There is so much to say and read about Caesarea but I am not going to give you a history lesson about this place right now. In short, as the name implies, there was a Caesar, Herod, who built this city and its port about 25-13 BCE. Then it turned Roman, a few centuries later it was conquered by the Crusaders who turned it into a Christian city. Later on the Muslims destroyed what the Crusaders built and rebuilt the city to be more Muslim…. And this is in short the history of Israel in one sentence. (If you want to know more about Caesarea’s past and present click here and here)

And we take another break for the most popular side dishes in Israeli restaurants: chips (fries) and Israeli salad = small diced fresh tomatoes and cucumber (Those are basic and can be mixed with other veggies like bell peppers, red onion, etc).
