Hummus Birthright Israel

Hummus – You can’t beat the smooth, flavorful and delicious hummus from Abu Gosh. The main location on Dizengoff 85, is full most days of the week but if you want the complete Israeli experience, visit this restaurant on Friday afternoon and learn how to clean your plate with your last piece of pita! And if you’re in Jaffa, stop by arguably the best local humus joint in this part of town, Abu Hassan. Be sure to order raw onion (trust us!) with your hummus. You can thank us later.

Late Night Eats - Come to Tel Aviv and enjoy the benefits of the city that never sleeps with your late night shawarma from Dabush (open until 4am!), on the corner of Kikar Rabin and Frishman or your 24-hour breakfast from Benedict. Dabush offers you the freshest laffa and pita breads, with endless stuffing options to accompany your shawarma. Benedict offers you diner-style breakfast around the clock.

Tamara Juices – Although not a specialty to Israel per se, this fruit juice destination has become just that – a destination not to be missed especially in the sweltering summer months. The lines are long but the juice makers work quickly, so you never have to wait more than a couple of minutes for your refreshing, natural and pure fruit drink. Working with seasonal fruits only, your drink is guaranteed to be sweet and mouth-watering. Stand on Ben Gurion Boulevard with Tel Avivians, and you’ll feel like a native hanging out with your fresh fruit juice drink!

Nanuchka– Dance on the bar, enjoy fantastic cocktails and order your perfect vegan dish at Nanuchka, without feeling like the odd one out! The menu promises the most delicious dishes that are unique and interesting, with an Eastern European twist. And the restaurant/bar promises a one-of-a-kind atmosphere that will leave you wanting to come back next week (even for non-vegan guests)!

Delicious Israel Tour of Levinsky Market – Levinsky Market is definitely Tel Aviv’s lesser known shuk (market), but it shouldn’t be! Explore this lively destination with Delicious Israel on a two hour tour and experience all of the amazing culinary hidden gems that you most likely would have missed otherwise. You’ll taste from the city’s best burkeas (stuffed filo pastries), delicacies at Yom Tov Deli, malabi (rose water flavored pudding), and more. You can take home fabulous culinary souvenirs as well including freshly ground spices that the city’s best chefs use in their kitchens.
