Best Food Tour in Tel Aviv

best places to eat in Israel

Are you ready for the best food Tour in Tel Aviv? So here we are exploring the food capital of Israel – Tel Aviv. Where should we start our tour today? I think the best location to start our tour is the Carmel Food Market.

What I like about the Carmel Market is you can feel the local vibe and brush with the locals. When you tour around the Holy Land you kind of isolated and don’t get the chance to mingle. In the Carmel Market, I promise you will get an up-close look at Israeli society and culture.

Our first stop in the Market would be Panda Pita. One of my favorite places to get some local food for sure. What do they offer there? Well, Panda Pits is where high cuisine meets pita bread. For a decade they have been experimenting with food; putting an emphasis on quality and fresh ingredients; a decade that the owner is traveling the world; trying to get inspiration and learning with an endless love of food and for people. For sure my one number one stop in my best Tel Aviv food tour.

Best Food Tour in Tel Aviv: Meet the Best Arais Sandwich Ever!

Our next stop would be as well in the Carmel Food Market at one of the best restaurants I know in the area. In other words, I refer to M25. They serve one of the dishes I am addicted to it! And that’s the Lebanese meat-stuffed pita or in one word – Arais. A dish derived from Levantine cuisine. The dish is common in the Middle East, especially in Syria, Jordan, and Lebanon. The dish is based on a fat-smeared pita stuffed with minced meat.
