The Machane Yehuda market in Jerusalem is an exciting place to shop, tour and taste delicious food. It is an iconic landmark that makes Israel’s capital what it is today. With a modern flare that combines the old with the new, featuring coffee shops, a modern bar selling beer on tap and a mobile phone accessories store, the market is very trendy. Here are a few popular places to eat that represent what the marketplace has become today.
Morris is one of the more unique places that can be found at the market. It has two locations, one is in the heart of the market between two butcher shops, and the other, which is a nicer venue, is located on the outskirts of the marketplace. For those who want the full experience, try both. You can enjoy your meal while listening to Greek music in the restaurant outside the market, or the sounds of butchers preparing fresh cuts of beef prepared for service inside the market. The menu includes a fresh selection of salads and a variety of grilled meats including steaks, skewered meats, chicken, turkey, sweetbreads, duck livers, chicken hearts and many more.

Baladag Fish And Chips
Appropriate for any marketplace, Fish and Chips is a very popular spot in the heart of the market. All of the fish is fresh from the market, tasting just like the classic fish and chips that you would find anywhere around the world. The restaurant uses a variety of fish, which is a nice addition to the classic cod, including tuna, red mullet, salmon and more. You can have your fish either tempura-battered or coated in panko breadcrumbs topped with a lemon wedge, and if you are in an Elizabethan mood, order the dish topped off with melted cheddar cheese.
