“The Mehniuda Restaurant is a Mediterranean and seasonal market restaurant in the Mahane Yehuda market, where three Jerusalem chefs who also own the place are collaborating: Asaf Granit, Yossi Elad and Uri Navon. The special collaboration of three richly-renowned chefs intensifies the culinary creation, each expressing its own style in the restaurant, creating both a complex and straightforward Jerusalem cuisine - meticulous, accurate, direct and not sophisticated. In each serving, one chef leads the tone in the kitchen, and the others line up and function as regular cooks. There you will find a variety of dishes under Israeli and Mediterranean influences.”

“The publisher's restaurant, the chef's restaurant of Avi Levi, is housed in an old 100-year-old Jerusalem stone house, near the Mahane Yehuda market, and serves authentic, comforting and satisfying home food at a fair price. The menu at the restaurant shows the best of the chef's kitchen, which combines North African roots cooking style with Jerusalem cuisine which is the product of Kibbutz Galuyot.”

“The Burger Market is the trendiest place to eat a burger in Jerusalem, and quite by accident located near the vibrant and beloved Mahane Yehuda market. From the moment you enter, you will be greeted by smiling staff and the impressive design that fills the ceiling and walls of the Burger Market with green vegetation to connect you to the fresh atmosphere of the market. The authentic and meticulous design creates a special dining experience, with an unusual atmosphere you will not find outside of Jerusalem. In the background you can listen to the best hits from the 90's to today.”
