The Bulghourji restaurant and Lounge was opened in 2004 by the Kalajian family who has been living in Jerusalem since the fifteenth century. Bulghourji is located in the walls of the Old City of Jerusalem, two minutes walk from the Jaffa Gate. The word Bulghourji means “the person preparing the burghul” and once one learns that the stunning ancient building that the restaurant is located in was once a burghul factory the name comes as no surprise.

Bulghourji is famous for it’s fantastic Armenian dishes- all meat-based dishes that are traditionally prepared and authentic home cooking. Fine wines, fresh salads, meats, breads, classic Middle-Eastern dishes and of course the famous burghul dish are all served with a smile in this high-class restaurant. The warm atmosphere, unique flavors and family feel makes a visit to Bulghourji obligatory.

Hello reader. My name is Charlotte Noris and I am sure that you will definitely enjoy my blog. Do you know why? All because on the pages you will see bright and colorful photos, as well as useful information. My husband and I are freelancers, so we can travel at any time of the year. For myself, I most often plan tours in advance, but it also happens that the trip turns out to be spontaneous when I see an interesting place and a nice price. At the age of 35, I have visited more than 30 countries and do not plan to stop there. I want to visit all continents and the most secret corners of our planet.
