Israel has a long-standing history as part of the ancient spice route, and Tel Aviv’s modern trends are reliving this importance. The Levinsky market dates back to the 1920s, founded by Balkan immigrants who brought their local flavors with them. The market takes us back eras as many of the family’s next generation are still running the stores. Gourmet restaurant chefs come for fresh spices, dried fruits and store-roasted coffees, as well as olive oils and deli goods. On this tour we will taste throughout the market and meet the owners of the shops – grandfathers and sons working together telling a story of Israel’s ethnic and culinary history.

Delicious Israel: Hummus Crawl – Tel Aviv

Can’t get enough delicious hummus? Some may call it an obsession – Delicious Israel is here to help.  Or at least we will feed your obsession by taking you on our Hummus Crawl, which is much more adventurous than any pub crawl!

The chickpea trend that swept the world as a health food trend has its roots in the Middle East and the importance of hummus in Israel is central to daily life. Israelis eat hummus by the bowl – as a standalone meal with pita and sometimes onions, pickles and spicy sauce. Each ‘hummuseria’ has its claim to fame on style and taste.
Come gorge yourself and decide for yourself who wins the ‘Best of Israel’ hummus award.
** Warning – please plan for a 2-3 hour nap following excess hummus intake.
Hummus Crawl Includes:
  • Multiple stops at Tel Aviv’s best ‘hummuserias’
  • Cold beverages
  • Gum/mints at the end of the crawl
  • Expert guide telling interesting hummus tales (did you even know these existed!?)

Tours are run throughout the day and last 3-4 hours, depending on group size.
