While I wasn’t sure what to select for today’s food moment (although I do have some ideas in store), it came to me, literally!
At the end of dinner at a fantastic restaurant on the beach in Herzliya, I asked for the check. The waiter, who had made excellent recommendations for my dinner, asked me if I would mind taking a little extra time, as the restaurant would like to provide me dessert, on the house! As I was in no hurry, I accepted and this arrived:
It is a light Israeli Cheesecake, which was absolutely delicious. The consistency is much lighter than standard cheesecake, and it has a bit of citrus in it to lighten the overall experience up even more. The berries and apricots were a wonderful addition.
So, if you ever find yourself in Herzliya, be sure to go to Yam 7, which is right on the beach behind the Dan Accadia hotel. The main course was prepared to perfection, as I had a tapas with seafood sashimi, shrimp in a tomato based sauce, octopus and calamari tzatziki and hummus.
