September 25, 2015 By The FellowshipIsrael is known for its cuisine – whether that’s at a sit-down restaurant or at a street stand. If you’re lucky enough to find yourself in Israel and want to know the best street food, a new list by the Israel Ministry of Tourism on Tablet is just what you need. They’ve compiled a list of nine of the best street food vendors throughout the Holy Land. Including . . .Uri’s Baguette 86 HeChalutz St., BeershebaA baguette-sandwich is a staple of the Israeli soldier’s lunch, but it’s a far cry from what you would find in a French boulangerie. First of all, the Israeli baguette is shorter than the French original and its texture resembles a roll or a bun rather than the crunchy French version. The variety of things Israelis eat inside their baguettes may also be surprising. A classic Israeli baguette-sandwich will include anything from schnitzel or an omlette to shakshouka, meatballs, or an Asian stir-fry. Indeed, the Israeli baguette-sandwich is the larger version of the pita-sandwich, and thus perfect for military-size appetites.Of course not only soldiers eat baguette-sandwiches for lunch. Any hungry individual might do so, and the best place to get them is located in the Negev, at Uri’s Baguette, Beersheba’s prime sandwich stand. The thing to get at Uri’s is a Tunisian sandwich, served either in a baguette or in a fricassee, or a Popeye omelet (you guessed it, it’s a spinach omelet), served in a baguette or a pita.Read about the other eight great Israeli street vendors.
