Shakshuka and ice cream @ Tahina

Tahina serves great vegetarian Israeli street food. Everything on the blackboard looks delicious, and the shakshuka comes in three colourways – white, red and green. My green platter (baked eggs with broccoli, avocado and zucchini) was delicious, and my friend was very happy with her red (spicy tomato sauce) one. Somehow we also found room for the medjool date ice cream, made by the folks at Billy Van Creamy. A huge and very satisfying brunch! Find Tahina at 223 High St, Northcote.
