Israel Israeli

It was my first time there last night, but I have to say, if you want an authentic Israeli experience, go to Dr Shakshuka (in this clip the good Dr shows us how to make shakshuka) in Yafo. Just avoid the Thursday night Flea Market experience if you can during July, because the traffic is a bleedin' 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 to wrap up your experience, there's nothing like one of these crossing the road in front of you to make you feel warm and safe...yes, a robot on its way to check a suspicious package down the road...
