I moved with my family to Israel in August, 2004. In my spare time, I have tried to conquer Israel and I have seen the good, the bad and the ridiculous. I often am asked for tips about Israeli restaurants, movies, shows and cultural events. Please join me on my adventures!

Shuk Bites - Machne Yehuda for Novices
Jerusalem's Machane Yehuda (the "Shuk") is one of Israel's most colorful and charming places to visit, but it can overwhelm newcomers. Shuk Bites is the solution; for 99 shekels, a punch card purchased online creates a self-guided tour of ten food stalls in and around the shuk. Many (but not all) of the listed food stalls are a sampling of the best that the shuk has to offer in terms of food. Make sure that each merchant gives you a history of his stall (along with the tasting samples). Shuk Bites is a great way to sample some of the best food stalls in the market at a pace that works for each person. But don't forget to spend some time just exploring on your own!
