We will concentrate on the Eastern-European Jewish cuisine, its variations and in the process taste the traditional foods in the busy streets and establishments around the neighborhood. At the entrance of the Mea She’arim it doesn’t take long to realize one has entered a very different reality. Most of the Mea She’arim inhabitants are Orthodox Jews. To an outside observer they all seem very similar to each other and represent a homogeneous community, but contrary to first appearances it is a vibrant and actually, very diverse community. Common to all these communities and groups is a deep devotion to religion, tradition and a constant effort in keeping the generation old customs and ways of life continuing. It is not surprising at all that the culinary scene in the neighborhood is in tune with the aforementioned customs and traditions.
