#FoodTravelSeries Ep.1: A Taste of Israel

Shakshuka a dish of eggs poached in a sauce of tomatoes. It’s a simple and healthy dish to make for breakfast or brunch. ⠀


Avital takes us to Israel with a classic dish, Shakshuka. She is a 26 year old student from Tel Aviv, Israel who runs a local business in Tel Aviv called D-TLV Pub Crawl which has received praises from Forbes and TVN TV channel.

Avital and her team run pub crawls, organise events & activities and create tailor made experiences for visitors and locals. Do check them out if want to experience the Tel Aviv vibe and night life.

Avital is also a local tour guide and I had the pleasure of doing a tour with her in Tel Aviv. She drove my friend and I around the city and showed us the best local spots! We strolled through one of the oldest inhabited places in the world, Jaffa city, hearing the biblical stories of Jonah and the Whale, Solomon, and Peter.⠀

As an avid traveller, she loves to check out the places that characterize the destination, have fun and explore the nightlife scene. Avital is a big foodie and recommends grabbing street food at Jasmino, and try Jachnun (Jewish Yemen dish), a delicious dish that doesn’t get enough recognition.⠀
