The Top Spots For Midnight Munchies In Tel Aviv

Liran Daniel

Tel Aviv is known as Israel’s ‘nonstop city’ for good reason. Whether it’s partying till dawn or having a late night drink at one of the bars, you can always find somewhere to hang out. So, if you just came out of a wild party and a serious case of the munchies takes over, be a true Telavivian and go grab something to eat at one of these top spots.

Tony Vespa

Pizza is always a good option for a night snack. At the Rothschild Boulevard branch of Tony Vespa, you can always find many partygoers coming to quell their hunger. The concept is a hot fresh pizza sliced by weight, according to your selection and with a wide range of additions. The most popular options are pepperoni with fresh green chili pepper, bacon and smoked mozzarella, tomato and Bulgarian cheese and plenty more.

La Gaterie

La Gaterie is all about hot and crispy butter croissants, customizable with fillings, in both savory and sweet versions. A high-quality French cheese and sausage can be added according to your own personal taste. If that’s not enough, you can add a poached egg to this dangerous deliciousness that is truly heaven on earth. Sweet toothed individuals can choose between a classic almond croissant, a chocolate croissant or one filled with jam.

Here you can choose among a variety of sausages made of high-quality meat (chicken, veal or pork) all served in a fresh soft bun.

A juicy sausage washed down with a cool glass of beer makes the ultimate summer dish.
