Didn't realize how seriously people take their hummus or that hummus was considered a meal not a side dish. Tried Abu Hasan twice. A crazy colleague woke up at 7:30 to secure some hummus before our day of meetings and then our local host insisted we go here and it was worth the drive to Jaffa and quick wait in... More

We try to eat here at least once every time we come to Israel. It never disappoints. Love the musabacha, toss in the spicy yellow sauce, dip those sweet onions into the hummus. Best hummus ever. I have been eating here for years and years. One change I note now? Non Israelis who have read about Ali Karavan here or... More

I've been eating at this hummus place for years every time I visit TLV. Hands down this is the best hummus ever! It's always full on the weekends and many times there is a line but well worth the wait. Like most Hummus places it is as basic as it gets but the main event, which is the hummus and... More

We've had hummus all over the Middle East and this was the winner by far. If you are in Tel Aviv this is a must try for the experience (and low price!) Expect a line up, and don't forget to try the onion slice to dip in hummus

Eat and go Hummus,fries,falafel and sweet lemonade. A must visit for all Hummus lovers while in Tel Aviv/Yaffo. So delicious and if there's no available tables they will put you with other people and fill the tables everyone wants a dish of this fine Hummus before it runs out and the shop closes down for the day.

It is said that this is a no1 hummus in Israel. And it is. There is always a queue, but it is going quick and it is worth to wait. The waiters build the atmosphere of a local shuk, shouting the orders. It is a place for a quick hummus/falafel and leaving a table for others, but I come back... More

Everybody tells you this is the best Hummus in Israel - so we had to give it a try. We walked to the street-outlet of the very small restaurant (no chance to get a seat) and ordered various Hummus, which we received in a bag, together with Pita-Bread and cut onions, yes onions. We looked for a place nearby and... More

Try their MASABAHA, a mix of tahini and chick peas - a true delicacy. Their mix is also really good ("meshulash") - and it is hummus, masabaha and PHOUL
