Eating out can be very pricey but if you know some insiders’ places, it can be even cheaper than buying products in grocery stores. Tel Aviv is well known for its amazing street food. If you’re traveling to Tel Aviv, eating hummus has to be on your must-do list. I wanna tell you about a hummus place I discovered last summer in the heart of Shuk HaCarmel – “Hummus Magen David”. Once you’ve tried Magen David hummus, you would never compromise for industrially made hummus in supermarkets again. This place is always busy and you have to wait in line for a while but it’s worth it. All tables are shared, so feel free to grab a seat with strangers.
So what’s unique in Hummus Magen David?
1. Interior – The building used to serve as a synagogue years ago, some judaica staff inside still reminds of it.
2. Price – Here comes the best part: a hummus portion costs 15 ILS only and it’s super delicious. You also can buy a take away box (0.5 kg) for the same price. It’s a bargain price – trust me!
3. Location – It’s a perfect place to grab something to eat after spending some time at the Shuk HaCarmel.
Please, remember to have cash on you, cause they don’t accept credit cards. It’s a bit hidden so keep an eye on the map!
If you are craving for a dessert to finish up your meal – go to HaMalabia!
