My first entry on this blog discussed my amazing experience at Deca, a fish restaurant in south Tel Aviv (July 31, 2008 entry). I thought that kosher dairy cuisine had finally arrived. But last week when I returned, for the first time in months, I was completely disappointed and do not foresee returning to the restaurant. The food is still very good to excellent (such as the fish falafel balls which are outstanding); but the portions have become so skimpy that one feels that the food is being rationed. Given the prices, I was annoyed to only get three small slices of bread in the bread basket and even more annoyed when I had to ask for a refill that also consisted of two small slices. My husband's fish entree was the smallest portion of fish that we ever received as a restaurant entree; when he returned home, he went right to the kitchen in search of more food. We kept our bill down simply because by the time dessert rolled around, we decided to forego dessert at the restaurant and go for ice cream instead.
