Shwarma, falafel, sabich, hummus, shakshuka, malabi, bourekas, kyurtosh … street food in Israel is famous worldwide, and the mouth-watering options are countless.
There’s no better place to sample street food than in Jaffa, where food stalls and small restaurants line up side-by-side, waiting to serve the next hungry passerby.
“We’re not conservative about food. We like to try different things. People love quick and informal bites, and that’s why I think street food is flourishing,” says chef Janna Gur, author of The New Book of Israeli Food.
