Ben Gurion Avenue: A streetfull of restaurants.
Okey, this is not just one restaurant I'm introducing, Ben Gurion Avenue is a street full of different kinds of restaurants and it's a great place ot eat in Haifa.
The Ben Gurion street was originally full of German templer's houses, but nowadays it is conquered by restaurant keepers. :P Ben Gurion avenue continues as the Bahá'í Terrace Gardens, and that's why you can have a BEAUTIFUL scenery while you're eating. At night the gardens and the Shrine are amazingly lit and during the day the flowers and palm trees of the gardens as well as the beautiful marble used to build the terraces can be seen from the avenue. This is why I recommend eating outside the restaurants (all of the restaurants have outside tables because of this scenery).
Favorite Dish: From Ben Gurion you can find all kinds of restaurants. Cheap, expencive, local, traditional, chinese, indian... the list is long. Just walk the avenue and you'll find the perfect restaurant for you.
ATTENTION!! During your visit in Haifa, PLEASE taste some shwarma and falafel. Shwarma is basicly kebab in pita-bread and falafel is vegetarian balls mafe of kick beans, also served with pita-bread and vegetables. These dishes are sold in every street corner in Haifa, and they are like fastfood kiosks. The food is cheap and you can make it like you want: in most places you get the bread and the meat/falafel and you can stuff the bread with a variety of vegetables (usually there are some 20 things to choose from). The fyyyyyd is GYYYDD!! :):)
STOCK and CAFE: PASTA LUNCH in a SHMATES SHOP
The restaurant is located in a large Shmates shop, which means a bazar style shop. aandles, aroma botels ant lighters, rugs, glasswear...aso. Not my type of shop. At the back there is is a nicely decorated restaurant, which serves bussiness lunch for 28/39 shekels. You get a nice salad soup or pasta and a bottle of soft drink. The food is realy tasy and good. a good deal
Favorite Dish: We tried the alfredo with mushrooms and the tomato with cheese. both were great
