"I VISITED THIS PLACE"...
... while going to and returning from the annual pre-dawn Grand Hosanna ritual of pounding the willow branches at the Western Wall (see my "helpful" photos of the pre-dawn temporary stall on the walkway of the mall for selling the willow branches).
The second, time, we had a business meeting.
Both times, I wandered around, made observations for this tripadvisor note and took (hopefully "helpful" photos).
This place has the largest density of quality restaurants in the city- take advantage of that and have a meal while you are there.
I can recommend Cafe Rimon (milky), Cafe Greg (milky), Roladin (milky) and Aroma (milky)- you can see my "helpful" recent reviews of the first two.
I also have posted for you a very recent review of Kedma, which is meaty and outstanding.
As far as "stuff" in the stores- eh, that's expensive.
Please be sure to take note of where you parked (there is also the municipal Karta garage under there- take a photo of the identifying pillar (see my "helpful" photos from previous visits) and take note of where you came out on the pedestrian mall of the shopping area- when trying to leave by car, you will thank me.
