Tel Aviv is known as the culinary capital of Israel and is known as an unstoppable city with exciting nightlife and a vibrant food scene. Rumor has it that there's always a party going on in Tel Aviv!

With beautiful beaches, warm weather, and delicious food, there are so many fun things to do in Tel Aviv. Tel Aviv was voted the vegan capital of the world because it's the city that has the most vegans per capita, meaning there's a plethora of excellent (vegan) food to try.

From visiting colorful food markets, snacking on a delicious Falafel sandwich, sunbathing at one of the many beaches in the city, listening to live music on the streets or dancing the night away, the list of fun things to do in Tel Aviv is endless! The local cuisine is an exciting mix of many neighboring cultures, local produce, and unique spices and ingredients. Discover the local food scene at a food tour with a local guide and they'll show you the best places to find the most delicious Hummus, Shawarma, Mahlabi, authentic local spices, warm pita bread, and more!

One of the best ways to try authentic Israeli cuisine is at lunch or dinner with a local host in their Tel Aviv home. Take in the beautiful sea view or enjoy the central Jaffa location while they introduce you to the delights of traditional Israeli recipes. Why not take part in a typical Shabbat dinner with an Eatwith host, or learn how to make your very own Challah bread or Hummus? No matter what dining event you choose, your time in Tel Aviv is sure to be delicious!
