The best Hummus in the world

This Hummus restaurant is the best in all of IsrEl, it is smooth, served nice and warm with fava beans if you want. It is absolutely a must go to place ! I am there at 7 am every time I am in Tel Aviv !!

A favorite of ours for Saturday lunches with friends and family. Always lively, friendly and warm. Always fresh, no frills, wonderfully tasty traditional food. We'll be back.

Best masabaha (humus with tahini and herbs) it is a bit spicy, with some raw onion and a boiled egg. They also have other dishes Humus, humus with raw chick peas And others. Recommended

We came here for breakfast/lunch and tried their "classic" and "warm" hummus plates. We preferred the classic one, but the other one was also very good. One plate is actually plenty for two people, so we had to take the other one away. The staff is very friendly and the atmosphere is original and cosy.

Take in mind that you're going for the hummus and not for sitting there so once you're done they can be impolite and kick you out, but really it's just a part of the... More
