If you’re into food, restaurants, new tastes and exciting adventures, Tel Aviv should definitely come across your culinary travel plans.
Israel, being a country of immigrants who came here on different times, from different countries and continents, has a unique kitchen; a blend of cultures, tastes, flavors and traditions, which, all together, created the Israeli taste.
The best way to get to know the genuine roots of the Israeli kitchen (assuming you don’t have relatives in here, who can cook you traditional food) is to wander around gay Tel Avivstreets and markets, and to taste everything you can.
First timers in Tel Aviv should start with tasting the popular street food Israel excels in. The first step you be, without a doubt, a warm, tasty, plate of Hummus. These mashed chickpeas blended with tahini and lemon juice, are a divine delicacy, with a high addictive risk. The pious eat it for breakfast, but you can eat it whenever you want. You can find hummus place everywhere you go, the city is packed with small homey Hummus restaurants, but the holder of the title “best hummus in the world” is Abu Hassan in Jaffa.
Hummus is often served with Falafel (another famous Israeli dish) – small fried balls of minced chickpeas, and with Pita bread. The entire Hummus meal is cheap, vegan, healthy and delicious.
