Horse Garden
Uploaded by Evgeny Praisman

Today this place is called the Horse Garden and flea markets take place on Fridays. Once this place was located far enough away from the old city of Jerusalem. The first inhabitants of this area were the Jews. During a massive development along Ben Yehuda Street, Arab-Christian architect and contractor George Schieber purchased this site. In the late 1920s, he served as a football ground for the Hapoel Jerusalem team, but Schieber had big plans for building it. In the 1930s and 1940s, various programs were presented, which offered a theater, a cinema, a shopping center, a skyscraper and a hotel designed by the family of Erahmiel Amdursky. The Amdur were the owners of the famous Jewish hotel on Omar Square in front of the Yafsky Gate. In 1936, a deep excavation was dug to lay the foundation for an 8-story building, which was planned to be turned into a 15-story building in the future. With the beginning of the Great Arab Uprising in 1936, work was stopped and investors left the project. The remaining pit was called: "Pit Schieber." Translated with Google Translate

גן הסוס

In 1997, a sculpture in the form of a horse, called "The Horse of the World" was installed in the garden. At that time, everything was generally called and connected with the World. That was the euphoria. This horse was presented to Jerusalem by the Slovenian government on the occasion of the 3,000th anniversary of the founding of Jerusalem. During a protest against the high cost of living in Israel in 2011, the central tent of this protest demonstration was set up near the horse in this garden. Ironically, the high cost of living did not disappear, and a flea market appeared at the site of the tent. Translated with Google Translate

Horse Garden - Menorah Garden
Uploaded by Evgeny Praisman

Toward the end of the Second World War, interest in this complex again appeared. An Egyptian businessman wanted to build the tallest skyscraper in the Middle East here, and an Indian who served in the British army negotiated the purchase of a site, but they were unsuccessful. After the end of the war, the authorities of the English Mandate used this pit to arrest residents who occasionally violated the curfew imposed in the city. In 1950, the Israeli Knesset took its place in Beit Frumine, near the Schieber trench. The municipality of Jerusalem has studied the question of alternatives to the new building of the city hall. One option was Schieber's Pit, the advantages of which were both proximity to the Knesset building and its central location. In the end, the plan was postponed due to funding difficulties. According to another version, they say that because of ideological considerations, the mayor’s office did not leave its historic place on the border with the eastern city, which was under the control of Jordan. In the end, in order to somehow improve this hole, a public park was pitched here. In 1956, the British parliament presented the state of Israel with a gift - a bronze Menorah, made by the artist Benno Elkan. It was installed in a pit near the Knesset building, on May 15 of the same year, on the occasion of the eighth Independence Day of Israel, at a ceremony attended by thousands of people. Because of its location, the statue was named the Menorah of the Knesset, and the pit also received the nickname "The Garden of the Menorah." In 1966, the Knesset moved to its current location, and the Menorah of the Knesset was moved with him and placed in front of the main gate, at the foot of the Rose Garden.

basher
Uploaded by Evgeny Praisman

This store can be called a branch of the famous mvgazin in the heart of Market Makhane Judah. Simply, there are fewer people, more space, quieter, and you can choose from a while. The market of Mahne Yuda or simply “the market” - Shuk has many stories, and Basher Fromageri is the story of Cinderella. Since 1956, as many as two generations of the family of Eli Basher had a small restaurant on Mahna Yehuda, but Eli decided to take a different path. During a trip to France, he fell in love with the European culture of cheeses. Despite the fact that Eli grew up on traditional Jerusalem cuisine (and this family restaurant brought him the main means), he decided to take a chance and “bring the taste of Paris” to the very heart of the Jerusalem market. Basher Fromagerie is now well known outside of shuka and ranks among the best cheese shops in the country. Every month, Eli travels to Rungis, a huge wholesale market in the suburbs of Paris, to replenish his cheese empire with new varieties from Europe. Israeli dairy plants are also represented in the store. In addition to cheese, the store offers a variety of wines, imported beer, special sauces and seasonings, herring, Italian pasta, special types of bread and other high-quality delicacies.

Balagan (east west)
Balagan (east west)

This is the most famous and favorite store in Jerusalem with all the eastern food. They say that here is the most delicious ramen soup, the coolest unfiltered sake and the most authentic Japanese whiskey. In general, everyone who cooks oriental food is overloaded here.

Here Tavlinim
Here Tavlinim

Here we make it a small spice shop. One of many on the market and one of the few standing on the sidelines. This is not the famous Pereg, about which books have already been written and films made. This is not Fadida, who is also well advertised. These are not even Ethiopian spices. Here Tavlinim is high-quality spices for good cuisine before Saturday. Translated with Google Translate

Hachapuria
Uploaded by Evgeny Praisman

Khachapuri - Georgian national food. The name consists of two words: hacha - cheese and puri - dough. Five different regions of Georgia are famous for the different ways of making khachapuri. For example, along with the classic khachapuri, there are lacharuli khachapuri with fried eggs, or Megrelian khachapuri - yeast dough with cheese filling and a layer - of fried crust cheese in the oven. Here, the real Georgian atmosphere and khachapuri are cooked loudly, with humor and noise, perfectly fitting into the general atmosphere of the famous Jerusalem market "Mahane Yehuda". On Friday, menb is distributed to the queue so that everyone can place an order. Then send an SMS message while you are walking around the market that your order is ready.

Morduch
Uploaded by Evgeny Praisman

This place is not a restaurant. It does not fit into the modern understanding of restaurants. In fact, this is a restaurant home cooking. Iraqi cuisine or the Jewish community of immigrants from Iraq. It was opened on August 15, 1982, on Tuesday, a day that is considered twice a good day of the week, according to the creation of the world from the book of creation. The restaurant was opened by Itsik Agay and is named after his father, Mordechai, better known in the market as Mordokh. At the festive opening welcomed all residents of the area. Initially, there were only four tables, and at first the owners sought to fill only 16 chairs. Since then, much has changed, however, the kitchen and atmosphere remained the same. Of course, in the beginning there was no menu, and it so happened that the menu was created and changed every day according to the advice of clients - experienced shop owners in the market, people from Iraq. The regulars met each morning at the restaurant, so they were given the name "parliament", and they recalled the real tastes of Iraqi cuisine as they once knew from childhood. Their meeting was accompanied by market stories and they created a special atmosphere. This is how the modern menu developed, and especially the Kube soup. I sincerely advise you to try the soup and hummus. Translated with Google Translate

Teller's Bakery
Uploaded by Evgeny Praisman

Teller’s bakery is known to every Jerusalem woman. After several years of baking beautiful bread on Fridays on the eve of Saturday in Gush Etzion on the outskirts of Old Jerusalem, Avishai Teller founded a bakery and cafe in the heart of the Mahane Yehuda market. Teller bakes bread in the famous stone oven using traditional natural sourdough baking methods. Such luxurious hotels as, for example, King David and many restaurants began to buy Teller’s bread as their only pastry. Teller's best bread is: on the basis of a sourdough grain air and sweet tomato bread with a rich rustic texture. Along with bread, Hadas Ahlbeck, a talented pastry chef who studied at La Notre in France and in the USA, will delight with pastry baking - these are excellent cakes, buns and croissants.

Jerusalem knaffe
Uploaded by Evgeny Praisman

Knafay Ir David has been on the market for a long time, but is in demand among the adherents of kosher food. For they position themselves as Parve - that which can be eaten with meat and dairy. But first, what is knafe? Knafe (arab. كنافة) is a sweet dish. It comes from Schem. Knafe is made from Kadaif's vermicelli and goat cheese. Knafe, like baklava, is served with sugar syrup. An orange or red top knaph is created by adding food coloring. So, it is in the cnafe Ir David, they say that it is not only not of cheese (which allows it to be parve) but also without food dyes. Well, and for those who love the real knafe, walk a few more tens of meters and the most delicious Knafe Mahneuda will be waiting for you. Translated with Google Translate

Mr. Donuts
Uploaded by Evgeny Praisman

Mr. Donuts is a franchise of a famous American company. The plant is located in Kfar Saba, and here, in the market - point of sale. For me, it is a bit unusual that such a food industry enterprise appeared here - on one of the most authentic and authentic culinary fields of Israel - the Mahane Judah market. But apparently, everything is a place. There were not many buyers here, although Friday is the most market day. As for me, these donuts are not particularly attracted to purchase. Although, this is my personal opinion and, probably, it can be a delusion. Translated with Google Translate

Knafe Mahneuda
Knafe Mahneuda

And here is my favorite Knafe Mahneuda. Here they cook knafe right on the spot, just for you and decorate a portion with a wonderful piece of strawberries. In addition, roasted chestnuts, as it turned out great go with knaf. Here's a fusion of Shek Arab and Parisian French cuisine. Well, for special gourmets, in addition to a knaf, I advise a glass of arak with lemonade. All tastes start to play! Translated with Google Translate

So what about Saturday without wine? Wine shops "Nehemiah Brothers" are located in Jerusalem for 40 years. They started as a small wine shop founded by Joseph and Jacob Nehemiah. There are different wines, both Israeli wineries, and from around the world. And also various types of Israeli beer - at least 20. There are even Israeli whiskey, well, and about where it is made, from what water and how the idea was born - in the excursion to the Golan. Translated with Google Translate
