Nothing fancy here, just a bare table top with some mismatched chairs. The ENTIRE place has 6 tables crammed into a place barely large enough for 4, so if you want elbow room, find someplace else.
But if you love homecooked meals, this is the nearest you can get without going to grandma's house. The second photo here shows the cooking area...and I took the photo from my seat.
This is one place where you can enjoy the smells of the cooking almost as much as the actual food itself, it was a joy for the nose.

Favorite Dish: You can order several small portions to try out different things, we sat 6 at our table and each tried different things and we shared them all, not a single complaint.
I would recommend this to all my friends.

Address: Shuk Mahane Yehuda
Comparison: less expensive than average
Directions: They have no phone or website, but if you enter the market (shuk), just ask around a few times at the shops, someone will point you in the right direction.
Price: less than US$10
