The hummus at Jaffa’s Abu Hassan (sometimes called Ali Karavan) is a fixture on every local foodie’s hummus circuit. Some even consider it the source of the best plate of hummus in the world, and it has a cult-like following. The first bite you will have of the masabacha — a mixture of hummus, warm chickpeas and tahini — will help you understand the depth and sheer cultural force of this food. This is a first-come-first-served affair, so arrive no later than noon. Head to the old school branch on Jaffa’s Dolfin Street for the original experience, or something (slightly) more modern at Shivtei Israel Street, a few blocks east, near the flea market.
