Our super-popular tour in Hatikvah is in-demand for a good reason. This neighborhood is so unfiltered, so close to the center of town and yet so different than anything else in Tel Aviv that it is almost exotic. What else could a person want? Oh, but yes: it is also insanely delicious. When you live and breathe this area in the way we do you know that once day is done, when the moon is out and the street lights are on, this neighborhood shines even brighter. And we know you want to see it happening. So clear out your evening, wear your stretchy pants and come with us for a night tour in Hatikvah.
There’s something different to nighttime, which is true everywhere – and definitely true in Hatikvah. While the (infamous) busy market is slowing down, the cultural juiciness is turning up, and the food joints - open pretty much until the sun comes up - become filled with people from all over the country. Under night’s cover is the best time to check out this hood, which is a culinary gemstone and a key role-player in almost any aspect of Israeli culture. Taste flavors treasured from Israel’s big immigration waves of the 1950s, and see how they interact with the current generation of tastemakers. Experience legendary places straight out from the pantheon of Israeli cuisine, and try from a no-name hole-in-the-wall that makes only one thing – but makes it perfectly. We’ll discover, smell, taste, ask questions and drink wine until someone stops us.
Curious about what kind of food you’ll have? Check this out: we’ll bring some dishes warm from the oven of an amazing Turkish mama, visit a couple of neighborhood food institutions with a combined history of almost 100 years, try the best Kibbeh out of Baghdad, and wrap it up by eating dessert in the streets like locals. More surprises will be discovered, because this place is one big surprise. Come see for yourselves with us what the night looks in this place. Just please come hungry.
