A Taste of Jerusalem – Jerusalem

The Old City is as much defined by its tastes and smells as it is by its holy sites. Each quarter has its own distinct scent and flavor. In the Muslim quarter I tried Knafeh (first three photos), a Middle Eastern “cheesecake,” made of fried goat cheese topped with fried sugar, flour, and pistachio nuts and it was delicious. Along the streets of the Old City you can find vendors selling an assortment of desserts and candies, and fruits and herbs and vegetables. But the most eye-catching foods would be the meat skewers sizzling at corners.
