Oved’s Sabich

TripAdvisor Page | 7 Sirkin Street, Giv'atayim, Israel (Near Tel Aviv)

A famous sabich stand in Israel. Maybe the most famous sabich stand in Israel. Israelis argue about who serves the best sabich, but they all agree that Oved serves an excellent one. If you like the heat, make sure to get yours spicy. For the uninitiated, a sabich is pita stuffed with fried eggplant, potatoes, hard-boiled egg, hummus, tahini, and whichever veggies and spices you’d like. In one bite you'll get a taste of dozens of different cuisines. Inexpensive, too.

Café Levinsky - Soda Gazoz

Website | Levinsky 41, Tel Aviv Israel | 0584488480

It's a tiny little stall that you could walk right by - but make sure not to. Here a man named Benny Briga serves fresh made sodas and seltzer waters. Benny used to be a mixologist and a bartender before taking his passion for crafting delicious beverages into the world of gourmet sodas. Benny makes soda in the style of the old soda fountains - but with a new Israeli understanding of global ingredients and flavors.

Julie’s Egyptian Restaurant

Malan Street 42, Tel Aviv, Israel | 03-5169334

Julie's is located in Carmel Market, just a few blocks from the center of the market and just above the Yemenite Quarter. There's no reservations, she serves only lunch, and she closes when she runs out of food for the day. Her Egyptian specialties however are worth it. Every day Julie can be found making her rounds in the market, shopping for fresh vegetables and creating the unique menu for the day. Her Egyptian specialties include artichokes, and Molokheyya, a green plant chopped and cooked with garlic and coriander sauce often served as a soup. You'll want to give Julie a big hug once you meet her, and you'll find that the perfect addition to her food is a dash of her wisdom.

Kachapuri

Information | 5 HaShikma St., corner of 6 HaEshkol St. in Mahane Yehuda Market

The general concept of hachapuri (hacha means cheese, and puri means dough) comes from Georgia, but it differs in taste and in style from region to region. This bakery offers a classic hachapuri, an acharuli--filled with cheese and topped with a fried egg--and a magaruli--yeast dough with a layer of cheese on top, crisped in the oven.

The proprietor, Tango, noticed that Israelis had embraced Turkish burekas and decided to enrich the city’s culinary offerings with the amazing taste of Georgian burekas. Hachapuria makes these pastries fresh, without margarine, just like Tango’s mom has been making them for years.
