EYAL SHANI'S FIRST KOSHER RESTAURANT IN THE UNITED STATES

"Malka wraps all our dreams, a meeting place between worlds."

Opened in 2018 in the business district of Tel Aviv, Malka was Eyal Shani’s first Kosher restaurant. Malka brought exciting new tastes into Shani's eclectic culinary DNA, and will continue to do so in New York City.

CHEF EYAL SHANI

Chef Eyal Shani was born in Jerusalem in 1959. His culinary passion was first instilled in him by his grandfather, an agronomist and a dedicated vegan, who exposed him to local markets, fields, and vineyards from a young age. For Shani, opening a kosher restaurant is the most natural thing in the world. The food at Malka is food that he has been making for years that many people could not eat for kosher reasons.
