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’.

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 outside Rothschild Allenby Market…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!
