  • We love eating here. There are many small restaurants and food stalls. The vendors are very nice and don't mind speaking in English. Delicious food and tantalizing spices. Cannot visit Jerusalem without making a stop here.
  • Every person that is ever in Israel must pay a visit to this magical and wonderful place. The people, the smells and the brilliant food all together make into one experience that rivals with no other. This is the best place to interact with the fabric that makes Jerusalem what it is.
