For years I'd heard of this excellent, simple low-price meat restaurant Rachmo. It's just off the the main part of the Mahane Yehuda Open Air Market, which has gone rather yuppy or upscale in recent years.

Interestingly has רׇחְמוֹ nowhere in its restaurant a transliterated spelling. I would write it as Rachmo where the second character is a chet and thus more a ch sound, but on TripAdvisor it is known as Rahmo. It seems that next to the market location there is also a location somewhat closer to the old city on Yoel Moshe Salomon... More

Great place to eat Iraqi cousin. Try to mix between the backed food and side dishes such as the great rice.

Great local food. Don't expect anything fancy- a very simple plan for simple people who admire amazing food. Great social experience with very fun mix of guest. One of my favorites while in town.

Very simple establishment, always very crowded during lunch time, famous for oriental Jewish cooking taking advantage of the fresh produce from the near-by Mahane Yehuda Market. you cannot reserve a table there, self-service oriented, ask for today's dish as it is changing daily. sharing a table with a merchant from the market is normal, don't try to look for a...
