Just having opened its doors in 2017, Boya is a modern Israeli restaurant located in the heart of Jing’An. The design of the restaurant echoes chef Ofer Avgil’s previous establishment in Tel Aviv with the same name, a simplistic interior with dark wooden tables and chairs along with floor to ceiling glass windows surrounding the restaurant.
Proud to be the only Israeli restaurant in the city, Boya’s menu includes ethnic dishes such as hummus, falafel, chopped salads and kebabs. In addition, there are international food choices; steaks and grilled salmon kebabs. The food not only represents Israel as a country rich in diversity of culture, it also reflects the ongoing evolution of Israeli tradition. All while celebrating the abundance of modern international cuisine.
Boya makes all of their cheese, jam, granola, focaccia and pizza dough in-house. One of chef Ofer’s proudest dishes is his hummus, a homemade creamy and nutty dip that will transport you back to Jerusalem. The hummus is served with homemade pita bread baked in their wood-fired Taboon. Other signature dishes include their lamb kebab served with roasted eggplant and tahina sauce, and the traditional Shakashuka set with a heavenly mixture of tomatoes, onions, garlic and eggs.
Fresh, flavorful and authentic food is at the heart of Boya’s philosophy. Chef Ofer believes it’s not just about hospitality, but an interactive experience for all.
