“Eating out can be very pricey but if you know some insiders’ places, it can be even cheaper than buying products in grocery stores. Tel Aviv is well known for its amazing street food. If you’re traveling to Tel Aviv, eating hummus has to be on your must-do list. I wanna tell you about a hummus place I discovered last summer in the heart of Shuk HaCarmel – “Hummus Magen David”. Once you’ve tried Magen David hummus, you would never compromise for industrially made hummus in supermarkets again. This place is always busy and you have to wait in line for a while but it’s worth it. All tables are shared, so feel free to grab a seat with strangers.”

Seafood Restaurant

“Goocha is a seafood restaurant with a reputation for fresh food at a reasonable price. The restaurant’s upbeat atmosphere is perfectly matched to its location on the busy Dizengoff Street. Goocha is popular among Tel Aviv locals, so you may have to indulge in some window shopping while you wait for a table! Along with various fish and shrimp entrees, the menu includes burgers and pasta, so everyone can find the meal they enjoy. For dessert, try the Belgium waffle with caramelized bananas, a treat you won’t regret! ”

Café

“A tasty retreat from the Tel Aviv bustle. Charming, cozy, and quirky, Café Puaa is a Jaffa neighborhood staple. Located in the heart of Jaffa’s flea market, this iconic café feels like a retro living room. Its colorful carpets, antique ornaments and comfy couches give the restaurant a homey, authentic feel. Plus, Puaa embodies the spirit of its flea market surroundings, whereby every piece of furniture is for sale! But, what makes Puaa truly special are its wholesome, unique Mediterranean dishes. Treat yourself to their famous curried pumpkin dumplings, their hearty moussaka with quinoa and feta cheese or their all-day breakfast (yep, you heard me right). Each dish is creative and packs a flavourful punch - it’s no wonder Puaa’s loyal customers leave in good spirits, even when the weather is grey.”
