Kosher restaurant with authentic culinary approach

HaMotzi is a kosher restaurant in Jerusalem, opened in 2012 in one of the picturesque alleyways of the Mahane Yehuda Market.Recently, the restaurant moved to its new and charming location, an ancient building on 113 Jaffa Road.The restaurant offers a fresh yet authentic culinary approach to the North African cuisine — manifested by fabulous tastes, aromas and colors — while creating a cultural experience of traditional Algerian cuisine combined with local elements. The restaurant is influenced by chef Avi Levy’s varied character and personal experiences – from his childhood in Jerusalem’s Musrara neighborhood, through various stages in his life and the unique culinary influences he drew from his travels around the world in search of gastronomic inspiration.
All these come to life through each unique decoration on the walls and throughout the restaurant, items that Chef Avi collected during his fascinating journeys.

HaMotzi is located in an ancient building, previously used by the Etz Haim (Tree of Life) seminary the past 150 years. The ethnic design, which evidently absorbed strong North African influences, is evident in every corner of the two-story restaurant. As you enter you are welcomed by a sprawling mural on the restaurant’s central wall, which sets the atmosphere. The mural represents Levy’s life and his various culinary influences, including his grandmother. This painting defines the character of the restaurant — the deep connection to Avi’s roots..
