Time For Some Delicacies
Tel Aviv has some of the best cafes in the world. Below listed are the top 4 places you could explore for the breakfast of a lifetime:
- Saluf And Sons
Located in the Levinsky neighbourhood, Saluf and Sons primarily offers traditional Yemeni food. Bread variations inspire its cuisine and they form an integral part of Israeli breakfast culture. The extremely soft Saluf Pita will melt in your mouth and leave behind the taste of all the flavours that it can absorb.
Apart from bread variations, the Jachnun is yet another breakfast item that will give you nothing less than a foodgasm. The Jachnun is a hot pastry served with tomato salsa and slow roasted eggs. Saluf and Sons also offer a very remarkable Malawach, which is a thick pancake-like flatbread and has layers of puff pastry within. These are just some of the many items that one can try at Saluf and Sons. Some other honourable mentions include Harira, Malabi, and Lahoh.
Saluf and Sons is located at a mere 20-minute drive from the Colorbox Hotel in Tel Aviv, which is a sea-facing hotel near the Promenade. Now picture this – you get up to a breathtaking view of the sea. You get a cab, and within 20 minutes, you’re having one of the best breakfasts of your life. Feels nice, right?
- Lorenz and Mintz
Barely a 15-minute drive from Hotel Colorbox in Tel Aviv, and that too during rush hour, Lorenz and Mintz offers not only great food, but also a lovely garden and quiet interior space. And the best part? You don’t have to move away from the sea. Lorenz and Mintz is located near the Promenade and offers a variety of dishes.
Some of its best items for breakfast include Kubaneh, Green Shakshuka, Fisherman’s Croissant, and its own three seasonal tapas and a freshly baked bread. The Kubaneh is a traditional Yemenite Jewish bread which is served with tomato salsa and sour cream, coupled with hard-boiled eggs.
Fisherman’s croissant, on the other hand, is served with pickled lemons, potatoes, sour cream, and harissa, along with a soft-boiled egg. Even mentioning all of this can make anyone’s mouth water.
