Fodor's Expert Review Yakota

$$$$ Beersheva Moroccan

On a sleepy corner in the Old City sits this classic Moroccan restaurant, run by the same family since the 1960s. Though Yakota—decorated sumptuously in Moroccan textiles, hammered metal, and ornate tilework—often seems empty, the food is exceedingly fresh, creative, and delicious. Just say the word and chef Bebe will order for you, starting with a course of delicious house-made salads featuring seasonal ingredients like fennel, dates, and candied oranges, followed by simmering tagines of tender meat and vegetables (even local specialties like kmehin, a tuberlike desert root). For dessert, a local baker prepares a host of delicate petits fours, delivered to the table on a tiered metal tower alongside steaming mint tea.
