Ultimate Guide to Eating Your Way Through Jaffa

The ancient port city of Jaffa is filled with great food – from new restaurants to ones that have been around for years – and our friends at Israel21c share the best places to visit on your next trip to this biblical city.

Check out number one on their list:

1.       Starting point: The famous Jaffa Clock Tower & Dr. Shakshuka (kosher), 3 Beit Eshel Street

Start your Jaffa food journey at this unmistakable landmark, and you’ll find yourself just across the street from another Jaffa legend: Dr. Shakshuka. Here, Binyamin “Bino” Gabso carries on his family’s Libyan food culture through the ever-popular dish of eggs poached in spicy tomato sauce.

It was Gabso’s father who gave him the idea to serve his customers shakshuka straight out of the steaming hot cast-iron pan in which it is cooked.

Sit here, under the copper pots and pans that hang from the ceiling, among the famous Israeli chefs and families that make up the regular crowd, and feel at home as you share a portion with a few friends. Sop up your shakshuka with a simple loaf of rustic white bread, and wash it down with cold mint lemonade (limonana).
