In the heart of Jaffa's flea market lies "Puaa", a beloved, veteran and unique café – restaurant. Established in 1999, Puaa is now celebrating its 16th anniversary – a rare phenomena in Tel-Aviv! The place is named after owner Puaa Ladijensky, who has created a charming and magical spot in an original location, where you can catch your breath and take a break from Tel-Aviv's Hectic pace.
The menu at Puaa is anything but pretentious; it is homely, nourishing, healthy and wholesome, consisting of delicious unique dishes such as: broccoli and cashew nuts pasta, chicken liver in Marsala wine, spinach with raw Tehini, Farro and date syrup salad, caramelized bananas – and a selection of Israeli boutique wines. Among the many guests visiting Puaa (consisting of couples, families, children, young and old) is a regular, loyal clientele, those visiting the flea market and of course those who simply cherish beauty and tranquility.
The décor at Puaa is the outcome of constant love and care. The place is full of ornaments, antiques, pieces of nostalgia and a whole lot of authenticity: the tableware, the pictures on the walls, the furniture, the amazing boxes, and even special clothing – all this and much more can be purchased at Puaa, and fortunately so – as it is just so easy to fall in love with the beauty surrounding you at all times when you are at Puaa.
On Tuesday nights Puaa offers a selection of fish and sea food prepared by Shooki on the grill at the outdoor section of the café. During the winter months Puaa offers delightful live shows every Thursday. But even on a regular week day or on the week-end – Puaa is always a sweet place to pass a few (or many) moments at.
