîche, red caviar, and salmon cured in-house.

 

There is a well-stocked bar, of course, with premium vodkas taking pride of place.  

 

The Russian theme carries over into dessert as well, with delicious cherry vareniki topped with crême fraîche.

 

The restaurant is open all day, with enticing breakfast and brunch entrées on offer. There is even a children's menu.

 

 

 

 

Table Talk is already becoming an active venue for cultural events, including exhibitions, literary evenings, film screenings and lectures. Musical performances are scheduled to take place every Thursday, with occasional artist meet and greets.

 

In addition, Table Talk is an attractive venue for private events and functions.

 

The restaurant is open daily from 09.00 to 01.00 (Saturdays from 10.00). Reservations are accepted.

Regina, the veteran kosher restaurant in the Hatachana compound, has launched a new winter menu and a lavish “all you can eat” buffet, served Fridays from 11.00 until 14.00 (or one hour before the commencement of the Sabbath).

 

 

The buffet reflects the philosophy of the restaurant, which is to serve traditional Jewish food representing the cuisines of all the ethnic communities of the Diaspora: Ashkenazic, Sephardic, North African and Middle Eastern. As such, it is a smorgasbord of dishes that could justifiably be classified as Jewish comfort food, featuring stews and casseroles that are hearty, filling and warming -- ideal fare for the winter.

 

 

The categories of food on display at the buffet include appetizers, salads, soups, main courses and desserts. The main courses comprise meat, fish chicken and even vegan  options.

 

 

 

Among the appetizers and mezze are a creamy ikra, an intense chopped liver, puffed pastry stuffed with ground meat, homemade tehina, and baked eggplant with tehina, date honey and pomegranate seeds. These are complemented nicely with thick slices of fresh hallah.

 

 

The piping hot soups are chicken and vegetable with kreplakh (meat-filled dumplings), and puréed lentil soup.  

  

 

Main courses include a traditional cholent (hamin) with kishka (stuffed derma), moussaka, osh pilaf with chicken and beef, shakshuka with eggplant, fish patties in a savory tomato sauce, sofrito with meatballs, and Hungarian goulash.

 

 

Desserts are Regina’s cakes, apple strudel, dates and halva. The restaurant has its own creative specialty cocktails and an adequate wine list, along with the usual soft drinks.

 

 

The cost of the buffet is a reasonable NIS 84 for adults, and NIS 50 for children. The regular menu -- including kids’ menu -- is also available, as well as breakfast, served Fridays from 10,00 until 13.00.

President Reuven Rivlin today (Wednesday) met at his residence in Jerusalem with United States Permanent Representative to the United Nations, Ambassador Nikki R. Haley.

President Rivlin welcomed her and said, “You are a dear friend of Israel. We appreciate your strong stand on the world’s most important stage, in support of the security of the people and the State of Israel. With your support we see the beginning of a new era. Israel is no longer alone at the UN. Israel is no longer the UN’s punching bag.”

He continued, “When I spoke at the UN on Holocaust Memorial Day, I said that the UN must learn from the lessons of the past, and stand up against hatred and racism. I said it must end its obsession with targeting Israel. Progress has been made. Israel’s standing at the UN has improved. But sadly, we have a long way to go. Both in holding to account, public statements made by officials, and in supporting regulation to reduce the ridiculous number of discussions and resolutions against Israel. This is also true in the Human Rights Council - which has been hijacked as a weapon against Israel - and in UNESCO, where they seek to rub out the history of the Jewish people.”

The President thanked the Ambassador for her great contribution to the State of Israel, and said, “Ambassador Haley, as the representative the US - Israel’s greatest and strongest ally - we appreciate very much your support of Israel, and all you do to stand up for the values of freedom and democracy which we share. Welcome to Israel, welcome to Jerusalem.”

Ambassador Haley thanked the President for his warm welcome and said, “Thank you Mr. President for taking the time to meet with us, it is an absolute thrill to be here in Israel, I so much appreciate the support we have received from the people of Israel. But I feel somewhat guilty because all I did at the United Nations was tell the truth. I have never taken kindly to bullies, and the UN has bullied Israel for a very long time, and we are not going to let that happen anymore. It is a new day for Israel in the United Nations. We just got back from Geneva, talking about the Human Rights Council and hopefully it will be a new day at the Human Rights Council when it comes to Israel.”

She concluded by saying she was greatly looking forward to her visit to Israel and said, “I am looking forward to taking in the history, the beauty, the tradition, and all that comes with the magic of Israel. Thank you very much for having me it is a pleasure to be here.”

Friday was a beautiful late spring day; the gardens were lovely, the weather was fine; the guests were elegantly attired; the refreshments were generous and delicious; all the makings of a happy celebration marking the National Day of Sweden. H.E. Carl Magnus Nesser, ambassador of Sweden to the State of Israel, hosted the event at the ambassadorial residence in Herzlia Pituach.

The event was attended by many Swedish nationals living in Israel; Swedish music, Swedish food, Swedish sponsors and a generous open bar – all the makings of a happy event.

A fundamentally agricultural holiday, Shavuot commemorates the custom of bringing offerings to the Holy Temple from the first fruits of the harvest and the first animals born to the flocks.

Shavuot, the Holiday of Weeks, is one of the three pilgrimage holidays, along with Pesach and Sukkot. These are the holidays on which the whole Jewish people would come to Jerusalem​ in ancient times, when the Holy Temple was there, and would offer animal and grain sacrifices.
