If you wanna have some local food, which is fresh and tasty, don't miss Tala. They have just a few tables and therefor it has a cool athmosphere. But don't look into the kitchen. Instead, enjoy the taste.

I consulted my pictures from the place, but I couldn't find any opening hours... So I checked their web site instead... ;-) They are open 10:00 am to 10:00 pm all days of the week. The web page starts with talahummus.
