Everything You Need to Know About Chef Eyal Shani Restaurants

A Summary of the Restaurants and Bars in the Eyal Shani Empire.

Famous in Israel for his love of tomatoes, and for putting everything inside of pita bread, Chef Eyal Shani is also a TV personality and judge of MasterChef Israel.  Most of Eyal Shani’s restaurants focus as much on vegetables as they do on protein. Two of his most well-known dishes that can be found in most of his restaurants are the roasted cauliflower (not in the kosher restaurants) and the Jericho green beans. Most of his restaurants serve food on cardboard, in paper bags, and in other creative ways, which are not plates. The menus are designed for sharing and eating with your hands. Some of the signature dishes can be found in both street food and sit-down restaurants. Below is a summary of all of Eyal Shani’s restaurants in Israel and around the world.
