If you don’t immediately think of exquisite cuisine when you think of Israel, you have probably never been there. Listen up, Foodies! It’s time to add this to your culinary destinations wish list. The prestigious “Saveur” magazine has recently named Tel Aviv one of the “Outstanding Culinary Destinations” in the small international cities category. The city is certainly in good company, being named alongside Florence, Italy and Lyon, France. With over 4,500 restaurants, it is clear that Tel Aviv takes food seriously. And Tel Aviv isn’t Israel’s only city receiving praise from Saveur. Jerusalem made it on their list of recommendations for its Mahne Yehuda market and El Al Airlines was hailed as the best in-flight wine selection. All of Israel Tours’s tours will give you ample opportunity to enjoy the delicious local cuisine. But fair warning… you might get hooked! So if you join one of our tours, don’t be surprised if you return home to find yourself searching on Yelp for Israeli restaurants in your area.
