Craving lunch Tel Aviv style? Lotan Lahmi (ex-Hôtel Prince de Galles) has what you need! Near the Gare de l’Est, from a kitchen that opens out onto a small dining room with pale pink walls, this former pastry chef sends out his incredible hummus prepared all kinds of ways: soberly paired with soft pita and warm chickpeas, fried parsley, olive oil, paprika and cumin (€8), or judiciously matched up with slow-roasted chicken thigh and onions (€10), or even with some delicious roasted cauliflower that’s slightly caramelized, with tahini, parsley and a green chili purée (€9.5). Plus, there are a few cute salads to nibble on as well: high-flying tabbouleh with cauliflower, lemon, mint and pomegranate; beetroot, red cabbage, date and dill… €3.50 each. For dessert, there’s a refreshing malabi (Middle Eastern panna cotta) with rose syrup, toasted peanuts and grated coconut (€3.50), tahini shortbread (€1.50), etc. And to drink? Rose water citronnade (+€1 with the mains) or cardamom-spiced coffee (€2.50). Hummus plates from €8 to €10.50, salad €3.50, desserts from €1.50 to €3. // M.A.-L.
