During the preparation of this trip, we spent quite a lot of time searching for great places to eat out. And Jerusalem got our attention, especially knowing that we would spend more time here. We had a very long list of places to check out for food and drinks, but here’s what we managed to try out and enjoyed a lot.
For us this was THE Restaurant. If you’re in search of delicious local, middle-east food, this is where to go. Everything in the menu is soooo delicious, from vegan and vegetarian dishes to the meat ones. Try first the soups, you will be amazed by what they have on the menu. From sweet, to sour and spicy, they have them all. The hummus is also great and has to be tasted, but also check out the beef sofrito or the baked eggplant stuffed with spicy minced meat.
We liked this place and the food here so much, that we went there two times. They are open only until 4PM so plan to go there for lunch.
If you’re in search of a meat feast, this is the right place to go. Morris is a small family restaurant right in the Mahane Yehuda Market. Expect all sorts of skewers, steaks (the lamb especially is very tasty), duck liver, bull testicles (must try!) or Moroccan sausages. All seasoned with all sorts of salads, spicy sauces and delicious hummus.
Don’t get fooled by the way this place looks, it’s a perfect example of the saying: Looks can be deceiving.
A rather new place in the area of the Mahane Yehuda Market, this is the place to satisfy all your craves. A mixture of recipes from all over the world, you will lick your fingers at every bite. Try also the local craft beers they have on tap, to complement the menu.
If you’re in search of authentic, tasty craft beer, than this is the best place to go. You will find here a great selection of bottled and on tap beer from all over Israel, but also Palestine and the rest of the world. It’s a hidden gem of Mahane Yehuda Market and one of the places that brings this market to life during the night.
This is a really cool place to go for a drink in Jerusalem. A small place, with great music and really cool people.
