Azura - Jerusalem

Restaurants Mediterranean Machne Yehuda

One of the city’s must-visit spots for kosher home-cooked food. The first thing you will notice are the oversized pots on the stove, a staple in many Israeli homes. Azura serves favorites that you won’t find anywhere else: a warm and soothing “goulash”, several varieties of “kubbeh” (meat-stuffed dumplings in a warm soup), and a hearty “moussaka” (eggplant pie) alongside many varieties of meats. This no-frills cooking hits the spot while showcasing the diversity of Middle-Eastern food. Pick some up before the weekend, and you’re set for your Friday night dinner!
