Nazareth is absolutely stunning. It's an Arab city in northern Israel that a lot of tourists sadly skip (or only visit for a day trip). I've been here for two nights and could probably stay for another two!

  • gmr83I think it's great that you're going off the beaten path of the average tourist and tour groups... Visiting the holy lands will always be a dream of mine.
  • stavvaismanAdam, make sure you try knafeh there- Nazareth has the best in Israel.
  • travelsofadamThanks @stavvaisman - great tip! I had a small taste this afternoon and tried to find some more this evening as well but I got lazy... :)
  • stavvaismanThe best I've found is where the church and mosque meet- there is a little shouq near then the roundabout- and you can walk up and down the block, sampling the best knafeh, kadaif, baklawa, and more. Enjoy yourself! If you need more Israel recs, I'll be happy to send you more info- thoroughly enjoy your travels!
  • travelsofadamThanks @stavvaisman!! I'm spending the next few nights in Jerusalem. What are your favorite foodie places there? I've been before but it's been a while!
  • stavvaismanJerusalem recs: Machneyuda, Eucalyptus, Angel Bakery. Favorite hummus joints: Abu Shukri and Ta'ami. Make sure to hit the Machaneh Yehuda Shouq and visit Chatzot while there for "yerushalayim me'orav" - Jerusalem mixed grill. Also, the path from City of David to Holy Sepulchre has great Arabic food joints that are worthwhile- find some sabich (fried/breaded eggplant). I know Tel Aviv even better, so let me know when you head there.
  • sanja_jj@stavvaisman Hi. What are the places that you recommend in Tel Aviv? :)
  • stavvaisman@lilu0911 Miznon is now my favorite pita joint in the world, bar none. Aboulafia bakery for bourekas, shouq ha'carmel for candy, fruit, halvah and the like- at the top of the shouq, walk across the street to the right, and within 3 stores is my favorite falafel/schwarma spot. Get a laffa with schwarma and all the fixins, and either walk back to sit down in front of the shouq or walk halfway up the block to eat in the park. Other spots: tsipora, shipudei hatikvah (get pargit- spring chicken, best I've had in the world), nanushka for Georgian food, Yemenite quarter, hummus mashawa, hummus said, yahaloma, hakosem, my favorite in all of Israel- manta ray. That's a good start!
  • travelsofadamDude @stavvaisman you're a star! The Yemenite quarter is really cool. I lived in Tel Aviv for 4 months - awesome selections!
  • stavvaisman@travelsofadam what were your favorite spots? I'm craving some jachnoon and melawach!
  • sanja_jj@stavvaisman Thank you very much for all the info :)👍
  • stavvaisman@lilu0911 my pleasure!
