To find the Best Shwarma in Israel, you don’t have to travel far. It has become so popular in the last few decades that today you’ll find great Shawarma all over the country.
But, I must confess that I am biased when it comes to my favorite Israeli food. I think the best one is in Gedera in Central Israel and it is called Barake. I enjoy inviting my grandchildren and meet in Barake for lunch.
Shawarma Barake in Gedera is simply the BEST
It is located on road 40 in the center of the town Gedera, going from Rehovot to the south, like Ashkelon or Beer Sheva.
There is ample parking, but you have to be patient because sometime the lines are as long as the restaurant.
The end result is a fresh lunch or dinner served on pita, laffa or baguette at reasonable prices
