Harim Bakery - Kosher - Kiryat AnavimMonthly Roundup

Israel Foodie Roundup February 2023

News from the Israel Foodie scene for February.

This month’s Israel foodie news has a clear trend  – Israel is obsessed with pastries. It has always been easy to find Israeli pastries such as babka, rugelach, and poppy seed cake, but now authentic European bakeries are opening all over Israel. As well as the abundances of bakeries, new openings this month include a kosher dairy restaurant in Ein Karem village in Jerusalem and a sister restaurant to Fu Sushi in Hod Hasharon.

If you are traveling around Israel, please let us know if you try any new or exciting restaurants by sharing your feedback on Restaurant Club Israel or Restaurant Club Jerusalem.
