CONDE NAST TRAVELER:
WHY TEL AVIV HAS THE BEST VEGETARIAN FOOD
IN THE WORLD!
Tel Aviv, the city recognized for its Bauhaus architectural treasures by UNESCO, applauded by the young and young-at-heart as the city that never sleeps and renowned for its long stretch of sandy beaches and Mediterranean blue seas, now has another accolade to add to its list: Condé Nast Traveler recently listed it as the destination for the world’s best vegetarian food!
CNT asks how Israel’s trend-setting city became a herbivore smorgasbord and answers by saying “Start with the abundance of raw material, the gleaming pyramids of eggplants, peppers, and cabbage heaped like pinups at the city’s Carmel Market. Then add all the gastronomic influences—Russian, Polish, Arabic, Moroccan, Bulgarian, Iraqi—that can coax a world of flavors out of the most humble potato. Spending a week going meatless in Tel Aviv isn’t just easy; it lets you sample the city's best bites”.
The article gives a list of interesting restaurants spread around the city including Cafe Anastasia, Nanuchka, Bindella, Chiripom and Dellal as being among the restaurants that have an exciting choice of dishes to eat for vegan and vegetarians.
