Tiv Taam Hadera- frozen Dim Sum?

I spoke with Tiv Taam just now and was notified they are missing frozen Dim Sum due thier supplier. (usually they do keep some variety of DS)

You may try and contact Teddy 054-6212098, she operates a Dim Sum catering and maybe can sell you or direct you to your desire.

Ahi-grade tuna south of Haifa?

I'm afraid for top quality tuna you'll have to go further south, to Tel Aviv or Jaffa where most of the Fish dealers operate.

the best food in Israel?

Hi Veggielover,

I guess what you are looking for is to get a taste of some or most of those local goodies:

Hummus +Foul

I'd love to try and lead a group of (overseas) foodies to Israel's "Taste of the best", (at least for my own taste buds). I know some of the best places, and hope I’m available (after 20th Feb).

Only issues are how many are you, how long can you allow for such a tour. We'll have to manage our tour very carefully, with the (hopefully) help of all restaurants /food stalls/ holes in the wall Etc as most of the dishes in this list are very fulfilling, and if you'd wish to taste a lot, a quarter portion of each should suffice…

Let me know how this sounds?

israel food/wine tour

What you are looking for, was my exact idea of creating, but as I have a different satisfying profession, and I can not see (as yet) floods of tourists in general and specific foodies storming Israel, I suffice with taking an occasional friend, family member or foreign business to a private food tour I create and orchestrate.
I could suggest loads of stuff and can even personally help with Tel Aviv best of street food tour. When are you coming, how many are you?
I have a great advice as well. Israel is a rather small place. So you can do it yourself. This week a great, beautiful, fresh and very informative book was published in Israel:
The Book of New Israeli Food (In English) by Janna Gur, I am not sure if its available as yet at Amazon and such, but if you have an interest, let me know. It is published by the leading Israeli food magazine "Al Hashulhan":
