NileGuide Expert Says:
Best place to sample the authentic mixed Jerusalem grill.
NileGuide Expert tip:
In early 2012, Hatzot, the iconic meat restaurant that almost invented the famous "me-urav yerushalmi" meat dish-- a mix of five or six different kinds of grilled meats served in a pita or laffa with a multitude of salads--took over the store next door to its original spot, and opened a trendy new addition. The new Hatzot has updated decor (including a ceiling lined with doors from the nearby market) and two kitchens: one for appetizers and one for entrees. A lively atmosphere and swift service make this a winner in the crowded Machane Yehuda restaurant scene.
