Scenes from a Friday Morning in Tel Aviv Seaport & HaCarmel Markets

Dim Sum very trendy in Israel lately. Many Asian restaurant openings and Dim Sum stalls in both Shuk HaNamal (Tel Aviv Seaport) Market and HaCarmel Market.

The view from the promenade in front of the Tel Aviv Seaport market.
Sports on the promenade. Running, biking and I am not sure if these fellows are surfers or just balancing on the board as a sport?!
Restaurants on the promenade packed with diners for Israeli breakfast.
The best traditional falafel I had in years. HaRambam Falafel at Rambam alley at the Carmel market.

    1. Yep, Dim Sum. Asian food has been the trend in Israel lately, with many new Asian restaurants openings, especially dim sum. Saw dim sum stalls in both markets today. My friend bought some for her son. Would love to give you recommendations when you go.:)

  16. Gorgeous photos Shulie-those olives are calling out my name! Stand-up Paddleboarding is quite popular here in San Diego too, but you probably don't see it much in DC :-)
