One of Tel Aviv’s hottest hangout spots for a couple of years now is the Port of Tel Aviv, aka the Namal. The port is frequented by those seeking a great place to take a date, a stroll along the boardwalk, and around the chagim there are many attractions for the whole family to enjoy. The port is very child friendly with lots of parking, parks for kids to play in, as well as bike rentals to travel around and see the whole port. There’s also a large shopping center for clothing, food, and much more.
While enjoying a date or a family outing, here is a list of the kosher venues you can enjoy while visiting the port:
We have written in the past about Lechem Basar as one of Tel Aviv’s top meat kosher mehadrin restaurants in Tel Aviv. This is the original branch of the chain that has three locations to date. Lechem Basar’s concept is the fusion of fresh baked breads with quality meats. For example, the restaurant offers a dish called “Lachmagun,” which is a fresh loaf of bread filled with ground beef or lamb and served with tahini sauce. A unique concept, located right on the water.
Kosher Mehadrin HaRav Machpoud
The Lebanese at the Port it an authentic Lebanese meat experience. You can find dishes like fattoush salad – served with fried pita and a lemony vinaigrette, or Maschan – chicken thigh marinated in sumac served on a laffa bread with some really unique side dishes.

Oshi Oshi is a chain of Asian fusion restaurants offering many different types of Asian fare including sushi, kimchi, stir fries and meat dishes.

Some of the dishes like the dim sum aren’t made from scratch, but most of the food is made in-house and is a nice place to end your day.
