Probably the dish most associated with Israel! It's so local that when the movie "Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs" was shown in Israel, the title was translated to "It's Raining Falafel Balls".
This creamy paste of ground cooked chickpeas with tons of tehini is the Falafel's contender for the title of "the king of Israeli dishes".
Shakshuka is the local name for one of the most popular Israeli dishes. It's a couple of eggs, served sunny side up, that are cooked on a paste made of tomatoes and peppers.
This savory pastry is one that every Israeli knows. It originates in the balkans so if you traveled in Turkey you probably know their version of it. Bulgaria and Greece have similar pastries as well.
Israelis are huge breakfast eaters and you'll be shocked to see just how healthy an Israeli breakfast is. The Israeli breakfast is an homage to the tradition of the farmers of the kibbutzim.
