Our lunch in Eilat “Le Meridien” hotel. There was a little bit too much cheese but generally salads were good and fresh :)
Our healthy light lunch in some cafe in Eilat! Chopes salad and hummus with vegetables :)
“Rustico”, a slice of Italy! It was very yummy! Beautiful and delicious meal! We did not expected our luch to be this way and the restaurant to be so good!
We saw few of “Cafe Cafe” in Tel Aviv and we stopped for a lunch in one of them. We liked herbal tea and salads there. Very good, fresh, healthy, tasty and btw affordable!
When you are having a tour with “lunch is included”, you never know what to expect to eat. This was our local lunch. Typically, we do not eat this way, but there was not another choice. Being hungry we were grateful for vegetables and vegetarian option.
This was our lunch in Tel Aviv. We loved this place! The name itself tells you a lot. It is called “Fresh Kitchen” meaning it has just fresh options to choose being specialized on health. The menu includes the information about calories and nutritional values doses. Everyhting looked so good! It is such a great place if you care what you eat!
“Txm People’s Cafe Brasserie”
We liked it! It was our last meal in Istanbul (our lunch before leaving Turkey) and we enjoyed everything: nice unterior, quality food and good service :)
There are many fast food in Turkey. MANY! Of course, it is because of LOTS of tourists who need to eat often and quick :) These meals looked better for us then typical fast food with hamburger and fries, but still it (cooked in advance “waiting” hours in big pots in a cafe) did not taste good. It might look not bad, plus pretty affordable, but we just took few bites and left. Anyway, we did not regret about stopping and trying this place, because we had a chance to meet a super friendly Turkish waiter, who is now our friend on Fb :) For that time he dated a girlfriend from Ukraine and he was so excited about it that he even asked for a picture with me (wanting to send it to his girlfriend). He was very positive and good example of Turkish people’s hospitality :)
“HUMSKA KONOBA” is the only option for having a meal in Hum, Croatia. Of course, it is enough to have one restaurant in such a tiny city. What about the menu? We chose those dishes that worked for us: a been soup, an omelet, a salad and a cheese plate. It was not amazing but it was not bad. Hum is a tiny and super simple (although really nice medieval) city and it would be not logical to expect first class restaurant there! %)
Restaurant “Olimp”, Budva, Montenegro (where we stopped for a lunch on our way to the Old town) was really a good option among others to eat. Most places on the Slovenska Beach were focused on food sort of fries & meats & fish (barely any salad), but we trying to eat healthier found in Budva’s menu really good salads & vegetable options. It was both healthy and tasty lunch and we enjoyed the location of the restaurant with its water view and fresh pleasant sea breeze.
Taking a stroll and searching for a place to have a lunch, we climbed the stairs and came up the city walls to Lady Pi-Pi (named after the statue at the photo), a magical grapevine-covered terrace overlooking Dubrovnik’s Old Town!
Our first meal in Dubrovnik was here, in the restaurant “ORSAN”. It has beautiful location with a good view, so we were happy to stay there. We ordered some healthy options (a salad with cheese, mashed potato with spinach and grilled vegetables) and would leave a positive comment about it but… BUT! We were charged extra (super extra!) for some appetizers we did not try at all! I can not even remember what it was (because ordering enough food we rejected it from the very beginning)! What were we charged for then? Well, I understand that a chef cooked something in advance and had to cell it, so every guest was invited to try. But we did NOT want. Then why should we pay anyway? Is it fair? I think NOT! It IS fair to always pay for what you order! Right? It is my opining, but fair enough.
p.s. We ordered light (some fish (salmon if I am not mistaking) and a salad to split) and really enjoyed it :)
