A Culinary Tour of the Immigrants Restaurants of Neve Sha’anan

Neve Sha’anan and the Central Bus Station compound are nowadays associated with work immigrants and refugees who made it their home. Filipinos, Thai, Eritreans and Sudanese are a part of the local scenery, and like every place in the world where a foreign community gathers, an authentic culinary scene developed here, offering the smells and tastes from their homelands.
Join us on a fascinating tour full of tastings, through the streets of this colorful neighborhood, among the exotic restaurants and the small eateries; some are official and out in the open, while others are underground. We’ll visit a Filipino restaurant with an interesting story and savor a tasting tray of excellent Filipino food; we’ll feast on a light Eritrean Injera with a selection of sauces and fragrant stews (vegan-friendly) and taste Eritrean lager beer and other special drinks. If we are lucky, we’ll pop over to a small apartment (open on various hours) where amazing and irresistible Nepalese food is made.
We’ll continue to “Makati Kabalan”, which is the Asian food court on the fourth floor of the New Central Bus Station. We’ll sniff, snack and mostly enjoy roaming through its stalls packed with fruits, vegetables and a variety of leaves and fresh herbs, reminiscent of the Southeastern Asian markets. We’ll end our tour at a long-lasting culinary institute, providing every Asian product you can dream of; noodles and various snacks, as well as fresh or frozen ingredients you can try at home.
