Time Out says
Meaning “The Big Itzik” after the owner, check out this Israeli spot where your table may have trouble fitting the massive portions.
Known as the ultimate Middle Eastern restaurant in Jaffa, Itzik HaGadol offers delicious and high quality meats and fish dishes accompanied by countless salads, dips, and sauces. Immediately after ordering a main dish, waiters will quickly glide to your table with what seems like an endless amount of small dishes and plates, featuring everything from falafel and chips to pickles and eggplant. This traditional meal is truly Instagram worthy. With nearly twenty small plates fighting over space at the table, the variety of colors, textures, and tastes is mesmerizing. While the decor may not be the most exciting, the food certainly is, so pop in for a plethora of vibrant goodness.
