Food in Haifa Market

"Whatever you do, save room at the end of a satisfying meal for deliciously smooth halvah ice cream."

When in Haifa...there is lots to do, if you’re looking to immerse yourself in Israeli culture and history.

From Israel21C:

“The neighbourhood of Wadi Nisnas (nisnas means “mongoose”) is a concentrated hodgepodge of Arab homes and businesses clinging to the Haifa hillside.

Here, many say, you can find the much-sought-after Truly Best Falafel in All of Israel – perfectly crunchy and light – at Falafel HaZkenim. Or shop at the bustling Wadi Nisnas open-air market, where there are all sorts of indigenous seasonal greens featured in Arab cooking, from cyclamen, hubeizeh (mallow), and ellet (chicory) to mustard stems for pickling, beet greens, and much more.”

Read on at Israel21C for what to see, do, and taste when visiting one of the Holy Land’s most cultured locales.
