Situated right in the center of Mahane Yehuda Market in Jerusalem, Azura is a legendary restaurant that offers a wide selection of homemade food

More than a budget restaurant, this place, which has been open for over 25 years, is one of Jerusalem’s real gems and a favorite with many local celebrities. Preparing a variety of Kurdish, Iraqi and Sephardic dishes, which are kept warm in huge pans placed on kerosene stoves, Azura promises all who enter a wholesome and tasty meal.
On the menu you will find large meatballs in a fresh tomato sauce, freshly prepared humus, Sephardi chicken stew, Kubbeh soup (ground meat and semolina dumplings in a lemony broth) and many other Middle Eastern delicacies.
This authentic place is extremely popular with locals and out of town visitors, which means finding a place to sit and eat might not be that easy. However, good things do come to those who wait. The service is swift and if you come in a small group (1-4 people) you might be seated next to other hungry guests.

In short:
An authentic and inexpensive taste of Jerusalem right in the center of the famous Ben Yehuda Market.

    When I saw a post on Jerusalem I sprang up to quickly see if this place, the name I couldn't remember, would be mentioned and it was, Azura restaurant.
    I went last year, with two girlfriends.. both foodies, all the way from Sydney Australia and we loved this place. We were allowed in the kitchen to see for ourselves all the wonderful pots on the stove. It was May so we sat comfortably outside basking in the delight of being amongst it all in the Ben Yehuda market and relishing this lucky find; hidden from the high street tourist's guide books.
