    "It says Israelis prefer to drink instant or Turkish coffee" Outdated? In Israel, you get instant coffee in restaurants (you will NEVER see that in Europe), at the workplace and in a lot of homes. The only alternative in most places: Turkish Coffee. And I appreciate the writers that sent tourists to restaurants that are exclusive and expensive. Because if they tell them about the places I usually go to, I will have to get in line behind a busload of American visitors - and every one of them wants to pay in Dollars. I guess everyone in this country experienced that several times. I've seen it often enough. (Dear Americans, we like you. But please recognize the fact that this country has a wonderful currency of its own and it even allows guests to use it...) Apart from that: Every tourist guide is full of cliches (like the Dollar waving American ;-)). Ever seen one for France, Germany or Spain? Berets and Baguettes vs Bratwurst and Beer vs Paella and Pamplona...
