Best Hummus in Tel Aviv: Restaurants That are Worth It

If you’re on the quest to find the best hummus in Tel Aviv, then look no further. Below is a list of restaurants that are famed for how their hummus taste. Make sure to try these out and judge for yourself!

Happy For Hummus
Ask the Tel Avivians for a good hummus place and you’ll get ten different answers. Most likely, each person will give you a completely different place from the other resulting in what we call “The Famous Hummus Battle”.

Since there is no way we can tell you which hummus-ery will work best with your personal palette, the only way is for you to try them all.

While we don’t recommend doing that all in one day, it’s not such a bad challenge for a fortnightly project. Here are a few of our favourite places so get your fingers ready for some pita-dipping deliciousness!

 Abu Hassan

This hummus has been around since 1959 and to this day, it is packed to the max all week long with people making a pilgrimage to the legendary dish. We recommend going for the “triple” a dish that offers all of Abu Hassan’s goodness on a single plate.
14 Shivtei Yisrael St, Jaffa.

Hummus HaCarmel
This hummus place is nestled in the heart of the Carmel Food Market and is practically impossible to come across unless you’ve been directed to do so. This is quite surprising since once you do realize where it is, you discover a very large restaurant (for a hummus place that is) in a building reminiscent of an old synagogue. If you are in the market or in the general area, this very cheap deal will give you just the energy you need to continue shopping and roaming the streets.
11 Hacarmel St.

Mashawsha
This place offers a prime location just off of Burgrashov and Dizengoff center and gives you a homey feel in the heart of the bustling city. The owner is committed to using the best local ingredients and indeed the hummus tastes healthier than ever at no compromise to the great flavor!
40 Pinsker St.

Abu Adam
With the waves of people flocking this place during lunchtime hours, you can bet on getting the freshest warm hummus here at any time. The hummus here is closest to the Arab style and the recipe originates in the Galilee parts of the country.
7 Karlibach St.

Hummus Assaf
With great service, a central location, large portions, and great options for additions to the basic hummus, this place has it all. It’s likely to come in for a small dish and leave after eating some home-style cooking including meat, chicken, or fish dishes. Even so, we still prefer the basic hummus, ful (beans) and egg dish topped with garnish goodness.
88 Hashmonaim St.
