Failed on Health and Clean checking that were in July 2016. Best Humus but the results of the checking were so poor reasonable people should avoid it.

Abu hassan for all his three branches offers one of the golden dishes of Israeli Culinary: The messabacha. It's a mix of the hummus paste with tahini and cooked chikpeas. Don't take the regular hummus. Very important: it's not recommanded to get to all the threebranches after 14:30, because when the hummus is finished they hurry to close. Don't miss!

It's nothing like this humus. It's not the same one you would get in the supermarket or even the one you would get in a humus place in an average Middle East city. This is something special. It slips down your throat like water and you never feel so full after eating it. Don't visit Tel aviv without a visit... More

Abu Hassan is located on a less traveled Street in jaffa. Yet, we found the restaurant with some WAZE's help. The line was long but luckily for us, they all wanted to sit inside (AC) while the lonely table outdoors was available. . It was "only" 85F and low humidity so sitting outside in the shade was quite pleasent. The... More

What a nice place to have dinner. De finger licking small samples to begin with and the delicious pitas make me forget that a main course follows. All sections of the multicultural society are having a great time. I wonder what CNN does not report this kinds of places. Close to the peres peace center. A place to visit !
