Though Falafel still reigns supreme as the undisputed ruler of the Israeli street food scene, in recent years it is often challenged by Sabich – A warm pita stuffed with fried eggplants, an egg, fresh vegetables, tahini or hummus and sauces. The dish that was originally the Saturday breakfast of choice for Iraqi Jews in their homeland can now be found in most street food stands, but real good Sabich is found in designated small places serving, usually, this delicacy alone. It might seem simple, but great thought and technique are put into a proper Sabich – the eggplants most be fried fresh, absorbing as little oil as possible. The egg should be brown and warm. The salad should be fresh, the hot sauce should have a kick, and the Amba – an orange tangy spread made from mango and fenugreek – should be fragrant. Not only the ingredients matter, but the layering and dispersing of the different flavors inside the pita. So Sabich is not something to be lightheaded about, and very few places take their Sabich more seriously than the one on Tchernichovsky Street in Tel Aviv. Each pita here takes a few good minutes to assemble, resulting in an always present que of hungry locals, willing to wait for their fix. The wait will allow you to admire the place and its unique pace, but also to see how each costumer has his own way with the pita. Come your turn just ask for “Everything”, and be rewarded with a truly divine bite.
