In no particular order…

Liliyot, 4 Weizman Street

Liliyot Tel Aviv

A great, long-standing kosher restaurant in Tel Aviv, with a Mediterranean menu influenced heavily by the Arab kitchen. Liliyot (also known as Lilith) has an interesting, varied menu without violating its kosher responsibility. Liliyot also has a social agenda, helping kids at risk with jobs in the kitchen.

Meatos, 33 Shaul HaMelech

Meatos Tel Aviv

As you might have guessed from the name, this Tel Aviv restaurant has some excellent (yet pricey) meat dishes. Located in a more upmarket part of town (next to the Tel Aviv Art Museum), this restaurant has kosher carnivores often salivating, especially about steaks that are hard to beat in other kosher eateries…

Uno, 2 Weizman Street

Uno Tel Aviv

If you love your Italian, then Uno is a great kosher option in Tel Aviv. There is a wide range of pizzas, and pastas, and salads etc. The Ravioli starters are renowned, plus don’t miss the desserts. The service is also known to be friendly and very efficient, and the restaurant (located on the second floor) has a nice atmosphere. The menu is not too expensive.

Deca, 10 HaTassiyah Street

Deca Tel AvivA more pricey fish restaurant, located in downtown Tel Aviv. Many have mentioned the price, but most seem to have felt it was very much worth it!

    Badulina at the port closed. Also, I would add 2C, the meat restaurant at the top of Azrieli to the list. It’s good for tourists and special occasions.

    Editor’s Honorable Mentions (With the Help of God)

    Yemen, Yemen, Yemen
    We can’t say enough about all of the incredible mom & pop little eateries in the Yemenite Quarter (Kerem HaTemanim). Please just meander through the maze of small streets, and let your nose be your guide. Don’t leave town without spooning a Yemenite meat soup; the experience and broth is luxurious. No need to ask what part of the cow the mixed offerings come from, just roll it into traditional spongy flat bread, any time of year, but most are open only for lunch.

    Killer soups at these chill spots:
    Shimon Melekh Hamarakim, Yihye Kapah 28
    Rina and Zecharia, HaKovshim 22
    Ozeri Brothers, Yihye Kapah 30

    Tranquila
    If we didn’t tell you it was Kosher, you wouldn’t have known. This place is a very cool day-time lunch joint, and perfect 2nd date evening option for “a bottle of red, bottle of white…in our Italian restaurant”.
    Mid, Italian, Dairy, Mikveh Yisrael 1, 03-685-0002

    Blackout
    You will never see how delicious their fish & pasta offerings are. Your taste-buds and sense of smell will have to do all the work as this notable eatery is all in the dark, literally. Run by the incredible non-profit Nalaga’at, all the waiters are deaf/blind, and you can enjoy dinner by itself or make an entire evening out of it by also attending one of Nalaga’at Theater’s unique productions.
    Fancy, Fish/Pasta, Dairy, Yafo Namal, 053-809-4758

    Bakery 29
    Not only is this cafe a fantastic day-time lunch meeting option, order a lot because all profits of this incredible venture goes towards the non-profit organization, Friends of the IDF, supporting our noble soldiers who deserve our constant gratitude and prayers.
    Cafe, Dairy, Ahad Ha’am 29, 03-560-2020

    Shmulik Cohen
    Who cares about clogged arteries when going back in time to taste how the Yidden of Eastern Europe indulged in chicken fat & more chicken fat. Kishke, tongue, chulent, herring, chicken soup, chopped liver, gefillite fish, kreplach, grivalach, and if you don’t know what p’tcha is, order it anyway at this fourth generation owned pillar of Tel Aviv.
    Mid, Eastern European, Meat, Herzl 146, 03-681-0222

    Frishman Sabich
    If you haven’t indulged in this Iraqi pita stuffed classic, you have missed the whole point. It would be like coming to Jerusalem without visiting The Kotel. Don’t let the long lines deter you, they move fast and are a testament to the freshest exotic mix of veggies, sauces, spices, (& we recommend cheese) that your mouth can handle.
    Iraqi, Dairy, Frishman 42, 054-734-0950

    Odelia
    Not known for being a burger joint, this chill Moroccan focused menu also has one of the best hamburgers in town. If you are around Ben Yehuda/Gordon, stop by to play some Shesh Besh on a board kept over the microwave in back, donated by our Kosher Tel Aviv founder. Free cafe shachor and tea nana with your meal to boot.
    Chill, Moroccan, Meat, Ben Yehuda 89, 03-522-4222

    Dr. Shashuka’s Shwarma
    This little alley way eatery is tucked away besides Old Yafo’s clock tower and boasts one of the best lamb shwarmas in town. We like it with extra onion and a smidge (or more) of extra lamb fat in the mix.
    Israeli, Meat, Alley next to Beit Eshel 3, 03-518-6560

    The 11th Floor
    Considered by many as the most serious high-quality steak, goose liver & sushi fine dining experiences in Israel thanks to Chef Eitan Mizrahi. That being said, you will pay a lot for the privilege, but the killer view is free.
    Fancy, Sushi/Steak, Meat, Azrieli Towers, 03-777-4067

    Meat & Wine
    Herzliya Pituach isn’t Tel Aviv, but it’s darn close, and this classy place has some of the best steak & ribs in the country.
    Fancy, Steak, Meat, Shenkar 16, Herzliya, 09-956-7006

    Zota Pizza
    Pay by weight at this new pizza joint on Dizengoff. Enjoy the high quality squares with a wide range of toppings offered, including goat cheese & smoked salmon.
    Pizza, Dairy, Dizengoff 177, 03-522-2305

    Falafel Shlomo & Sons
    Walking home from the beach? Come by this classic kiosk no-frills fresh-to-order falafel joint considered one of the best in town. Take all the fixings.
    Israeli, Dairy, Kiosk, Nordou & Ben Yehuda

    Saar
    Forget milk & honey, this wine bar/shop celebrates the Land of Israel by offering up one of its greatest assets, fine wine. Chill on the plush couches and L’Chaim, L’Yai’in, L’Chaim.
    Wine Bar, Ben Yehuda 126, 03-550-1901

    Shipudim
    Anything on a skewer (shipud) in Shechunat HaTikva, a tucked away neighborhood down South in “the Other Tel Aviv”. Our editor is incredibly fond of grilled lamb fat, and these places do it best. These gleaming buttery charred cubes on a stick are pure happiness.

    White City Shabbat
    Halacha is vast, The Talmud is long, and The Torah is infinite. Thus just let us boil down all of Judaism for you; A Jew must eat a lot on Shabbos. Let our non-profit, celebrating Jewish Life in Tel Aviv, connect you with the incredibly warm, welcoming & relaxing Jewish community in the White City. Check out http://www.WhiteCityShabbat.com
