The Best Halvah and Tahini in NYC

Where to satisfy your craving for the ultimate Israeli sesame sweet.

We recently had the chance to spend time with Rachel Simons of Seed + Mill, an artisanal tahini and halvah company located in New York City’s Chelsea Market, and we really fell in love with the quality and variety of its halvah, freshly ground tahini and even the goat milk soft serve ice cream topped with crumbled halvah. That’s right: tahini, goat milk soft serve ice cream. It was heavenly.

You can find Jewish delis and bagels with lox all over the country, but to encounter such high-quality halvah and tahini outside of Israel is pretty rare. If you’re hankering for some sesame sweets, you can order directly from Seed + Mill’s website here. And in the meantime, watch our video all about this female-run business. Or read more here about tahini and halvah.
