Azura Tel Aviv is the little sister of the famous Azura restaurant in Jerusalem. Here you will find distinctly Jerusalemite hummus - creamy and smooth, seasoned to perfection with a steaming pile of chickpeas, beans, olive oil and parsley on top. Paired with hot, fluffy pita and tasty homemade pickles, there is no better meal. Azura also boasts delicious tomato salad, bean soup, kebab, meatballs, eggplant, lamb stew and other delicacies. It's so good, it will leave you craving a day trip to Jerusalem just to try the original.
Foreigners may think they know Middle Eastern cuisine, but NEWS FLASH: we're not just all Israeli salads and falafel. While Israelis are serving up some pretty heavenly hummus, Tel Aviv, Haifa, Jerusalem, and beyond are both honoring tradition and redefining the classic staples with fresh, innovative takes. Some have mastered the Israeli art of the pita pocket, others spice things up with shakshuka that packs a punch, and some hold true to their Yemenite roots with Saturday morning Jachnun in the Kerem.
