Simtat HaCarmel 13, Tel Aviv - Yafo

Irit may just be Tel Aviv’s best kept secret… on the dirt path that leads the Mediterranean Sea to Shuck HaCarmel, keep an eye out for the bright blue door. Irit is everybody’s sweet Yeminite adopted Safta. It is here where she makes Lachuch, fluffy Yeminite pancakes with the addition of a crispy egg and she serves this with grated tomatoes and zhug, a Yeminite hot sauce.  Her energy is absolutely infectious and she embodies the phrase, “if you love what you do, you won’t work a day in your life.” If you come midday on a Friday, she will teach you how to make the beloved Yeminite breakfast that is Jachnun. Her key ingredient truly is love.
