“YOU WANT me to eggplantize you? Eh?” Oved Daniel grunts, brandishing a pair of tarnished serving tongs.

This request is neither a threat nor part of a bizarre initiation ceremony (well, perhaps it could be considered the latter). Daniel is the owner of Oved’s, a renowned sabich stand in Givatayim, where he proudly serves up the quintessentially Israeli street food snack of fried eggplant, hard-boiled egg, tehina, hummus, salad and spicy sauce, all stuffed into a fresh pita.
