It's indeed a very special place, in between the different shops and stalls. We sat just in front of an old-style butcher and a spice shop in which we made some shopping afterwards. People stop by with their shopping carts. The atmosphere is special and nice, except for a bit too much of a "wannabecool" feeling.
Now for the food - we tried only beens stew and a Shakshuka. They were both ok - not more than that. The beens stew contained the same amount of beans and carrot - which wasn't much - and was based, so I suspect, on the same tomato sause that the Shakshuka was made of. So I wander why don't name it just a tomato soup. My guess? They wanna be cool (-; The Shakshuka had it's own turnoff - it was baked in the oven, so it feels, to give it a crispy top, but it became rigid and not crispy.
If you are in the Machane Yehuda marketplace, I absolutey recommend you to go there to have coffee or a bottle of wine, like we did. But if you're hungry, maybe you should think twice.
