Best Street food in Tel Aviv according to Mendeli
Tel Aviv’s outdoor lifestyle fuels an always busy, rich and tasty street food industry. The good weather almost all year round is one element of this happy equation, as it is the eclectic population of the city, resulting in very distinct types of food.

When chefs open street food joints…
Celebrity chef Eyal Shani opened Miznon and crowds swarm to this high-end venue with countless pita-stuffing options, from lush roasted vegetables to stakes and eggs— not to mention his much-talked-about whole roasted cauliflower.

Yemenite gachnun, simple and delicious
Gachnun is a doughy delicacy, a fixture in Yemenite homes on Saturday mornings. This labor-intensive breakfast treat is rolled out by hand (with butter or margarine brushed in between the folds and rolls) and cooked overnight. It usually comes with grated tomatoes, chilbeh (fenugreek paste), zchug (a local hot sauce), and a roasted egg.

When eggs meet vegetables and a party of species
Shakshuka sounds like a dance but it is really a very special food. Eaten for breakfast, brunch, or even a light dinner, this dish of poached eggs in a spicy, stewed tomato sauce with all sorts of vegetables and combinations is a winner. It can be eaten in pita or scooped up with crusty bread. A place to taste a great one: Shakshuka, 3 Simtat Hacarmel.
Eggplant and more in a pita
Sabich is a breakfast dish arrived from Iraq in the 1950s. Now-a-days it became lunch, dinner or snack, and it is irresistible: the fluffy pitas filled with deep-fried eggplant slices, fresh tomato and cucumber salad, browned hard-boiled eggs, and boiled potatoes. And in Sabich Frishman you can taste one of the bests in town.
