Restaurant Dai'as: Citron (Tel Aviv)

Located in a small hotel in Tel Aviv, this was the only decent Mehadrin place I could track down. After descending steps into the main dining area, make sure to ask to be seated outside. We did, and it was worth it- more on that later.

The French Onion soup is quite good, although it could use some more Mozzarella cheese- ask for some on the side. (Oddly, it isn't listed as "French" Onion soup, just Onion Soup. Funny, for a place that enjoys touting its supposedly French leanings.)

The Lasagna was good- more "bready" than I expected, which just made it more surprising, not worse. Overall, I enjoyed it, and would order it again. The salad on the side was lightly dressed with a slightly sweet Italian style dressing, and was wonderful. My friend's Fettuccini Alfredo wasn't too good- they do it in an interesting soupy kind of way, and the noodles seemed slightly overcooked.

Dessert was decent, in case you're wondering. Except for the minuscule Apple Pie portions, which I had to eat very, very carefully in order not to accidentally swallow it.

And a wonderful bonus was being able to eat outside, since the tables aren't actually outside, just on an outside balcony. It overlooks a parking lot, which offered several interesting incidents of its own for our entertainment, as well as a nice view of the HaYarkon promenade/boardwalk. (Photo Above).

Side note- I wasn't all too impressed with the menu's English; take a look at this photo and see if you agree with me. Note- if you catch less than three, you need some help yourself.

Place is located in the Prima Hotel, on the Yarkon (near the Sheraton).
It was formerly the Prime Grill. You can find more details on this website, although in classic Israeli style they've neglected to update it with info on the Prime Grill change to Citron.

Kashrus is TA Mehadrin. I do NOT take responsibility or achrayus on its kashrus. Do your own due diligence.

And as they say here, B'Taovon.

Not odd and not funny. French onion soup is made from beef broth and adding cheese would make it unkosher. So it is just onion soup with cheese!

Ah...didn't know that. That would make the many other kosher dairy restaurants that list it as French Onion wrong, then. Thanks for the tidbit!
