If life in Tel Aviv is a never ending party, as Tel Avivians tend to proclaim, DiscoTokyo is the newest, hottest, block party
The single, not-too-big room, consists of a few dozen seats, decorated in a homey atmosphere and dominated by a long bar, behind which the cooks do their best out-in-the-open, is the latest restaurant of Ruti Broudo and R2M hospitality group, and maybe its most ambitious, albeit most humble.
As far from your typical Sushi place, Disco Tokyo suggests Japanese
and Pan-Asian influenced food. The menu features dishes that are the result of a long and thorough learning process of the “home cuisine” in the land of the rising sun, adapted to the Israeli kitchen and taste, and the local ingredients.
From the basic, yet un-western Ramen soup and Gioza dumplings, to the Japanese version of the Eastern-European potato salad or the
Korean take on Italian Bolognese pasta, whatever we make is as fresh and as good as we know.
The decor is not Japanese, the cooks don’t wear Japanese Clothes and
the hostess will not lead you to your seats dressed in a Kimono. This is a Tel Avivian eating hall, and not a far-eastern theme park. It grows on you slowly along the drinking of Sake or any cocktail you like. As Talking Heads’ David Byrne once said: “It ain’t no fooling around.”
