Tel Aviv is the place to be for anyone who keeps a plant-based diet. With about 4% of the population self-identifying as vegan, it’s often referred to as one of the most vegan-friendly places in the world. Here are our top picks for some of the best vegan restaurants in Tel Aviv that even non-vegans will enjoy.
Named for their address at HaArba St. 16 (HaArba translating to “four”) this restaurant is a paradise for anyone looking for a rich and indulgent meal. Everything on the menu is delicious and designed to be shared, and we especially recommend the fettuccini alfredo. It’s made with coconut cream and rich enough to satisfy even the biggest cheese-lover.
The Green Cat
HaHatul HaYarok as it’s known in Hebrew, meaning, “The Green Cat,” is an entirely vegan pizza restaurant located on Levontin St. Unlike other pizza places who often use pre-made soy-based cheese substitutes, this restaurant makes their own cheese daily out of cashews. Top it off with any of their fresh and unique toppings, like vegan pepperoni, and you’re good to go.
With a focus on local, seasonal fare, Bana offers a somewhat lighter dining experience than other vegan restaurants in Tel Aviv, although the rich and savory Oyster Mushroom with Garlic Confit over Baked Potatoes would have you fooled. This restaurant is very vegetable-forward and doesn’t offer too much in the way of imitation meats and cheeses, and instead lets the produce shine on its own.
