eLuna revisited Fresh Kitchen Herzlia. The restaurant is on the ground level of the Arena Mall, facing the boat marina. There is both indoor and outdoor seating. In nice weather, the outdoor seating is a must. The restaurant also has a coral seating area indoors, near the restaurant counter.
Arena is a large mall with many good restaurants. I believe that this is the only kosher mehadrin restaurant in the mall. Fresh Kitchen is definitely the only restaurant in the mall that emphasizes good healthy food at reasonable prices.
The Fresh Kitchen menu (Hebrew and English) offers a good number of breakfast alternatives. For an evening meal the restaurant offers some pasta dishes, mains including quiche, fish dishes, and a very large selection of salads. We settled on a soup and one of the higher end salads. The sweet potato soup - the soup of the day- was hot and tasty. I found it a bit peppery but that suited my companion's preference.
The menu posts the calorie value for each of the salads and for many of the other dishes. I was surprised to learn that our string bean and mushroom salad with tofu was 500 calories. Surprised, till I saw the size of the portion. This is a huge salad that can easily be shared. In fact sharing a salad and another main course would be a good strategy for dining there. But note that many main dishes are served with a small salad, and you would not need two salads. Check it out.
The desserts are one of the calling cards of this heath-focused restaurant. Go figure it. We didn't
indulge, but it took a lot of will-power to say no. Even without a sweet end to the meal, we had a nice time at Fresh Kitchen. The food was tasty, the service was efficient and helpful and the restaurant was well run. We were especially happy to learn, in a conversation with the owner, that eLuna brings this restaurant a lot of guests. When our discerning eLuna members favor a restaurant, which is a sure sign that it is a quality dining experience.
Our bill for a soup and a salad came to 82 shekels. The restaurant honored our eLuna discount, to which we added 15% for the waitress, and paid with a credit card. Couldn't have been easier.
