Ha’arbaa Street – Tel Aviv culinary center

Tel Aviv travel guide

Ha’arbaa St. is a Tel Aviv culinary center in addition to hosting Cinematheque Tel Aviv, the best theater in the city and the home of well known international film festivals.

Haarbaa Street offers a mix of “body & soul” – the acclaimed Cinematheque Tel Aviv is located on one end of this not-long street, while the rest of it hosts some of Tel Aviv’s greatest restaurants and bars.

Cinematheque Tel Aviv shows films of different genres and tastes, from Classical works of the finest directors, to contemporary mainstream filmmakers, and of course a wide selection of experimental and avant-garde pieces.

Cinematheque Tel Aviv hosts several film festivals throughout the year, including the Comics and Caricature Festival in August, the International Student Film Festival in June, the DocAviv Documentary Film Festival in March, Icon Festival for Science Fiction, Fantasy and Role-Playing films and several foreign film festivals (Australian, British, French, Thai, Indian, Russian and Brazilian). Cinematheque Tel Aviv is located at 2 Sprinzak St on the Haarbaa St. Tel: +972-3-6060800.

As for your culinary options, there are more than you can count.

For Mediterranean favorites try Pahsa at 8 Ha’arbaa St. which offers authentic Turkish Kosher cuisine or Levontini at 18 Ha’arbaa.

Seafood lovers should visit Kazanki at 16 Ha’arbaa, a nice restaurant and bar offering great variety in very attractive prices. For Sushi, don’t miss Unami at 18 Ha’arbaa, a pretty fancy (and expensive) Japanese restaurant.

For great atmosphere and Tapas, Tapeo at 16 Ha’arbaa is your place. And it ain’t over yet – Odeon offers great steaks and Hamburgers, and the trendiest of them all – Messa Tel Aviv, at 19 Ha’arbaa, Chef Aviv Moshe’s personal restaurant, with a design that was featured in world magazines and food to match its fame.

There are several coffee shops on Ha’arbaa street as well, and if you walk a few steps to Hahashmonaim street (just around the block), you’ll be able to find several additional restaurants and cafes, plus one of Tel Aviv’s greatest wine stores, Derech Hayayin (Wine Road) at 93 HaHashmonaim and Lechamim, one of the best bakeries in town.

Old Jaffa

Old Jaffa

Old Jaffa is one of the most ancient cities in the world, with over 4,000 years of history. The Old Jaffa port is one of the most ancient ports in the world, and the control over which had been shifted from one ruler to the other for many centuries. Each of them - Jewish, Christian, Muslim, Greek, Roman or French - has left his own unique mark on the city. You can sense it while traveling the narrow lanes of the city and witnessing its unique charm. Nowadays these small arched alleys, named after the zodiac's signs, are filled with artists' quarters, studios and art galleries, as well as Judaica, archaeology items and jewelry shops. Not surprisingly, Old Jaffa is one of Israel's major tourist attractions and surely one of Tel Aviv's most romantic spots. The best way to start exploring Old Jaffa is by walking down the beach promenade, which offers lovely views of Tel-Aviv beaches and skyline, southward from the "drums-beach". From there you will reach the old port that has great view of the city and a beautiful authentic pier. If you keep walking down the southernmost side of the port area, you will find a ship graveyard. Otherwise, walk up the stairs from the old port and reach Kedumim Square, in the center of the old city. In Kedumim Square you will find the ancient Jaffa museum and a tourist information center. Right next to Kedumim square is a small park with sculptures of Israeli artists, spectacular views of the Mediterranean and a lovely romantic atmosphere. Another recommended walk is towards the Clock Square and the Clock Tower. It was built in the Ottoman period in the beginning of the 20th century and became the center of Old Jaffa. It is located right in the middle of the city's markets, next to the Flea Market and many small shops that offer practically everything you may want to take back home as a souvenir.

The OCD Tel Aviv, a very exciting restaurant

The OCD Tel Aviv, a very exciting restaurant

The OCD Tel Aviv restaurant serves a closed menu (tasting meal) served to all diners at the same time. The seating is around a bar in front of the open kitchen so guests can watch all the work of the kitchen staff. The menu changes from time to time, built by chef Raz Rahav and influenced by culture, ingredients, history and local insolence, taking into account the availability of ingredients and the season, influences from the world and memories. We haven't yet had the chance to go there, but we hear the hype from all around us... send us some pictures. Since the meal requires a fixed menu, the diner will not be presented with one when he arrives. Join other diners in experimenting with new flavors and ingredients by coming with an open mind. Moreover, in addition to the closed menu, we offer vegetarian, kosher, vegan, and more, all according to the displayed menus. You will not be able to change the menu during the meal, so please mention it when ordering. We havn't yet had the chance to go there, but we hear the hype from all around us... send us some pictures. Address: 17 Tartza Street, Tel Aviv-Jaffa Phone: 03-556-6774
