Vegan burgers and more | King George 41
Goodness have done for burgers what every other restaurant in Tel Aviv offering a vegan burger has failed to do. They paid attention to the details and not only got the flavour right but also the texture, so their burgers are really something you can bite into. Their double burger can satisfy the biggest of appetites and their range of other offerings includes an array of sauces which ensures a complete fast food vegan dining experience.

Vegan Burgers | Ibn Gabirol 88
Truly, Rainbow Burger is the perfect pit stop for born-again vegans who loved meat in a past life, and need that feeling of meaty satisfaction in the pit of their belly (minus the actual meat of course). For that, Rainbow Burger has definitely got you covered! […] One juicy bite of Rainbow Burger later and it *almost* had me convinced that this was the real deal. The texture, look and taste are darn near identical to meat. Not to mention, the soy and mushroom burger blend gave me the same warm, fuzzy, happy-tummy feeling I get from eating meat. Written by guest reviewer Vanessa Perplies.

Vegan Cafe | Dizengoff 140
Most vegan places usually are either healthy, homemade, cheap or serve comfort food, Market is an incredible combination of the four. They have delicious stews that remind you of a cold winter night in your grandma’s house but with a healthy twist, and you can choose whether you want it served on rice (white or brown) or noodles and add toppings like sweet potato and other veggies. The stews change every day, so it’s a good thing you can try them all before deciding! They also have some great salads, soups and sometimes sandwiches, as well as delicious Paletas for dessert!
Healthy Vegan Food | Ibn Gabirol 165
Alegria is slightly out of the way on Ibn Gbirol Street, in Tel Aviv. But it’s totally worth the detour. Everything on their menu is surprising and only in the best possible way. They are a bounty of taste sensations that are unique and packed with goodness. If you visit, it will not be your last time.
