5 Things to Eat During Your Next Vacation to Israel

by Kosher River Cruise Kosher Tour Operator

Food is a tradition in Israel. It's more than just a meal; it's a way to connect with each other across the generations. Israelis know how to do lunch and dinner, but have you ever thought about the snacks? If you have, that's great!  If not, here are some ideas for what to eat on your Jewish trips to Israel:

Pita and Hummus

Pita is a type of flatbread that is usually used to make sandwiches.It can be filled with meats, vegetables or cheese. Pita bread can also be used as an appetizer or side dish with dips like hummus. This dish is a favorite among Israelis because it can be eaten as part of a meal or as part of a snack while they're out doing things like hiking or just hanging out with friends outside. It's also really cheap!


Shawarma is a popular dish in Israel and it's made from meat, chicken or lamb that is shaved off into thin slices. Shawarma is incredible because it's so versatile. You can have it as a sandwich or wrap with vegetables and sauces—or even without any sauce at all! You can also eat it as street food, served on cardboard plates with pita bread and hummus and other toppings.


Falafel is made from: chickpeas, fava beans, garlic and onions. The ingredients are mixed together and then fried in oil until they are crispy on the outside and cooked on the inside. Falafel can be eaten by itself as a snack or it can be served in pita bread with vegetables such as tomatoes and cucumbers. The falafel sandwich is one of the best-known Israeli dishes around the world and has become popular among people who are looking for healthy versions of fast food.


It's a dish that is traditionally eaten for breakfast or brunch, but it can be enjoyed any time of day! Shakshouka is a mixture of eggs, vegetables, spices and tomato sauce that is baked in an oven for about 20 minutes or until the egg whites are firm but still runny. The dish can be served hot or cold and pairs well with pita bread or rice. One thing that sets apart this recipe from others is its simplicity—all ingredients are easily found at your local grocery store.

This dish is made with kataifi, which is a pastry that resembles shredded phyllo dough. The kataifi is soaked in water and then mixed with butter and sugar. Then, the kataifi is layered with cheese and nuts, and baked until it's browned on top. Knafeh can be served hot or cold. It's a great dessert to try on a Jewish travel vacation to Israel.
