When it comes to burgers, many Tel Aviv restaurants are not only keeping up with their very distant North American cousins, some may argue they have finally surpassed them. With Tel Aviv’s pizza reputation already at full capacity it’s only natural for the White City to keep on top of their burger game as well. These Tel Aviv street food spots are famous for their burgers where their meat is on point, their fried chicken burgers are all the rage, and even vegan options aim to please. There’s a reason people wait hours afterhours to sink their teeth into soft buns and succulent meat at these burger joints. Here’s our roundup of the best Tel Aviv has to offer between the buns, anytime of day.

Vitrina - Ibn Gvirol

Vitrina opened in 2011 by Nati Menashe and since then, it has become an inseparable part of the Tel Aviv landscape and a focus for those seeking a hamburger or quality sausage. In February 2017, renovations forced him to close the place. Although Vitrina remained in the game, Ibn Gvirol without Vitrina remained as deserted as a hamburger without french fries.
