Yudale is the place to go if you are looking for a joyful, slightly wild place to eat or drink. Like its older brother, Machane Yehuda, Yudale varies its menu in keeping with what’s available on the market, and you can be sure that you will only eat super-fresh products here. Everything happens around the bar where the cooks are busy creating the dishes that will delight you as you watch. The atmosphere is a joyous hubbub of noise and flames that create a real show. Often presented as a tapas bar, Yudale does indeed serve small portions which seem to be proportional to the size of the kitchen. However, they also have more sophisticated, very original dishes such as the grilled calamari with garlic and lubia which has a fantastic texture; it’s served with a creamy okra bamia sauce, refreshing green onions and crispy grilled garlic. The wolfish sashimi, served on a thick yellow gazpacho, is covered with a patch of green. It is extremely fresh and perfectly seasoned. The fish brochette is on a Kurdish pita with a mix of charred peppers, covered with yogurt and sumac. It’s both spicy and delicate, with each mouthful blending all the flavors for a very harmonious taste. People come here to soak up the market atmosphere, appreciate the beautiful oriental music, and above all, to revel in the exceptional dishes prepared as you watch.
