Truck Deluxe has given up life on the road and set up shop in a new bricks-and-mortar premises in the Jaffa neighbourhood of Tel Aviv. The truck has been pulled apart and reconstructed as part of the kitchen with the added bonus of proper chairs and tables. In addition, the shopfront opens up street completely for a bit of extra atmosphere from the surrounding flea market. Studio OPA designed the space, imagining the venue as a backyard garage. Cans of motor oil adorn the walls, and industrial materials such as stainless steel and humble wood panelling are also in evidence. An injection of colour comes via a tile pattern arrangement running around the top of the dining area. This is a ceramic tribute inspired by the home of Truck Deluxe’s Southern USA barbecue style menu.
