Best Knafeh in Israel

Delicious food in Israel

Where you can get the best knafeh in Israel? Well before getting into that what is it?! So Kanafeh is a traditional Middle Eastern dessert made with shredded filo pastry; or alternatively fine semolina dough. All that soaked in sweet; sugar-based syrup, and typically layered with cheese, or with other ingredients such as clotted cream or nuts, depending on the region. Yum! The first place to start our hunt would be in Mahane Yehuda Food Market in Jerusalem! Now Jerusalemites are already used to the occasional new culinary surprises popping up in the Mahane Yehuda market. Such a new surprise opened a while back, called “City of David” and became a hit! Moreover, this delicious dish comes in a personal pan on which Kadayif hairs are sprinkled and a special cheese mix is ​​placed on it.


Best Knafeh in Israel Can Also Be Found in TLV!

So another great option for the best Knafeh in Israel is in Tel Aviv. One of the most well-known preparations of knafeh is ‘Knafeh Nabulsiyeh’ originating from the Palestinian city of Nablus, and is the most representative and iconic Palestinian dessert.
