A windy day at the Nostalgic Mezizim Beach, Tel-Aviv

When I get to Mezizim beach, the first thing I think about is the Shower scene from the classic cult movie “Mezizim” The showers are still located at the same place, but the beach is changed totally, still, you get the feeling of Classic Tel-Aviv.

Mezizim beach for me is a place to go to during the week, it is packed and very noisy during the weekend but some people like it – not my style.

The beach is the most northern beach in the city and the last one before the “Namal”. Its full of plastic chairs and has a really big beach restaurant that holds live shows and parties from time to time in the summer.

The Reason I DO find myself going to Mezizim is the amazing secret spot to Eat Jachnun located right behind the beach and calledย  Miriam’s Jachnun. After I eat the Morning Jachnun, walking to another beach just seems impossible ๐Ÿ™‚

The dough is rolled out thinly, After the long time in the oven It turns a dark amber color and has a slightly sweet taste.[/toggle]

  1. Hi! Can you please tell me exactly where this place is? I am absolutely dying for some jachnun! Been here a month and still cannot find it. Is it only available on Saturdays (or is it closed on Saturdays?). Hope to hear back soon! Thanks ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. I went looking for it yesterday. I saw the main restaurant and then some sort of shacks behind it. I cannot find the place. Is it upstairs? help :s

  3. OK- found it. Important to note that they are *ONLY* open on Shabbat which doesn’t surprise me considering it’s jachnun. Can you get jachnun anywhere else on any given day of the week or do all places have the same jachnun on Saturday’s only rule? Thanks!
