This Israeli street food spot, from the team behind Emmer & Rye and Henbit, took over the Easy Tiger space in Fareground Market. It’s a great place for a way-above-average workday lunch or a fun, casual dinner. Bring along your friend who always gets into heated debates at parties by promoting double dipping - they’ll be into the hummus and chicken thigh plate that comes with hot and puffy pita on the side. And since you don’t want to risk getting in the way of their bulldozing style of scooping, order the falafel pita sandwich for yourself to get all of TLV’s best ingredients in a perfect pocket.
