Okinawa, Levotin 7
Right by Abraham Hostel. Jonathan and I went there one of the first nights.

There’s actually another Okinawa somewhere, but this one is right by Abraham. The service isn’t great by American standards, but as this usually doesn’t bother me anyway, I’m also pretty sure service kind of isn’t the great in Israel, so I try to take off my American lenses and acknowledge it.
They don’t have an English menu for sushi at the restaurant, so they’re great at telling you what to get.
I got the special Vegetable roll (and ordered 2 orders of it) ‘The Crunch Vegi”, which is a special roll filled with asparagus (usually tempura, but I obviously asked them to not fry it since I can’t have oil), avocado, kanpy (which is basically like pumpkin), chives, roasted almonds, and I asked to leave out the Aoli-wasabi sauce as that is dairy. And it all comes wrapped in avocado.
I’ve been here multiple times. I came with Jonathan first on what felt like a date- shout out to our lovely fake date until he didn’t offer to pay. Then I came back after getting drunk at Trivia night at Abraham Hostel (love the free shots of Arak for cheering for ourselves more than anyone for having the best name and than winning trivia) with Yoav, Jonathan, Shayna, and Jay the Abraham photographer. I also went with Kailen, where we each got 2 rolls and shared a super delicious drink that had Elderberry liquor and tea in it.
