Unlike countries like America, Israel is not big into food trucks, pop-ups or the African style "Shisa-Nyama". (or sidewalk-barbeque)
But they are big into 'market' food stalls, which we love!!
*We did however find a friendly Orthodox man selling lovingly-prepared burgers from his portable food-stall in Eilat.
You can find his trailer on the parking lot just off Derech HaArava. If you head south from the airport, it is parked just before the Underwater Observatory Square, on the left.
But be prepared to take a seat at the counter, because he will not let you leave. He fusses over everyone and wants to make sure everything is perfectly in order and that you are enjoying every bite.
The juice we had there was also icy cold, which is wonderful in the Eilat-heat.
We will definitely visit his foodstall again!*
Bread Carts & Trays
Wonderful, fresh and crusty sesame loaves!
Buy your beigeleh from the street vendors in Jerusalem, or direct from the bakery in the Armenian Quarter and enjoy while doing sightseeing!
I took this photo in 1993 and it is still sold in the same way!
The marketplace, Old Akko
When visiting the beautiful and historical harbor city of Akko, one must eat at Hummus Said—considered by many the best hummus place in Israel.
You just have to try Israel's most famous food!
Another classic that you just have to try when in Israel is the Falafel.
Next to hummus with pita, this is the most economic meal the low-budget traveller can get!
Vendors abound, but the ones on the Bus Stations in all cities are definitely the best priced!
