Very good shakshuka and excellent hummus. Reasonable prices as for Jerusalem. Small portions, if you need big one is choice for you.

We found this place from the Tripadvisor reviews and we were not disappointed. The humus, falafel and meat skewers were delicious. If we had been in Jerusalem for more days, we would have come here again for sure.
