Yossi Shitrit (also chef at Kitchen Market) presides over Mashya, affiliated with a hip, designer boutique hotel in Tel Aviv. Mashya’s kitchens open onto the dining area and an immense green wall. The ingredients are ultra fresh, while the dishes are beautifully presented, and accurately seasoned. The Chef is consistently faithful to his own vision: dishes which could seem traditional are totally reinvented thanks to his own special twist: such as the grilled eggplant, fresh herbs, or fried kale …the five spice chicken, which looks rustic, is surprisingly tender and deliciously regressive . The menu is short, efficient, and balanced, reflecting the Chef’s creative approach and skillful handling of textures and flavors.
