We took a day trip to Ashdod, Israel, and it was only a short drive from Tel Aviv. We first stopped at an amazing Aunty who is known for her Moroccan food. We then had an incredible Tunisian sandwich in Ashdod, before finishing with a gourmet fish lunch.
“The Old Lady” – There’s no restaurant name, but setting up around 11 am in a small park in Ashdod, this Aunty serves some unbelievable Moroccan Jewish food. We ordered a plate of tuna stewed in chili and a plate of mixed beef parts, mostly tongue and head meat, stewed in the same chili. It was one of the best meals I ate in Israel.
Total price – 80 ILS ($22.33)
Mauris Tunisian Frikase – Another legendary hold in the wall food spot you have to try when you’re in Ashdod is Mauris Tunisian Frikase, a type of fry bread sandwich. The bread is fried then filled with a variety of harissa, vegetables and tuna. Mauris also insisted I try some Boukha, a Tunisian fig spirit. The combo was awesome.
Frikase – 30 ILS ($8.37)
Pescado Restaurant – Finally for lunch we drove over to Pescado, a gourmet fish restaurant. The owner’s family has a fishing industry, so that’s why they have such a good source of best quality fish from the Mediterranean. The food was fresh and excellent. I enjoyed the fusion of Middle Eastern and Japanese cooking ingredients and techniques.
Total price – 400 ILS ($111.63)
And that completes our Ashdod food tour. Food was amazing, my favorite was the amazing elderly lady who cooks Moroccan food that will blow your taste buds!
