Tel Aviv’s Bakery Serves Up Deep-Fried Tradition

We love Israel during the Hanukkah season! Check out some of the best spots, according to writers at Israel21c, to get yourself a holiday doughnut, or sufganiyot, which is consumed in Israel and around the world during the Jewish Festival of Lights!

Hanukkah starts tonight and sufganiyah season has been in full swing for the past several weeks. With an estimated 24 million of these deep-fried, jelly-filled holiday treats consumed in Israel each year, it’s no surprise that the dash for donuts starts long before the eight-day Festival of Lights begins. . .

Among the most popular are those made by the Roladin chain (67 branches, most of them kosher). This year, Roladin offers 12 flavors filled with anything from vanilla-flavored mascarpone to mango-pineapple cream. Another favorite is English Cake, with 14 kosher branches and a menu of 14 sufganiyah varieties this year including Napoleon and Oreo cheese.
