Local Delight

Amazing local authentic food spiced and fresh. All kind of various dishes includes soups, meat and many more. Happy and joyful atmosphere. Prices are fair but the only downgrade is that you have to pay cash. Highly recommended!

This place is one of the best home cooking places I know. Sometimes I just get into my car and drive 100 km for a good dish. When in Jerusalem be sure to visit the machne Yehuda market and have lunch in AZURA

All of the food here is really tasty, but the felafel is the best in the country, hands down. They don't always have it, on Fridays I don't think they make it at all, like the other fare they make a certain amount and when it's gone it's gone. Everything is fresh, homemade and tasty. The owners are nice and... More

Our hotel manager recommended this as traditional Israeli food so, when we arrived at Mahane Yehuda Market, we asked the vendors where it is. It is off the main street and is quiet. They don't have all the items listed on the menu and the waitress told us what was available at the time. The portions were plentiful and like... More

A friend of mine who is a 9th generation Jewish man took me here for lunch. OMG, the food here is AMAZING! As you have read in other reviews, it is cooked slowly in pots. I had "Sofrito" for the first time and I can't wait to have it here again. I am sorry I don't know what a few... More

The restaurant is in the Iraqi section of Machne Yehuda. It is a legendary place where the food is cooked slowly on very low fire. Whenever I come to Jerusalem I make sure I have lunch there. Nothing fancy but wonderful home cooking which has the taste of Jerusalem (a bit too much oil). Try the musaka and the sofrito.... More

The restaurant is located very close to the Machane Yehuda market but off on a side street which makes for a quieter meal. We arrived at their opening time for breakfast, with the staff busy with their morning preparation activities. We promptly welcomed, seated and treated like family. The food is something special from white bean soup, shakshuka, humus with... More

Our family ate here late on a Friday afternoon. I wish we had found it earlier. The food was amazing and we plan on returning one more time before we leave. If you are planning on a Friday visit be sure to arrive before noon! They fix a certain amount of food and when it is gone, they close up.... More

Good classic Jerusalem place, come early - very affordable and authentic. The gas-burner food is especially good.
