Off Beat Restaurants in Jerusalem

If you're willing to explore the back alleys of the Old City, the ins and outs of the Machane Yehuda market or the streets of the Talpiyot commercial neighborhood, you'll be rewarded with some of the best home-cooked style food in Jerusalem. In the Muslim Quarter of the Old City look for the places where the locals are eating--you'll be welcomed with warm hospitality. In Machane Yehuda, check out the side streets and connecting alleys for places with a few tables and some simmering pots--and get ready to sample the freshest, tastiest and most creative stuffed vegetables, braised meats and superb rice dishes. In Talpiyot, follow your nose to the best shwarma, kebabs and mixed grill.
