In the relatively limited menu of Jasmino’s Pita, you can find some interesting things that can be combined together for those who want to.
The 4 “regular” options such as kebab, spring chicken, heart of veal and sausage Margez are always available.
It’s highly recommended to ask the cashier what “specials” they have today that are not listed on the menu. It varies from day to day, but usually in their specials you can find sweetbreads, flank steak or a mix of beef organ meats.
To be honest with you, every time I go there, I choose something different. I do it so it won’t become boring for me since I eat there so often. I eat there too often some would say. But, let me tell you wholeheartedly, it doesn’t really matter which kind of meat you pick, everything will be delicious!
It all starts with the perfect pita…
They serve a fresh pita that is baked in place and it never tears apart while you are eating it. This continues with simple additions that can be added to the pita – tahini, tomato, cucumber, cabbage, onion, hot pepper and amba sauce.
And of course the final seal brings with it the fresh meat that enters inside the pita.
When these three elements are combined together, that’s when the real magic happens. You’ll taste it in each and every bite you take. It’s something that can not be described in words and only when you experience the wonderful taste will you understand what I’m talking about.
If I still have to choose only one specific type of meat that I like most from the Jasmino’s menu, then it will certainly be the sweetbreads.
Sweetbreads are very easy to ruin when you cook them on the grill.
In Jasmino, nothing gets ruined. It’s the opposite.
The place’s grill cooks know how to put them on the fire and exactly the time it takes to cook the sweetbreads perfectly. I strongly recommend trying them out at least once.
My score for taste- a perfect 10/10! Easy!

Hi David 🙂
I have been to Jasmino yesterday due to your recommendation. You were absolutely accurate with what you said about the place. I have been there at 9pm and It was so packed as if someone is giving away gold over there. I waited for like 35 minutes for my Pita.
Unfortunately they didn’t have sweetbreads when I came so I had Kebab instead. It was very delicious and definitely worth the money.
Thank you David! and if you have any more suggestions for a good street food in the center of Tel Aviv, I would love to hear it.
