Not Your Average Hummus Spot
In Tel Aviv, hummus has marked its place as the king of fast-food meals rarely relegated to the lowly supporting role as a spread or dip. Locals in Tel Aviv can go on for hours arguing which is the best hummus and why. While Abu Dhabi might not always be a fan favorite it is definitely in the conversation.
Hummus Abu Dhabi offers a different kind of hummus experience. While they present customers with their very own Galilee style hummus, they also offer Hummus Meshawsha ( hot chickpeas) and Hummus Ful ( hummus with fava beans). Customers have the option to order salad, french fries and one shekel falafel balls as well.
The atmosphere at Abu Dahbi is unlike any other hummus place in Tel Aviv. The vibes are very reggae-influenced, that sets both your mind and stomach in the perfect mood to be in hummus heaven. Reggae music and lifestyle are firmly rooted in current Tel Aviv culture, so the vibes at Abu Dhabi fits in perfectly well within the collective mindset of the locals.
My advice: order the Meshawsha. You might ask yourself what exactly is Meshawsha? It’s hot chickpeas mixed with garlic, lemon, and tahini. The warm hummus had a sharp taste from the lemon and a nice bite from the chunks of garlic. There is just enough tahini for the flavor, but not too much to overwhelm the hummus. The chickpeas are super soft and dissolves into the hummus once it touched your tongue.
