We've had hummus all over the Middle East and this was the winner by far. If you are in Tel Aviv this is a must try for the experience (and low price!) Expect a line up, and don't forget to try the onion slice to dip in hummus

Eat and go Hummus,fries,falafel and sweet lemonade. A must visit for all Hummus lovers while in Tel Aviv/Yaffo. So delicious and if there's no available tables they will put you with other people and fill the tables everyone wants a dish of this fine Hummus before it runs out and the shop closes down for the day.

It is said that this is a no1 hummus in Israel. And it is. There is always a queue, but it is going quick and it is worth to wait. The waiters build the atmosphere of a local shuk, shouting the orders. It is a place for a quick hummus/falafel and leaving a table for others, but I come back... More

Everybody tells you this is the best Hummus in Israel - so we had to give it a try. We walked to the street-outlet of the very small restaurant (no chance to get a seat) and ordered various Hummus, which we received in a bag, together with Pita-Bread and cut onions, yes onions. We looked for a place nearby and... More

Try their MASABAHA, a mix of tahini and chick peas - a true delicacy. Their mix is also really good ("meshulash") - and it is hummus, masabaha and PHOUL

Maybe is the best Humus I eat, maybe not,nevertheless is one of the best wordwide. The taste and the raw material, the way the look and feel of the dish, the service are all components of a great Humus. Please ask for the masabacha. If you are in a mood pick the humus with hard boiled egg together with tehina.... More

We have gone there for breakfast. First, we have ordered masabaha. It was amazing! We have noted that the local people order another type of masabaha as well; so we have ordered the same. It is masabaha with beans and we think that the masabaha is better than its version with beans. You should definitely go there and have masabaha.

Best place for Mesabaha/ Hummus. I could go there every day for breakfast (and believe me, many people who live there do so...).
