Azura is one of Mahane Yehuda's most iconic and celebrated eateries. Over the years it has transitioned from a working class joint to a hotspot for locals of all ages and backgrounds and a regular stop for tourists who come for its authentic atmosphere, famous hummus, kube and other North African homestyle cooking. 

You can find Azura in the winding alleyways of the Iraqi Shuk in the Mahane Yehuda Market.
