Dr. Shakshuka

Libyan-Jewish Homestyle

Shakshuka is a basic combination of tomatoes, garlic, eggs and spices cooked over high heat that arrived in Israel from Libya in the 1950s. Today the dish can be found nationwide, but the version here is considered the city’s best. Housed in a converted Ottoman-era warehouse and courtyard near Jaffa’s flea market south of city center, the restaurant serves the dish in a tin pan with a hunk of white bread to mop up excess tomato chunks. Look for couscous and chraime (a spicy North African fish stew) as well, and say hi to the friendly owner, Bino Gadsu.
