Miami, FL 33180
(305) 937-1546
Visit Website

This bustling Aventura staple tucked away in a nondescript strip mall is the quickest way to get to Tel-Aviv without purchasing a plane ticket. As soon as diners sit they are greeted with a generous (free) assortment of salatim — small samples of beet, corn, and carrot salads, which are the typical start to a meal in Israel. The menu is plentiful and diverse, with comfort foods, a doting safta (grandma) would serve. Orders of hummus and falafel, Yemenite beef soup, chicken liver with onions, schnitzel, or lamb chops are common favorites among Israeli regulars. Make sure to wash it down with a lemonnana a refreshing lemon and mint slushy.

Inventive kosher-friendly sushi and nikkei-style dishes are the star at this Surfside mainstay.

Beyond the mandatory loaf or two to take home at this cult-followed bakery, diners can swing by for breakfast or lunch with specialties like the breakfast sandwich: a cheddar cheese omelette, alfalfa sprouts, avocado, and tomato folded into toasted sourdough country wheat bread or the salmon reuben sandwich (salmon, sauerkraut, thousand island dressing, and Swiss cheese hot pressed on sourdough Jewish rye bread.)
