This place is hidden inside the Iraqi Shuk of the historic hundred year old Mahaneh Yehuda Market (Shuk Mahaneh Yehuda) - a very historic neighborhood and bazaar that housed Jewish refugees from all over the Middle East when the State of Israel was just forming. Azura's dishes are slow-cooked on paraffin stoves which supposedly lend to a unique flavor. Very tasty, home style dishes from the Jewish Kitchens of the region are served here. The eggplant dishes such as mussaka and their signature dish (can't remember the name) are both tasty - I didn't like their side dish of okra - I definitely make it better at home. I also very much like their hummus. I think that it's just as good as any hummus place in The Old City. The food is a little pricey I must say. On Friday, the place turns into a factory. Diners come in and are quickly shuffled out once they finish eating. In the hot summer, large industrial sized fans blow air and water mist on the diners outside in the plaza and old men play backgammon (shesh besh) Crowd is overwhelmingly locals... Good to try at least once.
