In the heart of Jaffa, amid incessant traffic and crowds of children riding on bicycles, lies Abu Hassan. There is no season for hummus, as the ever-present crowd outside the restaurant can attest. Table turnover is quick, as the menu is simple and the waiters fast-moving. Diners devour perfect, crispy falafel, soft pitta bread with sauces, sweet lemonade and custom-made hummus bowls. Specials include sabich, pitta bread stuffed with grilled aubergine and a boiled egg, and masbacha (a type of hummus) with warm chickpeas and spicy peppers. Vegan and vegetarian options are available.
