Yesterday the teams from RSIP Vision’s Jerusalem and Tel Aviv offices joined together to tour the historical areas of the Levinsky market and Neve Tzedek in Tel Aviv.
Led by our wonderful tour guide Yair, we heard, saw, and most importantly tasted the treasures of the Levinsky market where early immigrants from all parts of Europe and the Middle East set up shop to offer a taste of their national cuisines.
We tasted varieties of hummus, borekas, dried fruit delicacies, olives, feta, marzipan and meringues.
A highlight was hearing about the history of this Turkish deli, and trying their amazing stuffed vine leaves, olives, roasted garlic, and feta.
We stopped for coffee before going on to explore Neve Zedek, the first Jewish neighborhood in Tel Aviv.
Someone was excited about her espresso! (ok, me!)
We ended the tour with a beautiful lunch at Regina’s, at the old railway station that used to connect Tel Aviv and Jaffa with Jerusalem.
It was wonderful to have both offices share each others’ company while learning about Tel Aviv’s history through food. What a fantastic half-day!
You wanted to see that platter again though, didn’t you? 🙂
