If you go to Israel, you'd be wise to check out these Hummus places. Forget religion, the conflict, nationhood, the occupied territories, this is the essence of Israeliness.

Abu Hassan – Ali Caravan – Jaffa

What they say:
“The best hummus I have ever eaten!! Highly recommended!! A small stand in Jaffa where people get through hundreds of plates of hummus a day. People sit on the floor by the stand, just to eat this amazing hummus!!”
1 Hadolphin Street, Jaffa
14 Shivtei Yisrael Street, Jaffa

Sa’id – Akko

What they say:
“Maybe it’s better not to eat it because, after this hummus, you can’t eat any other hummus” – Yossi Jimmy. “This isn’t hummus, it’s refined poetry. True gourmet.”
Old City Market, Akko

Hummus Ashkara - Tel Aviv

What they say:
“Amazing complete hummus. The tastiest in Israel. A rough and aggressive texture with a pleasant flavor. Special ambiance with funny and crazy waiters. Try at least once.”
45 Yirmiyahu Street, Tel Aviv

Missedet HaKfar – Abu Shukri – Abu Ghosh

What they say:
“The best hummus there is in Israel, and this is someone whose belly is full of hummus!!!” – Michael. “Excellent hummus, definitely the best in Israel!!! Right in Abu Ghosh (and not between restaurants where everyone goes), a tiny place with great people!!!”
The center of the village, Abu Ghosh

Roni Ful – Tel Aviv

What they say:
“Rare flavor and excellent service. Order the meshulash (triple) – hummus, ful and an egg. The falafel, pita bread and pickles are on the house."
22 Eilat Street, Tel Aviv

Hummus Asli – Tel Aviv

What they say:
“Tasty, clean, fresh. The only down side is the noise (right next to a busy intersection).”
338 Dizengoff Street, Tel Aviv

Pinati – Jerusalem

What they say:
“Precise and balanced recipe of hummus and tehina, olive oil and grains. The dish lands on your table within seconds, with spicy felafel, pickles and pita bread. Precise service.”
