You can't really discover Kerem without trying Yemenite food. What's on the menu? Yemenite soup, skhug, hilbe, jachnun, malawach and other traditional Yemenite dishes.
Classic Yemenite soup is made of beef meat, potato and a spice called Hawaij (mix of black pepper, cumin, cardamom, cloves, turmeric and coriander).
Skhug is a Yemenite hot sauce flavored with coriander seeds and leaves, cardamom, cumin, parsley, and chilli peppers.
Hilbe is a dip made of Fenugreek seeds or leaves, garlic, lemon juice, and various herbs and spices. It is considered to be very good for health (lowers blood sugar, helps in healing of wounds, gives strength), but it is very smelly! If you eat too much of it hilbe's smell can follow you for days, so be careful with it.
Jachnun is a slow-cooked rolled dough usually served with an egg and skhug.
Malawach is something similar to a pancake, but consisting of thin layers of puff pastry brushed with oil or fat and cooked flat in a frying pan. Usually served with tahini, za'atar, olive oil or even honey.
