The small, simple restaurant is a kind of workers' restaurant, specializes in hummus only. As is the case with many working restaurants, you may find yourself sitting together with foreign guests around the same table.
The service is fast and efficient and the noise of the waiters is part of the business here.
Our recommendation is the wonderful masabacha, which many consider Abu Hassan's flagship dish. Like the hummus, it is also eaten with fresh pita and onion. The masabacha is prepared by order, so it arrives hot and fresh to your table.
Without effort or publicity and without a secret recipe other than fresh products, the rumor of his hummus was passed and he succeeded. Suceeded very well. The place was named Abu Hassan, after Ali's eldest son. Many see it as the best hummus in Israel, and over the years, additional branches have opened on Shivtei Yisrael Street in the area. They are run by Ali's other sons.
Ali Karavan passed away in 2007. To his sons he left a legacy of hummus at a cheap price and excellent quality, without nonsense and without branding. Just good food, healthy and fast.
Enjoy your meal!
Open from 8:00 am until the hummus ends, usually around the early afternoon.
Here strangers sit with other strangers at the same table. Do not panic - it can be really fun!
