Eat Where The Hipsters Eat In Tel Aviv...

Edited by Evelyn Hannon

Israeli Journeywoman Andrea Rosen is, by day, the Head of Development for EatWith.com), a global community that lets you enjoy authentic and intimate dining experiences in people's homes. By night she's a DJ in some of Tel Aviv's best music venues bridging together culture and innovation with a passion for tech, music and food. Andrea can be reached at: andrea@eatwith.com. We asked Andrea to tell us where she and her hipster pals eat in Tel Aviv. There are her eight juicy suggestions...

Dalida - this special restaurant near Levinsky market is a hidden gem. Not a jam packed area, but the place is styled to perfection, Middle Eastern music over the speakers, and of course food to die for. But the interesting part is the service. The staff brings their own homemade vodka to you for a shot every once in awhile. Reserve a place in the garden - you won't regret it. Website: dalidatlv.co.il
HaHalutzim 3 - Named after it's address, this restaurant is a modest, small hole in the wall with gems on a plate. The owners are as friendly as it comes and the menu is a creative constantly changing array of fresh and flavorful dishes. For food, it has to be my favorite in the city. $$$ splurge Website: www.halutzim3.com
Miznon & Port Said - Israeli celebrity chef, Eyal Shani created gems with these two eating spots. Miznon's street food atmosphere is so rich in flavor that it's a MUST (located at 13 King George). Port Said (Har Sinai 5) is a sit down restaurant that combines the best things in this world: fresh vegetables and ingredients with vinyls (i.e. their record collection). The atmosphere is the outside space where you will have a hard time finding an empty seat. Go early. Recommended around 8-9pm, or Friday early afternoons to relax. Website: facebook.com/Port-Said
Wineberg - Wineberg is a just a cool place. And the food is uber creative which always has a foodie like me happy. Between their incredible eggplant cream (so addictive!) to their beetroot gnocchi, it's impossible to choose just one dish. Go with friends who like to share so you can try everything. Website: wineberg.rest.co.il/menu?menuId=823281
Vitrina - Best burgers in the Middle East by far. Burgers are rich with carmelized onions and blue cheese. They also come with a combination of sweet potato and regular french fries coated with lemon zest. Did I mention they also make their own beetroot ketchup? Highly recommended to sit at the bar. The music will always be pumping and great and the atmosphere infectious. Address: Ibn Gabirol St 54
Abu Hassan - In Israel hummus is life and every Israeli will argue who serves the best one. By far my fave is Abu Hassan. It's been in the family so long. They have three branches all within seconds from each other, but the best is the original one on HaDolfin street and then two right across the street from each other on Shivtei Yisrael. It's the israeli version of brunch. Go before noon to escape long lines. Don't expect to sit there after your meal - get in and get out, it's a fast paced meal. Order the Masabacha (a gourmet version of hummus) - you won't be sorry!
La Shuk - Mediterranean atmosphere and dishes with an edge. Food is just GOOD. every dish. My suggestion is the black risotto, with many shared smaller dishes with friends. Website: www.lashuk.rest-e.co.il/
Eat with locals in Tel Aviv - Passionate home cooks create unique and authentic dining experiences served around their communal table. Originated in Tel Aviv, this website platform lists alternative dining experiences with incredibly creative cooks. Eat gourmet and creative meals here in the homes of Tel Avivians or other cities you travel to. Expect to be super full, so make sure you wear stretch pants...and expect the alcohol to be flowing. But note: you will need to register for these meals in advance - not for the spontaneously inclined. Website: EatWith.com

Small neighbourhood hotel in Tel Aviv...

building_3I just spent two nights at the small (ish) family owned, 3-star Hotel Gilgal in Tel Aviv. It's located on a small, interesting street just five minutes from the Mediterranean Sea. The rooms are well appointed and spotless. Bathrooms are modern and efficient. Guests enjoy free WIFI and special beach towels are handed out at reception should you plan a day at the shore. Full and filling Israeli breakfasts are served in their rooftop restaurant and best of all there is a lovely, welcoming casual ambiance about this whole place. I loved their complimentary tea and coffee station situated in the ground floor lounge. Home baked cookies were always available. Bonus: It is a 10 minute walk to the Carmel Market and two minutes from a sweet cafe at the corner. Highly recommended. Tell them Journeywoman sent you:) Website: HotelGilgal.com
