You'll find a selection of dried fruits at plenty of spice shops in Israel, but this was the first time I tried dried passionfruit, the crunchy seeds still in there.

He sells six kinds of sausage every day, rotating from a selection of about 15-20. We loved a not-too-spicy beef and lamb sausage.
Hummus
Hummus
From Farid and Mohammed Marbach, these hummus plates were the best I had in the Tel Aviv area—light and almost fluffy in texture. The chickpeas are soaked for two days before they're whipped into hummus.
Knafe

British-born Danny Phillips opened this shop that makes knafe to order—five different kinds, including a gluten-free version.
