There is no greater pleasure than meeting a good friend over a nice glass of wine and good food.
One of my best friends is a devout vegetarian. A few months ago she announced that she is “converting” to veganism, a fact that made our meetings that much more challenging. This is why I was so glad when chef Avi Biton from Adora restaurant just launched a vegan menu and opened a new world of encounters of the vegan kind.
Since its opening five years ago Adora has had a French menu with Mediterranean undertones. Chef Biton says: “For the longest time I’ve wanted to create a separate menu for the vegan crowed and lately I’ve held special vegan theme nights. After listening to many vegans and hearing their opinions and critique of the limited selection of vegan dishes in restaurants in Israel, I’ve decided to create a whole new menu featuring vegan interpretations to my own personal Mediterranean cuisine. I believe this will make the vegan clientele feel that Israeli restaurants do offer a variety of vegan dishes”.
The new menu was developed by chef Biton in the last year and it is served daily alongside the restaurant’s regular menu so carnivores and vegan can co-dine peacefully.
The menu features twelve new colorful and flavorful dishes that are targeted to the vegan crowed but will please every palate.
