As I begin this post I am sitting at the Zurich International Airport waiting for my flight to D.C. I haven’t slept for 36 hours but I don’t care–this food review cannot wait any longer!
I was lucky enough to have a chance to visit the city of Tel Aviv-Yafo in Israel this past week. It was an unforgettable experience to say the least. I had never before been to Israel and felt like I went in with an embarrassingly minimal amount of knowledge regarding its culture (I am also not Jewish).
Everyone I encountered was incredibly welcoming! While Hebrew is the official language, most people speak English as well and all restaurants have variations of menus. Tel Aviv is often considered one of the most accommodating cities for eaters of plant-based diets.
For this reason, I am initiating a new series on the blog, “Scape Escapes” (scape…like garlic scape..HA-HA). I love travelling to new cities but it is not always easy to find vegetarian/vegan options that are affordable and easily accesible. Additionally, I wanted to create a log for myself to help remember the INCREDIBLE eats I was able to experirence while in TLV.
There you have it! The best “food” city I have ever encountered. Yes, I did other things besides just eat. But those pictures are on Facebook. This is a food blog we need to prioritize what really matters!
Seriously. I could not recommend Tel Aviv enough. I felt incredibly safe and welcomed by everyone there. If you ever find yourself in that region of the world, let me know!
Now time to plan the next Scape Escape…any ideas?
