My lunch at work usually contains a salad or if I really put in an effort some home made food. Two weeks ago I was in Jerusalem for work purpose and my host, Dror, suggested we will go to the Machnea Yehuda market. I was actually thinking about “Caffe Mizrahi” but the cab driver suggested a place that is consider as “institutes” in Jerusalem – Morduch.
Mechna Yehuda’s Market
We have order the “salads” for sharing and I took the Red Kube Soup – “Out most poplar” as the menu suggested. The Kube (or Kibbeh according to Wikipedia) is “an Levantine dish made of bulghur, minced onions and ground red meat, usually beef, lamb, goat or camel”.
All in all, it was a tasty and unusual lunch for me after which I wanted to take a nap, unfortunately I had to go back to work.

Recently we have celebrated our second anniversary. We have decided to celebrate it a short weekend at Emek HaElah (Valley of Elah) including sleep in Ein Kerem at Montana Boutique hotel.
When we go on vacation we love to plan it in advanced, searching the internet for the best hotel, the most successful restaurants and exciting places to visit. When we have planned this short trip we knew that eating in this area on Friday night will be challenging as most of the places in Jerusalem are closed due to kosher limitations. We booked in advanced a table for two for the hottest spot (and almost the only place open) in town – Muna.
Muna is a well-known institute in Jerusalem that lately was handover to a new ownership by the people of Machneyuda. While the Machneyuda restaurant have the market vibe, Muna is the older respectful sister among the two. We were offered seven portion tasting meal that was served one by one with long breaks. A dinner in the full sense of the word.
And now for the excuses section in this post – it have been a while since we ate there and not all the courses that were served appear on the menu. The chef is creating the dinner for you according to what you love or hate, so we decided to show you all the portion without too much explanation about each and every dish. We will just say that we have enjoyed every portion, some we liked more and some less but overall all of them were tasty and original for us.
The Check please – 630NIS
