The Shuk

There is so much to love about the food of Israel. A tiny country full of possibilities. Fresh falafel fills the streets with endless salads lining the counters. As you walk down the street you can smell freshly baked bread and oversized sesame seed bagels covered with Za’aatar spice. It is jam-packed with the quaintness of small mom and pop restaurants on every corner. But what exactly is the secret to Israel’s good food? The answer is, it's made with love from Israel!

We asked our loyal readers to help us find the best versions of everything Israel has to offer. We asked the people of Israel. We asked our friends. We asked tour guides. We asked foodies... And now the results are in! Find out which food establishment won in our weekly JOY of ISRAEL series.
