We came across Mark Wiens food videos about Israel and we thoroughly enjoyed them. He recommended this hummus place and we loved it. We sat down and said “hummus” to the waiter. He said “special?”. We said “yes”, not sure of what we were ordering....More

We went for what was billed as the best hummas in Tel Aviv. I believe it! It is a small restaurant. You have to find a table. We each had a hummus and a Diet Coke. Great lunch. Even if you think you don’t like...More

We went to try the best hummus in the city and can confirm it was quite tasty. The staff was friendly. A classic hummus plate and two waters was 36.

Based on reading the article👆🏼, we walked from our Airbnb apartment in Jaffa the 8 minutes to the restaurant. We’d been eating fresh hummus w every meal for 8 days & this really does rank as the best we’ve ever had. No exaggeration. The waiters...More

I think there is always a line at the door, but don't worry, it goes by fast. You may share a table with strangers, but it just adds to the experience. Hummus and falafel at its freshest and tastiest!

I heard about this place before, but it wasn’t until last week I visited it. We ate humus and ful in their purest form. Friendly staff (no menus) helped us to the best order. The humus, ful and spicy cooked chickpeas were accompanied with crispy...More
