Most international food chains in Israel offer original menu items as well as their kosher substitutes kosher food is frequently required by local customers. Kosher food is prepared with accordance to religious believes. Foods that meet the Kosher dietary laws are labeled with one of the Kosher symbols, including: K, Circle U and Circle K. 

The English word “kosher” is derived from the Hebrew root “kashér,” which means to be pure, proper, or suitable for consumption. The laws that provide the foundation for a kosher dietary pattern are collectively referred to as kashrut and are found within the Torah, the Jewish book of sacred texts.

International food chains in Israel can have kosher and non-kosher branches. Kosher restaurants and caffes must be closed on Saturdays (or during Shabbat) and on Jewish holidays. Another requirement is that dairy and meat must be kept seperatly and some restaurants serve exclusively either meat (fleishig) or dairy (milchig) foods.

You can place orders or make reservations online for most locations above. Just click on links and navigate through websites. Use simtoisrael tourist cards not to run out of traffic as you explore.
