Because settlers came to Israel from all over the world, Israeli food is an eclectic mix of various food ideologies fused with Middle Eastern flair. Quality is the name of the game, and the fresh produce grown in Israel is some of the best in the world. Despite originating in Egypt, falafel has been perfected in Israel and can be found on almost every street corner. Other Middle Eastern inspired food that has been perfected in Israel include hummus, shwarma and shakshooka which is a concoction of tomatoes, onions, garlic, as well as crucial spices such as sweet paprika that is then topped off with a poached egg and soaked up by bread. For the best and cheapest way to experience this cuisine, visit the many food stalls dotted along the main street.
