A paradise for those who love the Far East
A great new trend is starting to take off in the heart of Jerusalem’s Mahane Yehuda Market, and Street Market and Wok Market are leading the fabulous Asian Food Court.
Street Market offers Israelis a wide variety of foods from the Far East, and is an absolute paradise for those who love sushi and other Asian foods. Here, you’ll be able to find dim sum and koyo (steamed dumpling) dishes, eggrolls, and samosa (Indian fried dumplings), as well as skewered yakitori and bao sandwiches (steamed Asian rolls with any of a variety of toppings).
Street Market’s surprising Israeli twist
Some of Street Market’s dishes have been influenced by the shuk, and the surprising result will make you ask why no one thought of it sooner. How about a sushi roll with sabich, chraime, or falafel? And why didn’t anyone think of making a bao sandwich with grilled chicken pullets in tehina-yuzu sauce?
Much of Street Market’s foods are served traditionally, just as they would be if you were in the Far East. And the restaurant’s atmosphere has been carefully created to give you an authentic feeling of both the Far East and the Mahane Yehuda shuk.
As would be expected from a top-rate restaurant with ethnic-themed alcohol, Street Market has special beers imported from the Far East, as well as sake and Japanese prune wine. Plus, the Israeli-Asian street wine is sold only in Street Market and Wok Market.
The two stands – only a few meters from each other, – are leading the Asian Food Court, under the auspices of Sushi Rehavia chain. Sushi Rehavia’s owners have a decade of experience and own several Asian and sushi restaurants in different locations.
