It seems as if things haven’t changed in the slightest since the 1960’s when this restaurant served its first customers. Maganda is situated just a 2 minute walk from the “Carmel Market” in the middle of the Yemenite Quarter and serves strictly Kosher traditional Yemenite and middle-eastern food such as a typical “calf feet soup” with Hummus, or lamb shishlik with Megadara (rice with lentils) with very affordable prices.
It is run by three brothers of the Habura family, a Yemenite family that has settled in the area back in the 1920’s, and is known for its kind hospitality, and authentic cuisine.
Large groups of people are gladly invited, as the overall experience is of a happy and communal vibe, and many of the courses such as the salads, Hummus, falafel and stuffed vegetables can be easily shared with others and with the help of the great Pita bread that’s being served alongside them.
