Back in New York, I lived just a few blocks away from 16 Handles.  Needless to say, I became a huge frozen yogurt fan.  And so, it is with great pleasure that I announce my discovery of 16 Handles’ Israeli counterpart: Tamara.

From the moment I walked into Tamara, I loved the atmosphere.  They had indoor swings, for heaven’s sake!  I stared at the countless toppings while waiting in line, trying to decide which ones I wanted. Kiwi, granola, halva, pomegranate, gummy bears, M&Ms, almonds, mango, marshmallows, coconut… the options were endless.

We ended up ordering a medium-sized plain yogurt with mango, mekupelet (a type of chocolate), pomegranate, coconut, halva, and hot chocolate syrup.  The medium is definitely big enough to share, so if you’re comfortable sharing the very serious responsibility of selecting toppings, it’s worth throwing in a few extra shekels and sharing one rather than getting your own.

The frozen yogurt was fantastic.  It was just a little bit tart and incredibly refreshing.  Its gentle flavor truly highlighted the toppings, which you could distinctly taste in each bite.  The hot chocolate syrup quickly hardened, adding an extra crunch and richness.

As we neared the end of the frozen yogurt, I greedily tried to scoop up every last bit of it, including the liquid-y melted remains.  The best part? I got to do all of this while swaying contentedly on their indoor swing!

  1. Taly,
    Is this where we went around and filled our cups with whatever our hearts desired? We’re sitting here in the Tel Aviv airport talking about food! Remembering all the good cheer, adventures, and wonderful food we had with you and Doug! Here’s to eating as much frozen yogurt as we can.
