    Aroma: Good Cafe

    by HJIL Updated Feb 18, 2005

    You can find Aroma cafes at a lot of places, including the shopping mall, Hillel Street in the center of town (two blocks from ben Yehuda), Emek Refaim street and the new one by the University in Mount Scopus (this is the nicest one). It is just a cafe but I love it. Their sandwiches are interesting, get your sandwich with onion bread.

    Favorite Dish: Haloumi cheese sandwich is really good. Get 'cafe Aroma' the house coffee, it is like cappuchinno but with a ton of chocolate and cream in it, you don't have to add any sugar. Or just get a cappuchino.

    Inbal Hotel Atrium: The Reception

    by Goner Written Jul 18, 2003

    Our tour was due for another dinner at the Inbal Hotel, it was the night of the wedding and the dinner became a reception. It was set up in the atrium decorated with huge containers of flowering plants. The tables were laden with every Middle Eastern dish and the chefs cooked on barbeques and served the meat piping hot.

    The meal was included in our tour package so I'm unable to quote any prices.

    Favorite Dish: The barbequed lamb, beef and chicken were mouthwatering.

    Omelet: Unique and tasty

    by Cruiseone2003 Written Feb 24, 2010

    I was looking for some cheap eats for breakfast and stumbled on this place called "Omelet" on Jaffa road just a block or two from the bus station going towards the old city (away from the suspension bridge) on the left side.

    it's small place, can seat about 5 people on bar stools, two nice young guys were working, they spoke English and answered my numerous questions about the type of food they were serving. I ended up with a sandwichcalled shashouka which was full of pickled veggies on a baguette then stuffed with a light chili sauce and eg.,Iin shor,t it was one big messy but delicious sandwich, washed it down with a nice cappucino and it didn't break the bank. There were other items on the menu that I wish I could have tried but one can only eat so much!!

    Favorite Dish: Only tried the Shashouka (I think that's how you spell it)

    The Levy Bro's: Best Falafel in Jerusalem

    by Cruiseone2003 Written Feb 25, 2010

    Let me just start by saying I love local, authentic, great tasting street food that is affordably priced and the Levy Bro's did not let me down. Located at the Machne Yehuda Market (Open Market) I took notice that there was a constant line of customers purchasing food from this stand. I did a google search on the name and found the following story along with a few other choices of eateries in the Market area:

    I went back and bought a falafel sandwich and I thought it was the perfect blend of herbs, spices, consistency and the kosher pickle was great!
    Best way to find this place is if you are entering from Jaffa, this is the first row of the market furthest from the Old City, go all the way to the other end of the market and the Levy Bro's are just outside of the gate entrance. Bon Appetit

    Favorite Dish: Falaffel with everything

    Favorite Dish: In Jerusalem, along the outer wall, I had the best Falafals that I've ever eaten. Well, I hope so, it IS the national dish!! I just haven't found any that compare since.

    The best (and probably most expensive...) restaurant in Israel. Located in an old stone house with a beautiful court and serving French food with an Israeli touch.

    Favorite Dish: Everything!

    Fast food

    I rather avoid the trade mark fast food while in Jerusalem as you can have those all over the world. The local falafel and kebab are good enough as a snack or even as full meal sometimes.

    The very best restaurant we experienced was located just outside Bethlehem. We had some fantastic barbequed meat. Our advise is 'try it'.

    Pitta im Zatar

    by jacobzoethout Written Jun 19, 2007

    Whenever in the Jewish Quarter, you better choose a pitta with zatar and labaneh from this bacery then from the other too touristy pizza and felafel places. It is close to the Cardo.
