The quintessential classic Haifa hummus shop, standing it’s ground for the better part of a century.

The classically recommended choice for authentic Arabic-style hummus in Haifa since 1936, Abu Shaker continues to hold its own on the Haifa hummus scene. Stop by the small shop for a lively lunch filled with the sounds of clanking plates, and grinding hummus-done in a traditional machine right next to the tables. Snack on the complimentary burgul and tomato sauce, falafel balls, or plate of majadra (rice with lentils and fried onions) alongside your hummus, thin fresh pitas, and mandatory assorted pickles.  Sit at a sidewalk table and watch the people of the city rush by as you wipe up every last bit.
