Einstein St 40, Tel Aviv-Yafo, Israel
If you're looking for a great brunch on Tel Aviv, I would highly recommend to check Comme Il Faut in the promenade.
All organic food, fresh products and interesting twists on all the classical Isareli breakfast items: salads, freshly baked bread,...
Tel Aviv-Yafo, Israel
The flea market in Jaffa Tel Aviv is a great area to find some great antiques, steals and deals, but also to enjoy great restaurants and cafes which 'adopt' the Vintage Retro chic to their interior design, menus and atmosphere. One of the places I...
Ha-Dolfin St 1, Tel Aviv-Yafo, Israel
The original patriarch of this outfit sold hummus from a pushcart before opening the shop more than 40 years ago. His descendants make two or three big batches every day, which they serve from 8 a.m. until they run out. 1 Dolphin St., Jaffa,...
Neve Tzedek, Tel Aviv-Yafo, Israel
Sixty miles of bicycle paths crisscross Tel Aviv. The best trail: a four-mile beachfront promenade that stretches from the Neve Tzedek neighborhood to the port. —Michele Chabin This appeared in the November/December 2010 issue.
HaCarmel St 11, Tel Aviv-Yafo, Israel
If you are on the hunt for a great local market, definitely head to Carmel's open-air market. Sample some of Israel's local delicacies and splurge on candies and other desserts. From my experience the vendors are friendly and don't pressure you to...
Ahad Ha'Am St 6, Tel Aviv-Yafo, Israel
This organic café moved from its former spot in a village north of Tel Aviv, and comes across as a happy mix of enlightened urbanity and rural roots. (Most of the ingredients still come from the original location.) Breakfast here is covered if you...
Shabazi St 55, Tel Aviv-Yafo, Israel
A perfect way to start the morning in Tel Aviv: plein-air breakfast on the most charming street in Neve Tzedek. Lulu’s may look like a French bistro, but the spread I ordered (a variety of warm breads with the usual dips of tahini, hummus, creamy...
Yehuda ha-Levi St 79/81, Tel Aviv-Yafo, Israel
Israel is well known for its rich and fresh breakfast. Same as there is a 'Continental Breakfast' there is also the coin for 'Israeli Breakfast'. The breakfast usually includes chopped salad made by fresh vegetables, assorted cheese from the Golan...
Levinsky 84, Tel Aviv-Yafo, Israel
One of the best ways to experience a country is through its food. There are quite a lot of open markets in Israel (shuk) and recently, due to some touristic demand, a local company called Mekomy started running some culinary tours in Tel Aviv. For...
Tel Aviv-Yafo, Israel
There is no better way to end the day and decompress than watching the sun goes down from the beach. Even better when you watch the sunset with your love ones. The good thing in Israel is that it has 125 miles of golden sun soaked beaches, which...
Omar Ibn Katab, ירושלים
Israelis love to eat and therefore snacks and street food are playing an important role in the day. Favorite snacks include bagel shaped seasame sprinkled bread (can be found in the shuk or most likely in the old city of Jerusalem), falafel (fried...
Matalon St 44, Tel Aviv-Yafo, Israel
Israel is located along the Mediterranean Sea and have few ports and fishing areas; Haifa, Acre, Ashdod, Tiberias, Eilat and Jaffa. Therefore, there are a lot of great fish and seafood restaurants especially in these cities but also across the...
Shopping in the food markets of other countries is always interesting to us. Across the street from the Mahane Yehuda Market, aka the Shuk, is a small shop called The World Spices. We found several spices that were new to us, including a Moroccan...
125, Herzog St, Azor, 5800100, Israel
Israelis developed the first practical surface drip irrigation emitter. Nowhere are the fruits (literally) of that work more evident than at the Mahane Yehuda Market in Jerusalem, Israel. Visit The Shuk, as the market is known to locals, on an...
Mahane Yehuda, Jerusalem, Israel
I went to Israel for two weeks and I came back at least 10 pounds heavier. My downfall began with a trip to Mahane Yehuda (the “Shuk”), Jerusalem’s oldest and largest market where I discovered Israeli cheese, halva, pastries, cookies, olives,...
