  • Dr. Shakshuka

    3.5 out of 5 stars

    Tel Aviv-Yafo Restaurants

    The place is supposed to serve authentic shakshuka - a layer of spiced tomatoes and peppers with poached eggs on top of it. What was served was tomatoes/peppers with one egg mixed into it and the other one, still raw (!), on top of it. Service was rude and the bill was too high (they charged more than what was written in the menue). Upon...

    This Cafe / restaurant look like one of the nices at the area. We only looked for a warm drink after walking around for a few hours and we decided to check this one and look inside, the surprise was big and we immediately "conquered" one of the warm comfi sofa's. The room that we set it was under the ground so it felt like being in a cave. It is...
