Hi, I’m Debbie,

I started my blog in 2010 to write about all the wonderful places I enjoyed in the Holy City and around Israel.  As a self-proclaimed foodie who grew up in London and moved to Jerusalem in 2008, I loved discovering local eateries with friends and the added bonus of showing visitors the great choice of restaurants my city had to offer.  Over the years I became the go-to person for recommendations of restaurants and bars among friends and families which led me to start this blog.

From there I started writing food reviews for The Jerusalem Post – all of which appear on this blog. If you are looking for recommendations for places to eat and drink in Jerusalem, please join my Facebook groups,  Restaurant Club Israel or Restaurant Club Jerusalem and follow the Instagram page @debbestisrael.  I also review most places on Trip Advisor, click here for my profile and book hotels using Booking.com.

In 2018 I rebranded and redesigned the blog, so I apologize in advance for any broken links or missing images in posts that have been copied over from my previous blog.

Feel free to add your own comments and recommendations or be in touch with me directly for specific advice.

Thanks for visiting!
