“Effi Sabich” – Tel Aviv’s finest “Sabich”- is located at 2 Tshernichovsky st. (on the intersection of Tshernichovsky and Alenbi, opposite “The Carmel Market”).
Effi doesn’t simply make his famous “Sabich”. His work involves engineering and constructing the dish while using the “Tehina” in the same way a painter uses his palette. Standing bent, quiet and focused, Effi handles every order as if it was his first, planning how to reach the perfect balance between its ingredients.
After admiring Effi’s never-ending devotion, comes the tasting and the inevitable addiction.
“Effi’s Sabich” – start memorising.
