“Best Hummus is an understatement”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 14, 2014

What else can be said on probably the best Hummus restaurant in the world. It makes you wonder what have you done so good that you deserve to enjoy this perfection. You can't visit the city and skip this institute.

“It is the Messabacha not the noise.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 7, 2014 via mobile

Abu Hasan is noisy, very noisy and very crowded. But, if you want the real thing it is the place to go for authentic humus (cheackpee) dishes.
The Mesabacha is the trophy here, with Tatbile (hot spicy lemon sauce) and tongue biting fresh onions. It is my perfect Friday breakfast.
Unfortunately the owners are strict Muslims, so no mimosas or Bloody Mary here.
The Falafel is nice but not exceptional.
No reservations, if late after 0830 AM, be ready for a 20-30 min in line.

“Worthy of the hummus hype ”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2014 via mobile

Visited at lunch on a Tuesday and it was packed with a decent line for table. Got a take away tub and demolished it in a nearby park. Top notch, chunky hummus.

“If you like humus- don't miss this one”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 31, 2014

Abu Hasan in Jaffa is a "must" for eating simple good humus with no fancy, a big crowd all aound. Yoy\u can also take away, but the fresh humus on the spot is what you really enjoy here.
