While exploring the Machaneh Yehuda market at night I found this place to have the biggest line of waiting customers, this along with the interesting style the food was being made at drew me in. I was seeing multiple pans on the stove, what came out of it were fluffiest pancake/crepes I have ever seen, after a minute these were 1/3rd of their original thickness and then were topped with delicious ingredients such as tehina, hummus, eggplant, fried onion, pickles and more. They, in turn, were served as rolls called Memulawach, these tasted like heavenly. It’s supposed to be a Yemenite street food and a must have when in Jerusalem.

Its perfect for vegetarians and vegans

This is my first time in Jerusalem and loved this place. The memulawach is the best! Just ask for the memulawach with everything and enjoy!

I’ve been eating here for 2 years and have never once had a bad meal. They get super busy, which I think is a positive thing because the food stays fresh. They also serve amazing soup during the winter!

This modest but warming bar offers some dishes that tourists might not have tried before.

The person running the place is such a kind and cool dude that one may feel like at home. He is always eager to give his best and suggest a suitable meal accoring to the visitors' likes.

As regards the food itself, the menu is modest but there are enough dishes to make the day. Meals are prepared on demand and products look really fresh.

A highly recommended place to eat out with friends or family. Visitors will experience a flood of flavours in theiur mouths.

Jahnoun is fun, fast, Yemenite street food. It is totally yummy. But I go for the soup which is inexpensive and soooo tasty! Ask for some zchug to spice it up!
