After many years of a disheartening lack of good — if any — kosher food in Tel Aviv, the tables have turned. Nowadays, White City residents are spoiled for choice, so we’ve rounded up the best, including off-the-beaten-path gems that we locals have been keeping all to ourselves, until now!
Lehem V’haverim (Bread and Friends)
A piece of Paris in central Tel Aviv. A chic brunch spot with the best baguettes in town, and great shakshuka to boot.
Bograshov Street 27
Low Key - Meat
An old school Yemenite grill spot with a loyal fanbase and a family feel. Though the prices are a little too high, the atmosphere more than makes up for it.
Rabbi Meir 26
This low key spot right by the Carmel Market serves excellent Persian dishes and hummus with a great selection of toppings — the meat options are our pick.
Nahalat Binyamin 2
Stray from the beaten path in the hipster Florentin neighbourhood. This bistro/bar serves up generous portions of flavourful “pub grub” fare. Service tends to be leisurely.
Shalma Road 44
Take in the gorgeous sea views at famed Israeli chef, Meir Adoni’s, venture into kosher, upscale dining. Largely Asian-inspired fish and dairy dishes, this is a place to treat yourself.
For meat lovers, pop downstairs to Lumina for a taste of Adoni’s take on modern Israeli bistro.
Located in the Carlton Hotel
Meat and Eat
If you’re looking for a straightforward hunk of well-cooked local meat, with a solid selection of sides, this is our pick. Head straight for the steaks.
Hangar 14, Tel Aviv Port
