The foods of Israel

A typical buffet featuring lots of fresh fish, vegetables, fruits, and delicious creamy hummus.

Cooking schawarma - a delicious treat I had not tried before. To quote Wikipedia, meat is "placed on a spit, and may be grilled for as long as a day. Shavings are cut off the block of meat for serving, and the remainder of the block of meat is kept heated on the rotating spit". 

Schawarma - I wish we had this here!

Fresh produce stands are a common sight.

This vendor is ready to use a press to squeeze fresh fruit juice - a real treat on a warm day!

Would you care for some fresh pomegranate juice?

  1. Ah, no you are talking! This is something I can relate to :) Israeli breakfasts are the best! They can last you all day! I see you enjoyed some freshly squeezed "rimon" (pomegranate) juice too. Delicious!

  11. Oh no, just when I was getting the food images from Burnt out of my head you show me that schawarma pita which is an excellent food shot, btw. That is all I want to eat now. You usually see lamb on the spit, do you know what kind of meat it was?

  24. Oh, the schawarma looks just like gyro meat. I think it's pretty much the same as gyro or kabob. We find it in Greek carry-outs.

  30. The schawarma looks delicious. We have it here but it is has been renamed with a generic name 'kebab'. If you find a good place they are absolutely delicious

  34. YUM! I love Israeli food!!!!!! The one thing we just really can't get around here (even in Houston where we get EVERY type of food and there's shawarma in every neighborhood) are those big, fresh blocks of halvah.

  35. I've just eating dinner, but your scrumptious photographs make me want to eat more. It's been years since I've eaten a shawarma... Mmmmm!

  36. Everything in here looks delicious. I have heard the food in Israel is as good as it can get.

  37. I've not heard of that food described by that name before but in multi cultural Australia, they are called Kebabs and are in every fast food place in towns and cities. Great catch up pics again from you! Hope you are feeling better. Denyse

  39. I'd love to try the creamy hummus - I've heard it is superb in Israel. I'm hoping to buy one of those juicers soon. I've seen them used often in Turkey and recently saw them for sale near our home in Queensland, Australia.
