If you are on planning to visit Israel, then you must go through this food tour by Mark Wiens

Abu Hassan –

Located in a peaceful area of Jaffa, this restaurant is always packed and busy full of people hungry for hummus, ful, and musabaha. it’s truly a legendary place and the hummus was of the sticky and smooth variety. I think my favourite thing was the musabaha, like hummus, but with whole chickpeas. They also offer a mix of hummus, ful, and musabaha all in a single bowl which is excellent. Total price – 72 ILS ($20.95)

Sabich Tchernichovsky –

An Iraqi Jewish food in Israel, sabich is a pita filled with eggplant and hard-boiled eggs, and a selection of salad and condiments. David says that there’s no doubt Sabich Tchernichovsky makes the best sabich in Israel, and I was very impressed. He assembled the pita so slowly and perfectly, adding layer upon layer of eggplant, egg, and salad. It was truly one of the best vegetarian (but with egg) sandwiches I’ve ever had. Price – 21 ILS ($5.87)

Falafel Johnny Benin –

Next to Sabich Tchernichovsky, is Falafel Johnny Benin, a legendary Tel Aviv falafel hole in the wall restaurant. I ordered a half of a falafel sandwich, with salad and tahini. It was delicious and freshly cooked. Half falafel pita – 9 ILS ($2.51)

Carmel Market, Tel Aviv –

Carmel Market is one of the most well-known of all open-air flea markets in Tel Aviv. You’ll find everything there, including a nice food section. HaBasta Restaurant – Located on a side street of Carmel Market, is HaBasta, a gourmet market fresh restaurant. They served us some very fresh and interesting dishes. The crab was delicious, and the fried veal brain was amazing, but I especially loved the cherry salad. Total price – 400 ILS ($111.72)

Pronto Restaurant –

Owned by the renowned Chef David Frankel, Pronto is a refined Israeli Italian and Mediterranean restaurant. The food was extremely high quality, and the flavours were very subtle and delicious. We were planning to pay for our meal, but David knows the chef very well, and Chef David wouldn’t allow us to pay. Delicious high-end gourmet food.

Jasmino, Tel Aviv –

This was probably my favourite food on this entire Israeli food tour of Tel Aviv, Jasmino, specializing in grilled meat pita. The owner, another extremely kind man, ordered me the sweetbreads pita, grilled thymus and bottom part of lamb throat glands, with salad and tahini. It was extraordinary. My kind of place. Price – 28 ILS ($7.82) And that completed our Tel Aviv food tour! –
