Rabbi Yohanan Street 8, Tel Aviv-Yafo, Israel

At the heart of the flea market lies Puaa, a distinctive cafe-restaurant that opened at the end of 1998. It offers a charming and beloved respite from the fast-paced life of Tel Aviv, where love, customer service, and collaboration allow individuals to shine. The restaurant is adorned with vintage trinkets and nostalgic pieces that emit authenticity. Puaa was a pioneer for the gentrification of Jaffa, paving the way for other bars to follow. The food is simple yet exceptional, we recommend the popular mansaf dish featuring ground meat and pine nuts. On weekends, getting a table can be difficult, stick to your plan and you’ll make it! You can buy the flea-market-sourced decor, including very cool mismatched crockery and retro teapots.
