Hey Hummus has become one of my favorite places in the city.  Its variety of toppings for the hummus plates is amazing, especially its original bowl and its falafel bowl. Its shawarma (meat that has been grilled for a day) will sure take you back to Birthright, especially when eaten in a pita with some harif (spicy), hummus, tehina and Israeli salad (tomato and cucumber). Its fries, which are seasoned with spicy powder. I highly suggest to put some of these fries inside the pita, no matter if you are eating falafel or shawarma. The best thing about Hey Hummus! is that doesn’t only offer an amazing selection of hummus, it is also Glatt Kosher!

Jewtina Tips: get the falafel bowl with an extra pita to make your own falafel sandwich.

Hummusology is that place that offers everything I love. From the moment you walk into the location you feel that you are in Tel Aviv. The purple wall has several pictures of Tel Aviv’s known places like the Shuk (market), beaches and the Pride Parade down the tayelet (boardwalk).

I couldn’t resist its cheese burekas (pastries made of thin flaky dough) with a side of hummus, a hard-boil egg and Israeli salad. Something I always loved about Israel is how always get a hard-boiled egg with your hummus, and half an onion. Its hummus-shakshuka (dish of eggs poached in a sauce of tomatoes) hybrid was another item on its menu that was beyond good.

Jewtina Tips: ask for extra green sauce!

Named after one of my favorite streets in Tel Aviv, Dizzengoff is one of the top places for hummus in Philadelphia (and New York, too). Chef Solomon created this place and

Dizzengoff offers only hummus with toppings, and on Sundays shakshuka. Each plate of hummus comes with a homemade pita, pickles and chopped salad. My go to is its original hummus with cilantro tahini and paprika. Sometimes I feel adventurous and order another item of its menu. I highly recommend its fried chickpea hummus, and if you want to feel that you are in Israel, add an egg to your order and the fried pita chips for an extra crunch to your order!

Jewtina Tips: get an extra pita, you’ll need one.
