We visited this small eatery for a dinner. The hummus is served as a set, with pita and pickled vegetables (perfect Central European feeling :)). The portions are big and have very good tastes. We tried hummus with fried mushroom, fried cauliflower and minced beef,...More

Ate here twice during my stay in Jerusalem. Best hummus, ever. One order would be enough for two people who aren`t very hungry. Don`t forget to have beer with it, too

The wait to order food and then to pay for it was worthwhile. Hummus was really good and the pita fluffy. Good salads and falafel too. The place is simple and affordable. Surely recommend for a simple food casual stop and some cold beer.
