Hummus Saiid Acre – Old CityDining travel guide
Whether you are visiting Old Acre for the first time or coming to it for the umpteenth time, there is one place whose name is woven into the culinary history of the city and wins praise and hot reviews time and time again – Hummus Saiid in the Old Market in the Old City. Saiid’s hummus is considered the best-known hummus in Acre and represents the city time and time again in the parades of the best Israeli hummus, as it is often awarded the coveted title – the best hummus in Israel.
At the entrance to “Hummus Saiid” you will usually meet in line. Sometimes it is short and sometimes it is long and continuous, depending on when you arrive to eat. Some people are waiting for the simple but soft, tender and meticulous portion of the place and others swear they will not give up on the brew, which is a sour and spicy bean mixture served on the spot, alongside the chickpeas and felt.
The restaurant is very simple so every time you can be surprised by the excellent level of hummus, the service is fast and efficient and it is definitely worth the wait. Real fun and highly recommended.
Alongside the chickpeas, there are hot and soft pitas that accurately absorb the fresh chickpea mixture, a stew that has bought itself quite a few fans and olive oil that adorns all the dishes and comes from Saiid’s own cloth house. No wonder Saiid’s hummus has been chosen in recent years as the first place on the list of the best hummus in Israel.
