Great Lunch in Market, Best Hummus

Stopped in for a quick lunch at the recommendation of local friends. Best hummus we have ever had. The hummus with ground beef on top was amazing for lunch. Very authentic

We ate and enjoyed the food yesterday. Too oily for us but tasty. Prices were higher than expected in a market place, but we could manage as the servings were quite large portions. What was apparently missing is cleanliness. Summer & hot weather cannot be an excuse for keeping the 3 of us in the bathroom most of the night... More

As a chef I love finding excellent casual authentic food, this was by far one of my best meals in Israel.

This restaurant is a real gem. Tucked away down a back alley in the shuk (Machane Yehuda vegetable market), they serve authentic local dishes that taste amazing and that you won't find elsewhere. The service is authentic, too, friendly and fast-paced, nothing fancy or fake. The only problem used to be that is was always so crowded, but they solved... More

I had the "azura", baked eggplant with lamb and pine nuts and a salad with tahina dressing. Both were excellent and the large Israeli family next to me was having a banquet of many dishes that made me want to come back to try the rest of the menu. My bill was about $15; great value in this pricy city.... More

Situated in a kind of hidden (but central) back-yard in the market. Special atmosphere, great traditional authentic place. Nice to sit outside in good weather. Always busy and bustling with activity. Very good, simple oriental food. Straight-forward fresh and delicious. Reasonable prices. Been there a couple of times and will return when in Jerusalem again. Highly recommended!

Machne Yehuda is an eclectic market in Jerusalem, and the restaurant Azura adds flavor to this location. Situated off from the main marketplace, Azura is a home style restaurant with outdoor and indoor seating. We shared a meat and potato dish that was excellent. The standard fare includes a small dish of yemenite 'zchug' - spicy and tasty. By far... More

The food is great. My favorite is the hamusta kubeh soup, however for first time visitors, the tasting menu is a good option--you get a bit of everything. Go early in the day because they run out of the tastiest options by dinner

This place is in a small plaza just outside the market. It specializes in stews and other slow-cooked dishes. Really delicious!!
