Israel, Tel Aviv – our trip to Tel Aviv was all about food. On top of food, city itself is magical and we are coming back for sure. You know when you have a feeling that the city is happy? That is Tel Aviv. Every street has the story, every neighbourhood is so vibrant and you want to see every hidden corner of it.
Food in Aviv was the reason of our trip. We went directly in the heart of our favourite cuisine. You can literally eat hummus and Shakshuka on every corner. But hey, true foodie will walk miles and miles to try the most original recipes as possible.
Shakshuka. I was quite sceptic about this meal as I have a problem eating cooked paprika (my tummy simply does not like it). And would you believe me if I say the I never ate Shakshuka before Tel Aviv? Dr. Shakshuka, most famous place for THE Shakshuka in the city. He mastered his art of making this actually super cheap meal in prison and afterwards he became famous. And there, hidden in the walls of Jaffa’s Flea Market, I ate my first ever Shakshuka. Explosion of taste, simplicity reached another level. And no taste of cooked paprika from that moment Shakshuka became one of my favourite quick and easy meals to prepare. I just had one big challenge, how to create a Shakshuka recipe that taste at least close as the one from Dr. Shakshuka.
