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.

Musician and poet Zeev Tene is behind Frank, which became a true Tel Aviv institute in just a few years. 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. Alongside, you can add homemade sauerkraut, potato salad and choose from six kinds of mustard and/or three kinds of mayonnaise. A juicy sausage washed down with a cool glass of beer makes the ultimate summer dish.

Carbs, carbs and more carbs, bagels, toasted sandwiches, pizzas and more. But their most famous and recommended dish is sambousak (a pastry-like calzone). Some favorite sambousak stuffings include mashed potato, zatar (hyssop), yellow and Bulgarian cheese and pizza sauce. As for dessert, there is no better choice than the Israeli sahlab,a warm liquidy, starchy pudding traditionally served with cinnamon, nuts and coconut, baklava and kenafeh.
