We’ve waited and it’s finally here: Aharoni, the king of Asian cuisine, developed the Hiro Ramen soups, which is located in the heart of the exciting Sarona Market.
Almost a year ago there was a rumor in the culinary world of Tel Aviv that native Israeli Aharoni is returning to the Asian cuisine business. For months before the opening of Sarona market, Hiro’s instagram account frequently posted appetizing pictures of steaming ramen soups, steamed Asian dumplings and salads, which brought enthusiasm among lovers of Asian cuisine and made the wait particularly difficult. Since the opening Hiro, Hiro Ramen soups has been all the rave of the Sarona market.
The concept of Hiro is focused and very limited. The main course only served at the bar (eating around the bar overlooking the chef or in a little cluster of tables around the podium) is ramen: You will find three kinds of soup, all with noodles developed by Aharoni himself after a research trip to the east and manufactured specifically for Hiro first plant marking.
Hiro offers three different kinds of Raman, but I will first talk about the meat flavored Raman. Ramen with chicken or beef is served with a huge bowl of fine grain noodles, soya,egg, pickled sprouts, bok choy, shiitake mushrooms and scallions (52 NIS for chicken or 56NIS for beef). For the vegetarians, they offer a Raman with tofu, wakame seaweed, egg, bok choy, scallions, pickled daikon and shiitake mushrooms (44 NIS).
Ramen is served in the Far East in countless versions, one of which includes the popular version with bacon and ham soup. Of course, the vegetarian variation has been based on fresh, local vegetables and soy. Unlike Ramen restaurants in the Far East where you are recommended to eat fresh on location, Hiro provides the option of take.
Hiro’s small menu offers appetizers such as spinach filled vegan gyoza with pak choy and onions (5 for 28 NIS), Chicken filled gyoza with green onions and shiitake mushrooms ( 5 for 32 NIS). They also offer sweet Asian glazed grilled wings that is served with ginger,miso and soy shitake( 38 NIS) and other different Asian salads. For those looking to add some drinks on their meal, they offer different types of sake and offer the imported beer of Singha.
Those looking for a different type of eating experience then your typical Tel Aviv café or meat restaurant, I highly recommend you try Aharoni’s Ramen. While you’re there, walk around and enjoy the almost endless variety of shops that the new Sarona Market offers.
