She won't predict your future. But she'll cast a warm glow over your past. She, being Hasoania Balkan Kitchen (Hasoania means "Gypsy woman" in Hebrew). This new restaurant in Old Jaffa is the brainchild of novelist and director Lior Gerti, who was searching for a new way to get in touch with his origins and teamed up with young chef Erez Medina to do so. The menu, featuring recipes from both their grandmothers, takes bits and bobs from the Balkan Peninsula. Be sure to try the mosca (their take on Greek moussaka), with juicy eggplant, potato, lamb and béchamel sauce. After one bite, past and present will have blended perfectly in your mouth.
