Eating at Dr. Shakshuka is like taking a step back in time with a fabulous plate of food.


Dr. Shakshuka is located in a little alley connecting a back street of the Jaffa Flea Market with one of the main roads. The setting is casual – guests can gather around long tables and eat shakshuka directly out of a sizzling pan. You can dine inside or al fresco and observe the life of the flea market. Wait staff is friendly, and the food is served quickly.


Shakshuka is a Tripolitanian dish made of eggs poached in a spicy tomato sauce with a variety of Mediterranean vegetables mixed in.

Salads include green salad, tahini, and an assortment of small salads for your whole table.
