  1. Hi Louise,

    A culinary experience in Tel Aviv is definitely an amazing experience!

    In addition to the three restaurants described above, there are several more to try as Tel Aviv is booming with veganism!

    Buddha Burgers is a vegan eatery that serves a variety of different foods such as veggie burgers, veggie dogs, burritos, falafel, sandwiches and even dessert! They even have a self-serve salad bar. This place is very popular amongst vegan locals and travellers and is the idea spot if you want fast food; however, they do serve some nice raw and warm dishes as well. This place is also great for travelling with kids, as it provides a fun atmosphere that everyone can enjoy. In addition, they offer a buffet every Friday. Their address is: Yehuda ha-Levi St 21, Tel Aviv-Yafo, Israel

    Nanuchka is another great restaurant in Tel Aviv! This restaurant if a fun place to go to, especially since the restaurant turns into a bar later at night. They are a Georgian-inspired vegan restaurant, stating on their menu, “Georgians believe that every meal begins with the right company and lots of drinks, the food comes second.” For a unique experience, this restaurant is the right place to be! Their address is: Lilienblum St 30, Tel Aviv-Yafo, Israel

    Another great option would be Neroli Organic Juice Bar and Rawfood Diner. They serve drinks and dishes that are 100% vegan. Travellers have also been satisfied with the service. Neroli is also a store selling organic products. Their address is: 3, Lilienblum (at Neve-Tsedek area), Tel Aviv, Israel

    We hope you found this helpful and let me know if you have any other questions!
