Yona is named after the Prophet Jonah, who escaped the prophecy and met the whale. He went into the sea at the precise location of the restaurant, the historic Jaffa port; the oldest functioning port in the world.
An open source restaurant, Yona offers complete transparency to its culinary magic: admire the chefs in action as they turn raw materials into delicious delectables. The food is exceptionally fresh thanks to excellent raw materials; the bread is baked on site, the yogurt and ricotta are homemade, and fresh salmon and meat are smoked in-house.
Cool to see their love of open source, but wished that their website used something like a WP.com Restaurant theme 🙂

That’s funny! But more about ‘commercial open source’, a real open source restaurant, you should be able to jump in the kitchen and contribute to the meals of the customers with your own ingredients or cooking technique 🙂
When I read “open source restaurant”, I thought it meant that they share their recipes openly and let others submit changes to those recipes 🙂
ya, that would be cool too.
The first time I saw that sign, I felt that they simply latched onto a popular term without really knowing what it meant. Next time I’m there, I’ll ask. It’ll probably turn out to be something like “open plan kitchen”. 🙂
let us know how the conversation goes.
