Moroccan sandwiches stall. The stall is designed in a cool, modern way. They offer a varied sandwiches menu that can also be suitable for vegans.
In their options of sandwiches you can find: beef cutlets, lamb cutlets, fish cutlets, chicken cutlets, vegetable fritters and beetroot fritters. With the sandwich you also get a salad on the side and soda pop. The price range is between 32-35 shekels.
We tried the fish cutlet sandwich. It came inside a great bun and with tahini, matbucha (a salad with Moroccan origins), spicy, parsley, tomato, and pickled lemon (of course you can change the toppings if you want). The fish was so delicious and all the flavours combined really well, and the salad was also very good. The meal was filling and it’s a nice option for a light, inexpensive, and very tasty meal.
They also have another branch in Haifa.

Great bar with a large and varied menu of beers and special beers. This is the place to come and grab a beer and something tasty to eat. In their menu they offer small dishes, medium-sized dishes and large dishes.
Example of dishes from the menu: taramosalata with onion and bread, garlic bread with tahini and tomato, fish dish- hering, Matthias, and smoked Plamida with sour cream, vegetables and bread. The prices range between 9-42 shekels
We tried the taramosalata and it was great with the beer. We tasted some of the beers and really liked a beer that in the menu they call “Dodash’cha” (your aunt).
Every month they have theme days like Indian night, unlimited beer night, etc.
Every Monday they add special vegan dishes to the menu. And on Friday afternoon the atmosphere there is awesome.
They also have a beer stall in the heart of the market. And they have other branches in Habima, Tel Aviv, and the Machane Yehuda market in Jerusalem.

Examples of dishes from the menu: Salmon/Matthias with sour cream and vegetables, shakshuka with goat cheese, stuffed vine leaves on tzatziki, spicy roasted vegetables.

We ordered the roasted vegetables and an Asher’s sandwich (the chef’s special sandwich). The two dishes were very good and the sandwich was juicy and spicy with great olives on the side. It’s a great place for a meal and drink

Uzi-Eli the etrogman

Uzi-Eli’s famous citrons shop is a refreshing place in the Hacarmel market that sells varied types of therapeutic juices for the body. They also sell lotions and sprays.
You can choose a juice from the varied options or ask them to make you something else according to the fruits and vegetables that you want.
I like to choose from the ones that have already been prepared and it is also nice because you can choose a small glass for 5 shekels.
You can also ask to taste the juice before you buy it.
All the juices I tried were very good and with unique flavors.
They have another branch in the Mahane Yehuda market in Jerusalem that has been open for more than 20 years.
