Israel is celebrating 60 years of independence this week, and we’ve come a long way, baby. Long enough to have organic falafel on Tel Aviv’s Ibn Gvirol Street next to the City Hall.
Introducing Hippo, the hip falafel joint that ensures that every bite you take out of the national snack is pesticide free and therefore less harmful to the environment.
Located at 64 Ibn Gvirol, Hippo offers an organic, vegetarian, and undeniably patriotic way to celebrate this year’s Independence Day with some great food. At Hippo you can opt for the traditional falafel in a pita with hummus and tehini, or spice things up a little and get falafel in a whole wheat pita with some unique sauces – such as chimichuri, salsa, and garlic sauces.
For those of you trying to think of ways to celebrate Independence Day in a sustainable way this year, Hippo offers takeaway falafel and you could easily grab some to take to an environmentally friendly picnic. Supplement that with some organic hummus and whole wheat pitas and you’re good to go. Barbecuing? How about picking up some local veggie burgers to throw on the grill and counteracting all the greenhouse gas emissions associated with eating meat?
A happy Independence Day is a sustainable Independence Day. One that celebrates our independence from harmful pollutants.
