some of the best falafel. Photo by josh.ev9/Flickr.com Street stalls in Tel
Aviv are the best places to try authentic vegetarian delights. Falafel is
widely considered to be the unofficial national dish of Israel. Sabich (a pita
stuffed with fried eggplant, egg, and pickled cabbage) is originally an Iraqi
dish but is fast becoming a local favorite. You'll find that in general, the
street food is of good quality and is often kosher, too. Where to Eat: Along
Ibn Gvirol Street, you can find dozens of food stands that serve falafel and
shawarmas. Head to Frishman Street or the neighboring town of Ramat Gan for the
best sabich. Although it's not technically a food stall, the street-side
Abulafia Arab bakery in the port area of Jaffa doles out freshly baked savory
pastries and pitas late at night. How Much: Six falafel balls in a pita (with
as many dips and salad that can fit) costs about 15 Israeli new sheqel ($3.85).
A chicken shawarma is about 30 Israeli new sheqel ($7.70).
