Azura is home cooking, rich, oily, heavy, hearty food at its best. Situated in the beloved and maze-like Mahane Yehuda market, just behind the "Iraqi" part of the shuk, it has ample outdoor and indoor seating.

This is a great restaurant in the Irakian market which is in the Mahane Yehuda market. Food is very good and casual. Whenever I get to Jerusalem I go to eat there. I recommend the Sofrito.

My husband and I stopped here for lunch. Wow, were we pleasantly surprised. Small, no frills joint. Basically there is a small menu, all of "slow cooked" food. We had a meat and potatoes dish that I can't stop thinking about days later. They are only open til 5 or 6 pm.

The food we ordered included hummus with hot meat on top, slow cooked meat... More
