“Definitely not a touristy place”
Reviewed February 3, 2014

Just off to the Carmel Market (which is worth visiting on Tuesday and Friday when there is an arts and crafts market adjacent to the real market) this is a small place frequented by the locals. We overheard 3 men who said they come to this place because it serves the best haira soup outside of Morocco. Today I ordered a warm Jamilla sandwich, which had ground beef with onions and a salad embedded between 2 slices of great bread. My husband opted for a chicken tagine, with onions and raisin. We were served tachini, potato salad beet salad and rice for side dishes. Simple, good, and the damage for 2 was under 100 shekels. Can't beat the price of a fallafel or shawarma, but a nice change. The menu,which is not too big, changes daily, and includes various kinds of couscus. We visit the place every time we are in Tel Aviv.
