Eastern European foods?

Hello.

We are a group of NYC residents who are going to Israel, and are reminiscing about the foods of our childhood.

Is there a place in Tel Aviv or Jerusalem where we can get stuffed cabbage, potato latkes, and other eastern European foods that we grew up with?

Thanks.

Tel Aviv - Friday morning has several food courts where you'll find these items together with tshulent, gefilte fish and other "Jewish foods" from around the globe. The biggest is at the Dizengoff center. You can take away or eat there standing or sitting on benches.

There are, also, 2 restaurants, one called Sender. another Batya, I'll post the addresses later.

Just to clarify, the one mentioned by Chana in post 1 is in Jerusalem; Shoshi's recommendations in post 3 are in Tel Aviv.

I understand your nostalgia for the Ashkenazi foods of your childhood. I grew up with those goodies too and love them as well. But, to be honest, you'll find the Ashkenazi Jewish cuisine in New York far better than what you're going to find in Israel. Having said that, the food in Israel is superb. So after the stuffed cabbage, gefilte fish and chopped liver, why not try our wonderful chumus, shwarma, and all the other Middle Eastern delicacies Israel is abundant with.
