One of Tel Aviv’s newest and coolest bar restaurants, Drama is a hidden gem in the heart of Tel Aviv on Nahalat Binyamin near the corner of Rothschild Boulevard. Spread across 3 floors, there’s a chilled indoor bar when you come in, head up a few stairs to their beautiful outdoor patio, and on the top floor is a dance floor! The outdoor patio is going to be one of the stars of the Tel Aviv summer – it’s like an oasis in the middle of the city. The food is delicious, the atmosphere chilled, and the drinks are refreshing

This sort of place is a rare find in Tel Aviv- a unique concept taken all the way and executed perfectly. The deli located in the lower floor of the two has everything you could possibly ask for: a charcuterie, a cheese section, a bakery, various hard-to-find international produce, and even a pizza section where you can find toppings, sauces, and pre-prepared bases. If you’re feeling lazy but are in the mood for a home cooked meal, you can even order their freshly made delicacies for pick up or delivery. They’re great to order in large quantities and a perfect way to impress guests with “your cooking”. In the restaurant you can sit downstairs on the street-facing patio, upstairs indoors, or on the terrace- our favourite. The atmosphere is always lively and busy, frequented by the who’s who of Friday brunch. As usual, the owners of Brasserie, Coffee Bar, Rothschild 12, Bakery, and Hotel Montefiore have hit the nail on the head. We recommend giving their bagel a try, it’s the best we have found in Tel Aviv (please let us know if you know of better!)

Eyal Shani has invented gourmet fast food! The menu offers pita with various fillings including minute steak (44 NIS), entrecôte with fried egg (37 NIS), and ratatouille (34 NIS). All the ingredients are fresh and of the highest standard, especially the delicious and soft pita. We also recommend ordering the DIVINE baked cauliflower (32 NIS) to share with whomever you’re with. Whilst you’re waiting for your name to be called, help yourself to the pita slices and delicious tehina and salsa which they leave for customers to nibble on (be careful not to fill up!) When a friend visits from abroad, we always make Miznon a priority- it is a great place to experience the loud and chaotic Israeli atmosphere along with some delicious Israeli-style food. As if it couldn’t get better, they now deliver too!

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.

A very small stall in the middle of the Carmel Market that specializes in a wonderful falafel. In front of the stand you will find some homemade sauces, spicy, amba, Yemenite Hillbe and more. The place has existed for over twenty years and jealously preserves its secret recipe for falafel. Cheap, delicious, satisfying and memorable.

HaKosem means “the magician”, so it’s no wonder they serve the best falafel in town! This is a great place to stop for a quick and good quality lunch. They serve really great schnitzel too, and the combination plates are great value for money. The staff are extremely friendly and the atmosphere is warm. Whilst waiting in line, they give you a hot, fresh falafel to taste- if that isn’t enough to entice you then I’m not sure what will

Pronto is one of the oldest Italian restaurants in Tel Aviv that serves creatively presented pasta, meat and fish dishes. The formal, yet friendly and unpretentious ambiance makes it a popular spot amongst a sophisticated crowd. Every Monday there is an additional menu with Vegan specials. If you are a truffle fan like us, you HAVE to order the simple “Tagliolini al Tartufo” (94 NIS), it’s absolutely mouth-watering! Warning: prices are high and portions are small. Be sure to check out the business lunch Sunday-Thursday.

The trusty R2M group has opened the new Herzl 16 around the corner. The new spot has a heavy-Asian twist to it featuring a lot of soy sauce, miso and glass noodles! Don’t panic. You can still get the familiar morning pastries, granola or croque madame that you all know and love, but from 12 noon the game changes. The lunch and dinner menus created by chef Guy Pollack, are Asian inspired. Friday and Saturday until 17:00 they offer an interesting Japanese inspired brunch which we are still waiting to try.

A new urban sandwich shop just popped up courtesy of chef Raz Rahav (of OCD) inside the Hotel Saul. This joint is kicking it classic with a Grab & Go style. The sandwiches are made from locally prepared raw materials as if they were to star on a plate of a luxury restaurant. For example, you'll find pork ham pastrami, grilled chicken breast and potato cream, and a macaroni and cheese sandwich that burns the Instagram feed.

In the busy King George street you will find plenty of street food variations, most of it is the Israeli kind, meaning the kind you can squeeze into a Pita, wrap it, get a napkin for the road and move on while eating or munching on it while standing up in the busy Falafel shops, this is Mifgash Osher (translation from Hebrew : Happiness joint). The place has only 3 dishes you can order, Falafel in Pita, Sabih in pita and a ‘friend’s dish’ which is labaneh, hummus , salad and fried eggplants, in one word, heaven. Prices are super low as street food is usually priced at $2-$5 , it’s all you need when exploring Israeli food.

On the corner of Hashmonaim and Ahad Ha’am sits a quirky little cafe that serves delicious healthy food and top notch coffee all for very reasonable prices. The majority of people (including us) are regulars who use the cafe as their office space, which creates an excellent working atmosphere. All the waiters/waitresses are amazing- welcoming, friendly and helpful! The menu is made up of delicious salads, sandwiches, and a breakfast tray that won’t disappoint. We recommend the “Breakfast Platter” or the “Mujadara Salad” followed by the best chocolate chip cookie you will ever have in your life!
