Description: Eating Israeli Style. 

Israeli eating habits are different from the American ones. The day starts with a hearty breakfast, which is considered an important meal. It consists of mixed vegetable salad; freshly baked rolls; butter, cheeses and sour cream; variety of olives and marinated fish; eggs done according to preference; chilled fruit juices; marmalades and preserves; hot beverage. 

Mid morning calls for a break with coffee cakes or a sandwich accompanied by tea. Lunch is the main meal of the day. It is composed of appetizers, soup, main course with side dishes, and dessert. 

The afternoon coffee, taken leisurely at about 5:00, at sidewalk cafes or at home, is accompanied by luscious pastry or ice cream. Dinner is eaten relatively late, after the heat of the day is gone. It is a light meal, consisting of some of the breakfast elements and some snack foods. 

The Israelis prefer to eat at home rather than out. They enjoy the company of family and friends at their table, even on short notice. The fancy restaurants of the country with the high-brow menus and expensive prices are patronized mainly by tourists and businessmen on expense accounts. The majority of the Israeli-style restaurants are small, simple ones, operated by the owner and his family. Some serve Mid-Eastern spicy foods, and others specialize in hearty Mid-European Jewish foods. The service is informal and friendly, the food is delicious, and the prices are reasonable.
