Mehane Yuda: "The in-place of 2011" Jerusalem Restaurant Tip by leffe3

Jerusalem Restaurants: 132 reviews and 195 photos


Spread over two levels with the balcony overlooking the main dining area, eclectic in style and eclectic in its menu, Mehane Yehuda is currently one of the places to be seen.

Close to the main market of the city means produce is collected early in the morning and what's best determines the menu of the day - it can change almost hourly!

It's diverse in choice and is likely to please almost everyone - if you can get a table. It's on the frantic side so don't expect a quiet romantic dinner for two, but with the chefs in the open kitchen on the ground floor frequently bursting into song or 'playing' the kitchen utensils, it's full of energy, fun and superb food.

Favorite Dish: Menus change frequently, but the menu box 'We love vegetarians' alongside mouth-watering lumps of meat and fish give you an idea that they really love their food. Salads are excellent as is the "Wooden Block" for vegetarians (although for some reason meat is featured on the platter - make sure you tell the waitress and they'll either remove it or serve it in a dish) and the Okra Moaz fantastic. But then so are the meatballs served with humus and tahina and the bread in little paper bags....
