We paid 30 shekels (about $7.75) for the two of us (not including any tip, as no one else seemed to be leaving one) for an endless pile of pita bread, huge servings of excellent hummus and olive oil, plates of olives, tomatoes, pickles, peppers, and onions, and glasses of cold water. (I think the only other thing to order... More

Hummus Said is the best meal in my life. I've had it 50 times and I say that after each meal. Hummus Said is amazing. The hummus is tart, tender, and tasteful. The pita is warm and fresh. I recommend the chetzi (half) mshausha and chetzi hummus. PRO TIP: Hummus said is ₪15 per person for unlimited hummus. Ask for... More

Said Hummus is arguably one of the most popular spots in Akko, and it topped out list of "Things To do" in Akko. At the entrance, a guide was talking to a bunch of tourists, explaining how the place is an "Institution in Itself" .. Needless to say that our expectations were quite high. Service was quick. Hummus arrived and... More

I'm not qualified to say whether this is indeed the best hummus in Israel, but I can certainly say it must take some beating. The hummus was excellent, the musabaha sensational. Clearly a great instituation, it's no-frills, fast service, very cheap, bustling, and serves generous portions. Lunch here will keep you fueled for many an hour. NB you can take... More

When strolling Akko market, we came a long a huge line with a lot of people. Apparently, they were all in line to Said's hummus which they swear is the best. I don't know, I didn't try, some people from our group did manage to get in and enjoyed it.

As it is known as one of the best hummus restaurants in Israel Our hopes were very high. There was a long line to get in, but it moved quickly . Service was fast and pleasant. Hummus was warm and creamy and was good but not the best we have ever had, and must add that just as good as... More

I was taken to this very simple setup in the market in the Old City of Acre and was amazed at the buzz. We stood and watched the hummus being made from beginning to end, its intense and its constant and its fascinating. Its really worth the wait in the queue - delicious !
