Jacko's Street, located in the Mahane Yehuda market, is a kosher chef restaurant owned by three friends---Zakai Hodja, Rafi Revivo and Yotam Nisim. Hodja formerly worked as a chef at some of Jerusalem's leading restaurants including Canela, Angelica and Lara, and even worked with esteemed Israeli chef Shalom Kadosh. Revivo and Nisim have extensive experience in Jerusalem's nightlife scene and have also managed a number of cafes.

The three chose to open the restaurant in Mahane Yehuda out of a desire to transform the market into a lively and enjoyable area for Jerusalem tourists and locals.

Jacko's Street boasts an open kitchen allowing you to watch the chefs prepare your dish, which is part of the experience. The menu consists of a broad variety of dishes such as a salmon ceviche with cucumber and black sesame seeds with a shallot vinaigrette and a melon wasabi sauce; risotto with celery, chard, lemon and green garlic; fresh red mullet pan fried in preserved lemon, Kalamata olives, asparagus, fried eggplant and tomato salsa; and smoked duck sautéed in caramelized onions and mushrooms on top of a foccacia bread and a citrus salad.

Desserts include a ravioli filled with pastry cream and chocolate sauce with caramel, coffee and vanilla truffles and a Krembo (an Israeli marshmallow and cookie treat) on top of a kadaif pastry with a toffee and limoncello sauce.

Friday is a unique day since the restaurant is closed from Friday evening for Shabbat. You can enjoy a homey, light menu and Greek music.

The restaurant has a large bar with 12 seats and a small bar with five more places where diners can be served directly from the kitchen. There is also a gallery floor uniquely decorated with street signs and big sofas for relaxing.

    One of the best restaurants in Jerusalem! Lots of great options on the menu inspired by Kurdish cuisine. Order the dessert platter for a fun musical performance!

    We heard a lot about this place and finally decided to go and try it out. Everything was 10/10 but I have to say I was underwhelmed by the food. Not the presentation (because that was great, as you can tell by the images)...
