This tiny restaurant and wine bar, just a clutch of round tables on an alley just off Carmel Market, draws its inspiration from the market's fresh offerings. (The name is Hebrew for "market stall.") The dishes change daily, and the kitchen is well known for dishing out organ meats you might not see much back home. For the less adventurous, the seafood and pork dishes are sure to be fresh and aesthetically appealing. Try also the white pizza with black truffles when in season. The paella with bacon, sausage, shrimp, and mussels is about as nonkosher as it gets for a place whose chef refers to the nearby market as the "Holy of Holies," a Biblical reference to where the Ark of the Covenant was kept.
