Israel Foodie News Roundup September 2020

Foodie news and reviews on the Israel culinary scene.

I debated whether to write a roundup this month due to the lockdown. But some of the new restaurants are open for delivery and I personally like to have new restaurants to look forward to trying when they finally reopen.

In the meantime, I have been updating my lists on delivery options Kosher Delivery Around Israel and Restaurant Delivery in Jerusalem. If there is another list that would be helpful or you have any updates to these lists, please comment below or post in Restaurant Club Israel.

Here is a list of new restaurants in Israel:


  • Happiness In The State of TLV is a delivery only pop-up in Tel Aviv by Chef Meir Adoni. The menu includes a selection of Adoni’s street food and Asian dishes such as salmon sashimi, Tripoli fried fish, fish arais and his grandmother’s meatballs. Delivery on Wolt and Ten Bis.
  • Sushi Place (Tzohar) is a new sushi bar on Yoel Solomon in central Jerusalem. They only serve fish, no meat or dairy, for delivery call 077 701 8081.
