The Machane Yehuda Market has anything of everything. Even when you think that you have seen everything it has to offer, a place like Knaf has pops up - where you can taste Knafeh with meat and beetroot tahini.

The Knaf is a small place on HaEgoz Street, in the heart of the beloved Machane Yehuda market. In Knaf, you can try the local twist on one of the most beloved desserts in Israel and Jerusalem in particular: a meaty Knafeh made of Kadaif noodles ingrained with slowly cooked meat – the whole preparation and cooking process is done in the open, right in front of the visitors and patrons.

The local variation of Knafeh is available with beef and asado stuffing, as well as in a vegan version. All are served with special home-made sauces and a pickle dish.
