This is the real deal: the best place to have Hummus in Tel Aviv, it’s a must for any person visiting City!

We went there upon suggestion from a local gentleman. He gave us a few choices but we went to the cheapest choice he have us. The staff are friendly and the meal is lovely and very reasonable. The place is relatively clean. We all enjoyed...having a meal there.More

Good luck parking but it’s worth the effort. You’re likely line up, it moves fast, and to sit with strangers but that’s part of the pleasure. You sit where they want, order your hummus etc and blissfully enjoy it along with their wonderful pita and...spicy mixture in a small bowl. Have the hummus as you like it, with raw onion and foule for the taste treats. Talk to your neighbours or not, up to you. The mixture of people, cultures and food embodies Israel, it really should not be missed.More

The humus is good but in my opinion there are better places near by. The restaurant is very crowded and not allways pleasant

A work colleague brought myself and some other international visitors here, as apparently it was “the thing to do” whilst in Tel Aviv. Clearly a very local place, but tourists do come here through word-of-mouth. Note they ONLY sell hummus and pita – so it...may not fulfill everyone’s taste buds or dietary requirements (we had a gluten-free person in our group and it unfortunately didn’t work well for her). Service was speedy – but be prepared: if you’re in line, you better order fast. People will push in and take your place! We each ordered a small tub of hummus with two pitas. The hummus (three different types) was still warm when it was served and was delicious – but wow, that’s a lot of hummus to try and eat in one sitting! I don’t know if it’s the “best hummus in the world” as it claims – it was definitely pretty good, but I also haven’t tried all the hummus in the world. The pita was sooooo fresh and simply delicious. There wasn’t any seating available when we visited, so we took take-out and headed to the beach to eat it. Be prepared to take your “meal” with you, simply due to lack of seating in the small restaurant.More

Basically this is the best hummus I've ever had, personally. Is it the best hummus in Tel Aviv Israel? I mean probably there are other great places. We were told to go because our daughter's "vloggers" said it was a must do. They seat you...(next to strangers) because it's a very small space. I gather there are 3 types of hummus.. smooth, chunky and spicy. Since we had no clue the waiter didn't really ask so my husband got a chunky and I got a smooth. Each person gets pita (actually it is much fluffier and more delicious than any US pita)some spicy sauce and chunks of onion slices. It basically gets thrown at you onto the table..you eat, you pay, you leave. $12 taxi from the Carmel market area.. worth the trip for the experience AND of course, the hummus. The line moves fast. There were about 6 people ahead of us.. wait was about 20 min. My guess is if you went at breakfast time, that would be the shortest wait. You can take it to go, but there reviewers said it was a mess.More

A former local eatery turned info a tourist attraction, the place deserves tour visit. Grab a seat and order a masabhah, it will make your day.

The best hummus I ever ate. The price is affordable. One portion is enough for two people, if you are not super hungry.

Here my first visit of year 2020 in #telaviv was all of sudden and feel so lucky to be at holy land. Being a travel and food blogger i got an opportunity to try world best #hummus at ABU HASSAN in #jaffa city in the...afternoon. First of all Happy newyear 2020 we entered into 2020 with new goals and resolution with vision in our mind. I was amazed to see the crowd outside the outlet because of which we could not dine in and it was the jewish shabbat about to start within next one hour so we managed to get it parcel for ourself otherwise we would have missed it thats why we were in rush while shooting this video. I tried this on a road side though tried to have a glimpse of cafe from inside and the menu. as weekend was about to start so loved the vibes at jaffa clock tower and the drums being played on beachside. I have made a vlog and its live on my YouTube channel you can watch and have a glimpse of what they are serving and at what price. #travofoodie Regards Kush joharMore

We had a terrific lunch here last week! There are three types of hummus on offer - normal hummus, masabaha which is spicy and fava bean hummus, all served with delicious pita breads, sliced of onions and hot chilli sauce. We really enjoyed ourselves -...we’ve added this charming little place to our must-visit list the next time we’re in the area !More
