Dr ShakshukaPrice: Cheap
Don’t be fooled by the slightly grotty exterior – this is one of the best places to eat in Tel Aviv. As the name suggests, the speciality is shakshuka, a pan filled with simmered tomatoes and a fried egg, but the shawarma (kebabs) and mezze are delicious too. Wash it all down with a lemon-mint juice.Address:
Tel: +972 3 682 2842.

Max Brenner Chocolate BarPrice: Moderate

It might be housed in a beautiful Ottoman villa with its original floor tiles, but Chef Meir Adoni’s oeuvre is anything but old fashioned. Drawing on the molecular cuisine pioneered at the Fat Duck and El Bulli, the menu is ever changing and the dishes thoughtful, albeit with plenty of unexpected touches.Address:
