From herbed pita bread to the most mouth-watering breads and rolls you could imagine, this is a place that looks and smells wonderful and tastes even better. Don't walk by without trying something.

The worst place you can find to eat shawarma in Tel-Aviv, and probably Israel. The chicken is not cooked enough, totally unseasoned. You can make a wheel out of the meat with it's elasticity. Maybe 3 mezze out of 10 are good to eat if...More
