For those that love Mediterranean food with a Middle Eastern twist then Kepos Street Kitchen is a must visit!
Chef and owner Michael Rantissi grew up in Tel Aviv, watching his mum cook and feasting on the multi-cultural offerings of his neighbourhood. He did his professional training in Israel at Tadmor College and then studied at the EPI Academy in Paris, then the CIA (not the CIA, that’s the Culinary Institute of America) in New York. Michael’s meals are created by memories of his childhood meals with a strong Mediterranean influence.
I recently popped into the restaurant with some friends when we were filming a video and tasted some of the amazing food. The food is fresh, tasty and the coffee is good too!
