Israel is a melting pot, which means that Israel’s society is made up of many different groups. Israel is a young country and most of Israel’s citizens immigrated to Israel from different places. In Israel you can find Jews from Morocco and Russia, Ethiopia and Belgium and basically from the whole world. One of the most interesting things in such a multicultural society is the mix of tastes, colors and cultural differences.
One of the oldest Jewish communities is the Yemenite Jews community, and if you want to enjoy Yemenite Jewish food, music and atmosphere – you’d better come and visit Saluf and Sons. The Jewish-Yemenite food is well known for its pastries, soups and spicy pastes.
Located in Levinsky area, Saluf & Sons will offer you an authentic Yemenite Jews experience.
I went there on a Friday at noon, the place was packed with people, the music was loud and the place was very festive. We ordered beers and some food. We tried the Malawach – a yemenite pancake with tomato salsa, egg and Tahini, one Hummus plate and the Mashawia meat stew with couscous, which was fantastic.
The food was very fresh and spicy and the Yemenite music also helped to spice up the atmosphere.
If you are looking for an authentic and fun place I highly recommend you visit Saluf & Sons.
