Food and restaurants in Tel Aviv-Yafo

Top restaurants

Market
“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! ”

“Shenkin Street is one of the most famous, happening streets in Tel Aviv. Considered to be a local attraction for over 20 years, the renovations through 2012 that have converted the street into a pedestrian paradise, have rejuvenated a street that really does epitomize the Tel Aviv spirit. And with it’s proximity to some of Tel Aviv’s other must-sees, such as Carmel Market and Nachalat Binyamin, you really should squeeze in a visit to this part of town. ”

“Kikar HaMedina Around the plaza, which was designed by architect Oscar Niemeyer (in cooperation with Israeli architects who planned for the existing residential buildings), there is a circular street, He Be'Iyar Street (Israeli Independence Day Street), connecting with two major streets: the north–south Weizmann Street, and the east–west Jabotinsky Street, as well as a number of small streets. The square itself is currently the site of a large, poorly maintained park, however various plans to demolish it and build large shopping centres and luxury towers have faltered due to local opposition. In the 1960s, circuses moved into the sandy square coming to perform. In the early 1970s extensive construction activity began around He BeIyar Street, which established a uniform design and luxury buildings. Many of these buildings have luxury stores and international designer shops located on the first floor, which have made it one of the most expensive areas in Tel Aviv. On 3 September, 2011, Kikar Hamedina was the gathering place for the 'March of the Million', the culminating demonstration of the 2011 Israeli social justice protests. The demonstration was the largest in Israel's history, with approximately 300,000 people marching on the square, and 100,000 demonstrating in other locations across Israel.”
