Few years back there was a legendary hummus place which was just called “the Syrian”, there was no sign or anything, nobody advertise the small place but they were packed daily and people stood in line to get a unique plate of this special hummus.
The original syrian hummus closed its gates suddenly, without a notice in 2014 and since then there was a big demand for his Hummus however nobody could step into the Syrian big boots.
The challenge of making this incredible Hummus was picked up by his son in 2016, following his father’s recipe he opened a new hummus shop in a bigger space, also in Hacarmel market.
The hummus is just as good, personally I prefered the father’s small shop but who cares when the hummus is excellent, the syrian son hummus stands to his father’s standards, no doubt about that.
I recommend the hummus, fava beans and egg combo, and don’t skip the hot peppers paste, add it all for a great festival of flavors.
Opening hours state until 15:00 but make sure you arrive before, in many cases the Hummus runs out around 13:00.
