Let's relax, it's just a syndrome.

Quite a few people come to the capital these days imbued with a purpose, imbued with a destination, imbued with a mission.

This is inspiring, of course, but also requires some adjustment of the schedule, and of the order of priorities.

So let's put it this way - the trip to Jerusalem does not require special planning or a special date, should not be dependent on an event, or subject to a special occasion, and definitely should not be labeled under "event".

Instead, just get in the car and drive, even now, and always.

In return, you will win what is probably the collection of the hottest people in Israel, and the collection of the best places in it.

They will wait patiently for you to finish demonstrating, they will accept you regardless of the content of the sign you are waving, and above all they will focus on what is good, and what is wrong.

No politician will be able to destroy that.

enjoy your meal!

The giant anchor of the legendary delicatessen chain was laid a few months ago not far from Mahane Yehuda market itself, and is worth a direct walk, if not a quick run, from the sometimes excessive mess there.

You can find here, among other things, everything.

Yes, everything.

Cheeses from around the world and from Israel along with a lot of wine and alcohol, excellent fresh and frozen breads, bitter olives and countless Mazats to put together a table.

At the end of the complex, deep inside, the main showcase awaits with all the good that Jerusalem has to offer, and some more, and an excellent breakfast menu will be served to you upstairs, or at the bar at the entrance.

Everything, we already said.

The small, bastard diner on Garage Street in the capital beckons you gently into it, only to see you stay and insist on polishing the bowls at the end of the wipe.

There is hummus here, of course, the thick, grainy and fresh kind, and there is hummus and kebabs, and mainly home-style food, without many statements and without much shouting.

You know, a big plate, with a lot of white rice, and even more red beans.

A spoon, and another spoon, and another, and you'll already know how to come back.

The urban surprise in the heart of a complacent neighborhood is seen from the side as a tourist trap who don't know any better, and with the help of just one glass manages to turn this perception into "how did we not know this thing was happening here".

It is, in the most natural way possible, a kind of coffee cart that is actually a wine wagon, with great service, great air, and a view that manages to give a match to the fullness of the glasses.

On the side, if you ask nicely, the visitor center itself awaits, restored and designed, and the whole business comes together in a glass, and in the heart, for a real life experience.

Brown Mahane Yehuda Hotel

The Mahane Yehuda branch of the large hotel chain that hosted us on this visit offers an almost unimaginable strategic location, but also much more than that.

The colorful entrance, only a few meters away from the hustle and bustle of the market, allows visitors to check in at appropriate stalls, with small tastings of the market (which come before the big tastings, of course) and with particularly happy Erek cups.

Upstairs, tight and clean rooms await, youthful in appearance and freed from traditional hotel respectability, as well as an almost panoramic balcony that looks down on the happy mess of Jerusalem, and provides a sea breeze without sea on the way.

Zedkiyo restaurant

The famous steakhouse in the capital has long since become a sweet and professional restaurant, but has been careful to do for 35 years what it knows how to do better than anyone else - host.

The service here is extraordinary even in Jerusalem terms, the tables collapse under small saucers and deep bowls, the hot tabon never stops heating the space inside and out, yet there is no factory feeling here, God forbid, but something small, intimate and very caring, that just wants you to taste it.

Mandatory stop.

The sweet pearl of Ranin, Eliana and Joan from Nazareth and Maum El Faham succeeds in making available their accumulated knapa knowledge from the north into one of the most successful dishes in Jerusalem.

The trio of women, who work at the same time at a philanthropic foundation, admire a modest kitchen and a small menu, but maximize them into a wonderful knafa, sweet only in moderation, and other traditional sweets (halawat al jaban, I'm talking about you) that keep you sitting on the chair long after you've closed the sweet corner.

The bar-restaurant in the green Independence Garden knows how to do a little (a lot) of everything, and knows how to do this thing well.

There are sweet cocktails here for those who want a drink, both small and huge portions for those who come hungry, and especially enough outdoor space for children and adults, for blankets and picnics.

And yes, both on Friday and Saturday, because you know you'll be looking for places like this on your next weekend here.

The open bar in the roof of Brown JLM provides a relatively rare rooftop experience in the capital, which is both foreign and completely local at the same time.

Here there are meticulous cocktails, small kitchen dishes and more serious food, ovens that will warm you even if the air wants to cool down a little too much, and above all A peripheral view that is nothing less than spectacular, and nothing less than a mast.

The little pink kingdom of the winner of the "perfect dessert" has already managed to put enough people in line since the opening, and we are here to remind (again, everything we wrote is still valid of course) that there are queues that are justified to stand in, and there are indulgences that cannot be judged.

Here you will find savory pastries that are both different and better than the norm, sweet and decadent siblings as well as colorful-invested inventions, both crazy and normal, which are within the scope of that bite you dreamed of all the way through traffic jams.
