The Smoothest Hummus
Hummus Shel Tehina near the Mahane Yehuda Market has become one of the top institutions for high-quality hummus and tehina at reasonable prices that harken back to the days when the shuk was still a working man's market. Known best for it's extra smooth and creamy hummus, Hummus Shel Tehina is a bastion of delicious homestyle cooking and warm service that'll make you feel right at home.
Hummus is obviously the star here, and it comes out freshly made, warm and absolutely delicious with a side of pita bread (white or whole wheat) and house-made pickles with the option for a refill on your hummus (if you can handle it). If hummus isn't enough, you can also order up sides of falafel, salads, home fries and soup in the winter. And if you've had enough hummus, try the famous hetzi-hetzi masbaha -- a variation of hummus with whole chickpeas and more tehina. You won't regret it. For those with a sweet-tooth, don't worry.
There's plenty of desserts to go around. Hummus Shel Tehina also does take-away and pre-ordered meals for group dinners and events, and once a year they celebrate "The Great Day of Hummus", when every guest gets a free sample of hummus.
