Don't leave the country without sampling everyone's favourite snack.
A sweet treat with a surprising flavour.
One of the most prominent dietary restrictions of kosher cooking set forth by the Talmud prohibits mixing meat and dairy, so you'll find an especially large variety of dairy dishes to choose from - most prominently halva as well as labneh, a sweet cheese that resembles yogurt. It's made from the milk of either the cow or sheep, and while it comes in many varieties, most often it tends to be made with herbs and spices such as thyme. While halva is generally favoured for dessert, labneh is preferred for breakfast or as a snack. Absolutely delicious - and probably different than anything you've ever tried before.
