veggie community

I heard about Amirim a few weeks before my travel so I was quite excited about it. Can you imagine? An entire vegetarian community living in a hill, sharing the same values and enjoying gorgeous food. It was even better than I thought.



Amirim is in the Golan area of Israel and there is only road to reach the hill. Once you arrive, then you can see lots of houses and a few guest hotels. We saw a few dogs, cats and goats walking around.


We went to Dalia’s restaurant for lunch. We ordered the usual local lunch and when we saw all the dishes, we knew we would be in trouble. Everything was so tasty: the soup starter, the hummus, the tender cauliflowers, the sweet dates filled with rice, the falafels… I mean, it took us ours to finish the plates.

And having a dessert looking at the Sea of Galilee while drinking a light tea is just heaven. I will definitely come-back.

The only down side though is the language – quite hard to discuss with people when you do not know Hebrew. For next time I guess…
