If you are looking for traditional Middle Eastern food, though, the best of the bunch may be Azura — a family-run institution in the Iraqi market famous for its Turkish-inspired delicacies that are slow-cooked to perfection atop kerosene burners.

Now spread across an entire cobblestone courtyard, the eatery offers a taste of old Jerusalem with an array of soups, salads and specialty dishes. But when it comes to Middle Eastern food, one dish will always reign supreme — hummus. Azura’s version is creamy, soaked in oil and sprinkled with parsley and warm chickpeas that melt in your mouth.

Of course, there is much more to Azura than hummus. Most of the food is simple, but rich in cultural history that reflects the various ethnic backgrounds that make up modern Jerusalem, including Iraqi, Turkish and Tunisian influences
