Lonely Planet review

Understandably popular with Israeli backpackers, Shimon’s, tucked into a lane on the right as you head down ‘Glastonbury St’ to the beach, is a good place to fill up on a tasty felafel (₹100) before hitting the beach. For something more unusual to try, go for sabich (₹110), crisp slices of eggplant stuffed into pita bread along with boiled egg, boiled potato, and salad. Or, in a crazy East-meets-Middle-East moment, try the thali (₹250), which comprises a little bit of almost everything on the menu. Pastry addicts should take note: jachnun (a deliciously addictive Yemenite flaky boiled-dough breakfast) is served on Saturdays. Follow anything or everything that you eat with a nice strong Turkish coffee (₹40).
