Anastasia Coffee shop
Vegan coffee shop in Frishman street in the heart of the city just 100 meters from the busy Dizengoff street. Anastasia offers its customers a high variety of Vegan dishes, great grilled tofu sandwich, amazing breakfast and the highlight of the place is the multiple drinking options, the fresh almond milk is a trademark of the place and in addition some great superfood drinks like goji berry, chia, acai, spirulina etc.
This vegan restaurant is putting the emphasis on fresh ingredients. the variety of dishes is big and the atmosphere and feeling of the food is not compromising its quality just in order to imitate non-vegan food.
One of the best dishes on the Meshek Barzilay menu is the tomato hummus and the vegan shiitake burger, it’s a must and any food lover, vegan or not will find something to eat in this restaurant.
Nanuchka is probably the first Georgian vegan restaurant in the world. The Georgian people are great fans of dairy and meat, so it was a big change that this restaurant turned vegan a few years ago (as the owner became vegan).
You can find some typical Georgian dishes like khinkali and hachapuri on the vegan version adapted in a way that will make you go for seconds.
The place is getting real crowded in the night and the bar is very busy and fun with a great international atmosphere.

The dishes are versatile, pay attention to the msabaha, grilled eggplant in tomato sauce and the hand torn tomatoes.
