LOKAL: A Cozy Road Inn Serving Exceptional Burgers and Chicken in Tel Aviv

LOKAL: A Cozy Road Inn Serving Exceptional Burgers and Chicken in Tel Aviv

I recently had the pleasure of dining at LOKAL, a humble yet present road inn located on Ahad Ha'am street in Tel Aviv. This establishment was born out of a partnership between Alon Peled and Aviv Cohen, who raised a very efficient chicken startup in their crowded apartment during the COVID-19 pandemic. The menu at LOKAL is concise but impressive, offering a burger, chicken, and vegan option with fries on the side and a large container of kombucha that can come plain or alcoholic. I opted for the Smashburger meal, which included 200 grams of aged meat, American cheese, house sauce, house pickles, lettuce, and onion served with chips and a drink for NIS 72.00. The burger was cooked to perfection on a plancha with a dedicated iron weight, resulting in a patty that was neither too crispy nor too juicy. The Koji salt and cheddar cheese added a unique flavor profile that elevated the burger to something truly exceptional. The homemade sauce was also outstanding, completing the burger in a truly satisfying way. My dining companion opted for the Crispy Chicken Dinner, which was served with garlic aioli, homemade pickles, garlic pepper sauce, and fermented honey, American cheese, and lettuce for NIS 72.00. The chicken breast was marinated in ravioli and spices, resulting in a super crispy coating that was incredibly delicious. The additional sauces and toppings made for a flavor explosion that we both thoroughly enjoyed. The restaurant's atmosphere is humble and unpretentious, with a focus on providing customers with high-quality food and drink in a cozy setting. The staff were friendly and accommodating, making us feel right at home. Overall, LOKAL is an outstanding addition to the Tel Aviv food scene. The restaurant's dedication to providing customers with delicious, high-quality food in a cozy atmosphere is evident in every aspect of the dining experience. I highly recommend stopping by LOKAL for a meal that is sure to satisfy both your taste buds and your soul.

Tel Aviv celebrates it's 100th birthday

Tel Aviv celebrates it's 100th birthday

Tel Aviv's 100th birthday celebrations kicked off on April 4th in Rabin Square before a crowd of 400,000, who came to celebrate in the most energetic, optimistic, liberated, and colorful city in the Middle East, and some say it's the most bustling, youthful and fun city in the whole world. The gala event started with a stunning concert highlighted with a multi-media sound & light show and performances by top Israeli artists: the Israeli Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Zubin Mehta, Barry Saharof, Matti Caspi, Shlomo Gronich, Miri Massika, Monica Sex, dancers and acrobats. Rock bands played on the roofs of nearby buildings, while impressive historical pictures of the first Hebrew city were displayed on huge screens. This amazing happening concluded with an impressive fireworks display and a massive street party. Tel Aviv features sky-scraping towers and stylish hotels by the Mediterranean Sea front promenade, offering one of the world’s most spectacular urban beaches of vast and pristine golden sands. Fashionable nightclubs, hip bars, fine restaurants and colorful cafés make it hard to imagine that exactly 100 years ago, there was nothing here but sand dunes and a few dreamers who started building the first Hebrew city of Tel Aviv.

Old Jaffa Museum

Old Jaffa Museum

Near Kadumim Square and the Summit Garden in the old city of Jaffa, the Old Jaffa Museum hosts changing exhibitions for the whole family, workshops and activities for kids throughout the year. When visiting the museum with your children, you should also visit the ancient alleys of Old Jaffa, the new Zodiac Fountain, the Bridge of Wishes in Khar Kedumim, a flea market and many restaurants in the area. A unique architectural and historical building houses the museum, Sarya al-Atiqa, the old Ottoman government house. This building was probably originally used as a caravan-sarai hostel, or a khan, at the beginning of the 18th century. There is a pillared hall and a vaulted ceiling in this Ottoman complex built on the remains of a Crusader citadel.
