Location and contact

Doctor Shakshuka is a kosher restaurant serving North-African home-style cuisine, which has many fans. Most of the cooking is done in the family kitchen by the mother of the family. The restaurant caters to private events in a unique and authentic atmosphere. Doctor Shakshuka offers the best Turkish shawarma made of thin slices of lamb with minced lamb meat in between, skewered on one huge spit, in his new shawarma place (same location).

Not worth the hype, no offense Phil from Someone Feed Phil. We had better shakshuka in better settings. We shlepped down to Jaffa just for this and not fully worth it. Other spots in Jaffa I wish we tried.More
