Sabich Tchernichovsky

Time Out says

One of the best spots to sample an Israeli-Iraqi street food staple known as ‘sabich’ in the heart of Tel Aviv.

While this hole-in-the-wall, bare-bones spot is not known for its decor, the sabich prodigies behind the counter offer such extreme focus and attention to detail to each pita that you will leave a teeny bit guilty for judging a book by its cover. It's all part of the unassuming charm. Locals and in-the-know travelers are well aware of this under-the-radar spot (which received gold-star recognition from none-other-than Anthony Bourdain), but newbies might be put off by the constant line trailing outside. We are here to tell you this masterpiece in a pita is well worth the wait. Fresh eggplant, hard-boiled egg, potato, and tahini come together to create a confluence of flavors and such perfect bites, you might have to talk yourself out of not getting back in line. Try the amba sauce if you really want some Middle Eastern kick.
FYI, this spot used to be on Tchernichovsky Street and has since moved around the corner to Allenby Street, but kept its namesake.
