While hummus like most foods is a subjective matter, one of the most debated, appreciated, talked-about and recommended places for hummus is Abu-Hasan. The location is so popular that the owners opened another branch right across the street and they are both packed at all opening hours. While hummus enthusiasts might pick other places as their all time favorites, this... More

You will have no trouble finding this place. Just look for people sitting anywhere they can, both inside and outside. Where i am from hummus is dip or a side. Not this place the hummus in the main event. The hummus still warm from the grinding process. Topped with whole chickpeas fresh herbs, stunning olive oil and partnered up with... More

I can't say whether this is the best Hummus in Israel as others claim but it is very good. Basically a window with a couple tables. It was packed. We stood on line and got our hummus in bowls which they let you take outside so you can sit on a nearby wall and savor the flavor. Pita was fresh,... More

For a truly Israeli experience head to Abu Hassan. The place is run down, hurried, and absolutely delicious. They serve Hummus, falafel, french fries (chips) and that's just about it. Get a warm bowl of Humus just the way you like it and top it with some spicy lemon juice, a bit of schug (spicy stuff) and dig in with... More

The hummus is excellent, try it with a soda which tastes like a guinness... go for breakfast and quite early. The only cons is that people are used to eat hummus very quickly and the rushing approach may get to you. Strongly recommended, a very local experience.

I arrived at 07:00. The resraurant had just opened. Had to wait a while. The smell of the freshly cooked humus was so good, I was eager to taste. Received a nice plate of humus with olive oil and fresh onion on the side. Was very good wiped the plate clean.

As an Israeli living in Australia, my "good hummus" selection back home in Melbourne is somewhat limited. Over the years, I have perfected my home-made hummus recipe and have become very picky about my hummus. That said, on my visits to Israel, I like to sample what Israelis consider "the best hummus places". One thing you should know about Israelis... More

This is for the Abu Hasan / Ali Caravan at Hadolfin street. Hommus with Masbakha was very tasty especially with the raw onion I requested. I wouldn't call it a magical experience, but it was indeed very good hommus. Have to be aggressive with ordering, they have no patience.
