Israel is known for a lot of things, but one thing that you might not know is that it is a great place for foodies. This is because of the fact that it is a melting pot of many different cultures, all of which have brought their own feel to the place and have combined their own cooking techniques with the various traditions that are native to the land. As a result of this fact, when you go to Israel you will not be suffering from any shortage of interesting places to try the delicious food out.
Most Israeli cuisine is reminiscent of Arabic food because of the fact that Arabs have been the dominant population for many centuries in that area. This means that you can try shawarmas, kababs and lots of other foods. Israeli shawarmas are known for being a little different from the various other wraps that you can get in the Arab world. They have the same distinctive meat composition but the bread to meat ratio is often higher which is going to be a pleasant surprise for people that like eating a lot of meat on a regular basis. To top it all off, you will get the chance to customize your sandwiches to a greater extent because of the fact that Israeli shawarmas have more options that you could potentially end up looking into.
This makes Israel a great place for fussy eaters that are very particular about what they end up putting into their mouths. All in all, if you are the sort of person that likes to go to different places and try out the local cuisine, Israel should definitely be on your list.
