The tests are complete, the results have returned and unfortunately, your condition is quite serious. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news – especially after such an exhausting night of drinking down Dizengoff, barhopping along Allenby, and getting thrown out of that club on Rothschild – but, it seems you are suffering from a bad case of the ‘drunchies’. Yes, we know, it’s dreadful. You’re tired, you say? Don’t sleep now. That hangover that creeps up before a boozy morning of Israeli breakfast at one of the best restaurants in Tel Aviv will only be worse if you don’t eat something now. It’s four a.m. and you’re hangry. Our prescription: a heavy dose of greasy pizza, hot hamburgers and anything you can fit in a pita pocket before crashing in bed or on a bench on Allenby…depending how far you can make it (we won’t judge). These ‘drunk munch’ Tel Aviv restaurants have been taste-tested by your very own Time Out team who guarantee that they’re foolproof. Enjoy!

Brooklyn Pizza

For those missing a slice of oversized pizzas — 50 cm to be precise — the Brooklyn-style pizza that doesn’t fall apart also seems to have a never-ending selection of toppings like artichokes, ham and cornichons, all with some serious New York nostalgia. For a decadent ending to your meal, get the calzone filled with nutella alongside some luscious soft serve ice cream.

At Miznon, celebrity Chef Eyal Shani is redefining the pita as a serving vessel for a plethora of mouthwatering meat and vegetarian options. Just about anything you can fit in a pita is on offer here, including a rich and meaty minute steak, shakshuka, chicken liver, and kebabs. Vegans and vegetarians alike can find tasty fare here too, with a slow-cooked ratatouille that melts in your mouth and the juicy head of a whole cauliflower that oozes flavor.
