There’s an old Israeli poem that goes something like this: “Every country that is known, has a dish of its very own / Even little kindergartners know / That to Italy is where macaroni lovers go / The schnitzel in Vienna is big as the sea / And eating frogs in France is normal as can be / The Chinese eat rice that is stuck one to another / While Cannibals would rather eat each other
And we have falafel, falafel, falafel.” (Dan Almagor)
But times have changed since this little ditty was written, and nowadays Israel has a lot more than falafel to offer… Time to take a nibble!

Wishing you tasty travels.
