5 top restaurants when you visit Israel.

Israeli cuisine, from street falafels to freshly caught fish from the Mediterranean, to dishes from internationally renowned chefs, all have one thing in common: freshness. Israeli cuisine reflects its surroundings (for example, tahini with date syrup). Travelers from Tel Aviv or Jerusalem rarely take refreshing snacks home.


Uri Buri

Address: Ha-Hagana Street, Acre, Israel

Tel: +972 4-955-2212

Website: http://www.uriburi.co.il/

Located in the stone otomaner building next to the old lighthouse in Akko Harbour, Uri Buri has been serving high-quality seafood for more than 30 years including soy sauce salmon sashimi and wasabi sorbet and Thai fish soup with coconut milk and basil leaves. Owner and chef Uri Jeremias has a long-term relationship with the sea: his first two jobs were diver and fisherman. Jeremias also owns the nearby Efendi Hotel as well as ice cream parlor of the Uli Buri Street. You can stroll around for desserts and try some unique flavors such as dates, cinnamon and roses.


Falafel Hakosem

Address: Shlomo ha-Melekh St 1, Tel Aviv-Yafo, Israel

Tel: +972 3-525-2033

Website: http://www.falafelhakosem.com/#secondPage

Falafel can be found in almost every corner of Tel Aviv, but Hakosem, which means "magician", is considered the best supplier of delicious fried chickpea balls. Hakosem opened in 2001 and is clean, colorful and fun at any time of the day, with locals and tourists everywhere, ready to try their signature green falafel. Another star dish is homemade hummus, which is always cooked fresh. This dish comes with fresh flatbread, onion, cucumber, pepper, garlic and lemon sauce. Other Israeli staples are also served, such as kebabs, shakshuka (eggs boiled in hot sauce with tomatoes, onions, peppers, garlic and spices), sabich (eggplant lava), lettuce and chicken cutlets.


Cafe Puaa

Rabbi Yohanan St 8, Tel Aviv-Yafo, Israel

Tel: +972 3-682-3821

Every time you go to the Jaffa flea market, make sure to stop for a coffee or snack at the Pua restaurant. This space is like the vintage apartment, filled with selected furniture and decorations from the antique shop below. In addition to the eclectic atmosphere and design, Pua also offers high-quality, simple and delicious food. Israeli breakfast is served all day (a big advantage for those who like a balanced Mediterranean breakfast), and the menu changes according to the owner’s request. Make sure that every day is beautiful. I recommend booking in advance (if possible) or waiting patiently as there are many people here.


DR. Shakshuka

Beit Eshel St 3, Tel Aviv-Yafo, Israel

Tel: +972 3-518-6560

Website: https://www.doctorshakshuka.co.il/

If you are wandering around Jaffa, dont forget to visit one of the oldest settlements in the world Dr. Shakshuka. Its typical dish is Itshakshuka, which is a mixture of poached eggs, tomatoes, onions, cumin, and peppers. He calls himself Dr. Shakshuka (pictured) is a Libyan Jew. He stands on a pedestal with several burners in front of him, just like a DJ in a restaurant.


Bader's Coffee World

Marco Polo St 25, Acre, Israel

In the single-lane indoor Turkish bazaar, a beautiful market in the old town, looks more modern than the open-air bazaar, and there are a few stalls worth a stopover. This is one: A cup or two of uplifting, hazy Turkish coffee will cheer you up, while Ottoman-style tableware adds to the atmosphere.
