If you’re looking for an authentic Israeli experience, and expecting nothing more than cheap and cheerful food, try Dr Shakshuka in Yafo, just down the road from the must-see Flea Market. Shakshuka is a dish of eggs cooked in a savory tomato and spicy sauce. You can eat it straight out of the frying pan, on a plate or in a pitah. It’s delish!
If you’re visiting over the summer months, in particular July, avoid the Thursday night Flea Market experience if you can, because the traffic is a nightmare. And don’t stay after 1am, because the waiters start wailing Greek lullabies into the microphone…not sure if that’s the “right you lot, we’re closing” signal, or they are genuinely trying to woo the crowd…but the food is great, and cheap.
And don’t blame us if you get addicted to shakshuka!
Address: 3 Beit Eshel St., Yafo
