Come One, Come All


Something for everyone......meat-lover, veggie-lover, chocolate-lover........Thanks Chef Teebs for the write-up, we're glad you loved, and would love to see you back soon.

"Before arriving to Europe I researched about vegetarian/vegan food and found that most people said Venice has the worst food. Honestly we were very blessed we found two restaurants I would definitely be a regular at if I were a local. One was called GAM GAM Kosher Restaurant. It's located at the main entrance of the Jewish Ghetto. I had fresh grilled veggies and Jackie had veggies with couscous. The hummus was delicious!"

Qype it Up!


Thank you for the 5-star review of GAM GAM Kosher Restaurant.

"Excellent Hebrew and Jewish cuisine and nice service. We can absolutely recommend the israeli starters (9,80 €). It’s just a fantastic tour of taste with I think about 10 or more different delicious little things to try plus Falafel. Also the fried artichokes are really good! Lemonade and ice tea is home made and also worth to try! In addition to that here are a bit less tourists and you can sit in front of the waterside. Prices are quite normal to low price. If you come by waterbus just hop off the boat at “Guglie”, head just a few meters to the right and enjoy the wonderful food :) Just want something cheap on the go: ask for the GAM-GAM take away just around the corner with fantastic pizza and little things filled with sweet or savoury (vegetables) stuff."

How to Spend 36 Hours in Venice


Just googling around and found a very interesting article:

Experience Plus! Tour Leader, Sara V. shares her secrets on how to get the most out of 36 hours in Venice. Right along with visiting S. Marco, the Tower, Rialto & the Rialto Market, Murano & Burano, check out Sara's choice for the one lunch in Venice:

"Continue your walk through the neighborhood of Cannaregio from Ponte delle Guglie.  Head under the Sottoportego del Ghetto Vecchio (see if you can find the marks on the wall caused by the rings that were a part of the gates that were closed after dark when the Jewish population was required to stay inside the Ghetto).  Depending on your timing, if it’s lunch time you could try the only restaurant serving kosher food in Venice called GAM GAM."

Thank's Sara! You gotta love that! I hope I get to meet her someday so I can take her to lunch;)
