Christian tour Jerusalem Holy SepulchreThe streets bear mostly tourist souvenir shops. Most worthy are the Aramaic pottery shop of Eli Kouz ,  his nefew’s olive wood artwork store (George Kouz Store), Zack’s shop of antiquities , Photo Elia  and Bilal Fabric Store .

Most of its food places are mediocre-bad falafel and Shawarma stands. Try to avoid them, and look for good Hummus at places like the well hidden Hummus Nazmi (the best!), Hummus Abu Kamel Hummus Lina  or Hummus Abu-Shukri .

For dessert go to Zalatimo  or Jafar sweets  in the Muslim Quarter .
