As veganism becomes increasingly the "mode de mange", Tel Aviv is making a strong case for being crowned as the plant-based capital of the world. With around 400 vegan-friendly restaurants speckled throughout the city, competition is high. Our top picks? Four One Six serves vegan takes on meaty local classics (such as seitan shawarma), Bana is unerringly healthy and Opa has the muted interiors of a White Cube gallery with a pared-back menu to match. Budding chefs should swing by one of the city's shuks (markets) for fresh veg before visiting Levinsky Market in Florentin to pick up spices (a bag also makes for a charming souvenir). Of course, no trip to Israel would be complete without some good, old-fashioned hummus and falafel. Abu Hassan in the Old City of Jaffa has you covered.
