Tel Aviv Restaurants: 5 Hot Spots for Ice Cream, Burgers and More

tel aviv restaurants

I just got back from a week in Tel Aviv with my boyfriend where we visited some incredible foodie hot spots. If you’re planning a trip to Israel, you might want to check these Tel Aviv restaurants out!

Favourite Tel Aviv Restaurants

Acai Bowl and Froyo: Tamara

This is where we had our first meal when we arrived in Tel Aviv. I’m an acai bowl lover and I had no idea that we could find these bowls of goodness in Israel. I was so happy when we found Tamara right by our hotel.

For around £7 ($9) you have a generous bowl with your choice of toppings. They have a large selection of fresh and dried fruits, seeds, granola and sauces. Their frozen yogurt is also really nice but I definitely preferred the acai bowl.

Ice Cream: Otello

If ice cream is your favourite holiday treat, you have to go to Otello Their ice cream is truly delicious and they serve really big scoops. As you can see in the picture, the 3 flavour cup was pretty big and cost only £5 ($6.5)!

Choosing from all the yummy flavours was a bit of a struggle. My favourite were white chocolate, salted caramel and cookies&cream.
You can also add white or milk chocolate sauce at no extra cost.

All Day Breakfast: Benedict

Benedict is probably one of the most popular Tel Aviv restaurants. There are several spots in the city. The menu offers a wide selection of egg dishes, pancakes, French toast…

Most items come with a warm bread basket. We visited the place twice and we loved the Eggs Benedict with salmon, the blueberry pancakes and the Vegan breakfast (it’s a chickpea pancake served with eggplant, tahini and hummus spreads as well as a small salad and the beverage of your choice).

The place is not the cheapest but the service and the food are excellent. Count around £20 ($26) per person

Burger: The Little Burger Shop

The Little Burger Shop is one of the numerous cozy little spots with cool atmosphere that you’ll find in Tel Aviv. You can choose between 3 different burgers (I went for the veggie option with Portobello mushroom) and add 3 toppings (greens, cheese, onions…).

Depending on the burger the price goes from £9 to £14 ($12 to $18). I thought it was good value for money considering the quality and the size of the burger.

Street Food, Fruits, Pastries…: Carmel Market

The Carmel market is definitely worth a visit even if you’re not planning on buying any food. But if you get hungry you’ll have plenty of options there. You can get some local street food such as a shawarma or buy bread, pastries, dried fruits and even spices to bring back home.

After a week of “holiday eating” I am now getting back on track and I’ve shared my top 5 tips to bounce back after vacation 🙂
