Last weekend, Haaretz had a piece about Al-Jamila, a fairly new restaurant in Jaffa, right by the flea market. Their piece made Al-Jamila sound so interesting we decided to give it a try ourselves, the same day we read the piece. And a fine experience it was too! The food is both original and impeccable, and the same goes for the decor.

If you’d like to eat in the vicinity of the Jaffa fleamarket (that definitely has its own, very unique vibe), Al-Jamila is definitely an excellent choice. We can especially recommend the Arabic dumplings as well as the Fattoush salad, both amazing!

The place also seems to have quite a lot of wine, but we did not try any. The selection looked really nice though!

You will find Al-Jamila on Oley Zion 4, right by the Jaffa fleamarket, but unfortunately we haven’t been able to find a website for them (in English or Hebrew) where you could take a look at their menu.
