United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon indulged in some shakshouka-eating in New York on Wednesday with Israeli Ambassador to the UN Ron Prosor.

Shakshouka is an Israeli dish of poached eggs in tomato sauce usually eaten for breakfast.

The two ate the Israeli delicacy in honor of Israel’s 67th Independence Day which began Wednesday night and will be celebrated in full barbecue swing on Thursday in Israel.

The dish was supplied by ShukaNYC, a shakshouka food truck business started by three Israeli friends originally from the central city of Ra’anana.

The truck was parked near UN headquarters for convenience and outfitted with Israeli flags for the occasion.
