Israeli food is all the rage in Paris and we are very happy about it! And speaking of it, a new counter shines a light on Israeli street-food and recently opened in Pigalle. Called Dizen, this mini-spot is inspired by the eateries set in the famous rue Dizengoff in Tel Aviv and unveils on their very short menu a traditional dish still little known in Paris: sabich, and only sabich – yes, you get it, at Dizen, there is only one dish on the menu, it is definitely fresh!
Iconic dish of the Jewish Iraqi culture and keystone of Israeli street-food, sabich is a sandwich based on pita bread stuffed with eggplant, potato, hard-boiled egg, tomato, cucumber, white onion, tahina, amba, fresh herb.
Dizen’s sabich has been modernized while sticking to traditions by French-Israeli chef Yossi Levy: the smooth eggplant is fried to order, the egg is soft-boiled and infused overnight in Oriental broth, the chiogga beetroot is cooked in salt crust (it replaces tomato in the winter), celery is crunchy and replaces cucumber in the winter and of course, the tahina, zhoug (green harissa based on chili pepper, garlic and cilantro), amba (mango-based sauce) are homemade!
To accompany your sabich, David Israel and Marc-Antoine Dudouit – the two founders of Dizen – have a sexy side: homemade falafels and fries to order, very crunchy and to pair with homemade lemonade with fresh mint, or Israeli beer like the famous Maccabi and Goldstar, exclusively imported!
