Discover the tastes of Israel in the new Netflix travel show hosted by Phil Rosenthal, creator of the American TV series “Everybody Loves Raymond.”

Writers at Israel21c tell us more:

The series, titled “Somebody Feed Phil,” encourages people to travel by depicting mouthwatering local delicacies. “If you want to know what Israel’s really like, you have to come here,” Rosenthal says at one point during the Tel Aviv-focused episode.

Rosenthal’s tour of Tel Aviv begins at Dr. Shakshuka, a famous shakshuka restaurant housed in a 250-year-old building in Jaffa. For those unfamiliar with shakshuka – the traditional Middle Eastern dish of eggs poached in a sauce of tomatoes, chili peppers, onions and spices – Rosenthal explains it as “one of the best breakfasts you’ll ever have.”

To help him along his food journey, Rosenthal is joined by some of Israel’s biggest food personalities. Israeli-born chef and award-winning Philadelphia restaurateur Michael Solomonov takes him to one of Tel Aviv’s most popular hummus spots, Abu Hassan, where Rosenthal is seemingly in awe of every bite. The duo also chows down on street-food like shawarma and sabich, an Israeli-Iraqi fried eggplant sandwich.
