Rainy, wintry days call for comfort foods that are made from love – the type of love that you find in fusing the love of Australian culture with Israeli cuisine.
And food has to cheer you up right? Doesn’t that French Toast just look like a bizarre kind of face? It made me laugh.
Gotta say, grilled/toasted/warm (however they do it) banana is one of my favourite things. I’m sure there’s some sort of scientific explanation for what happens in a banana when you warm it up, but it is bloody fantastic! Definitely had a bit of food envy.
Or you could go for something simple, some labne on toast with bocconcini, tomato and basil (Israeli bruschetta?!).
My absolute favourite is the Angelita Malawach – Puff pastry served with hummus, grated tomato, spicy coriander & a boiled egg ($17). Cannot get past this stuff. There’s something super decadent about eating a slab of puff pastry twice the size of my face, for breakfast. And I’m a sucker for condiments – look at all those options! I got some tomato-y salsa instead of the spicy coriander, but I’m sure that’s lovely too. I hear the waffles and pancakes are good too, and the Israeli big breakfast is also a must-try.
