Tourist Tip #161 Buying Shellfish in Tel Aviv

For the non-kosher foodie, the fruits of the sea are fresh and plenty in Tel Aviv but you won't find them at the corner grocery store.

As any shellfish-loving foodie can attest, largely secular Tel Aviv has a huge variety of non-kosher restaurants to satisfy your cravings. Seafood restaurants serve up a tantalizing selection of lobsters, crabs and prawns, and you can even find imported oysters (at eye-watering prices) during the winter months.
