Hummus Saiid Acre – Old City

Hummus Saiid Acre – Old City

Dining 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.

From Fast Food to Croissant Shawarma: A Comparison from an American Tourist's Perspective

From Fast Food to Croissant Shawarma: A Comparison from an American Tourist's Perspective

As an American tourist, I couldn't resist trying out the latest food craze in Haifa, Israel - the croissant shawarma. As a lover of fast food back home, I was intrigued by this unique combination of French pastry and Middle Eastern street food. My adventure took me to the Hazan restaurant in Haifa thanks to the help of a local friend. The moment I walked in, I felt like an outsider as the regulars gave me a curious look. But I was determined to try this new dish that everyone was talking about. The process of ordering and preparing the croissant shawarma was simple yet interesting. The workers sliced the shawarma on the spot, and I was handed a plate with paper on it to make my own croissant sandwich. The croissant was sliced in half and stuffed with a generous amount of veal shawarma, which was excellent in taste and quality. The croissant itself was slightly sweet, and the cabbage salad added a nice sour crunch. I also added some pickled vegetables from the salad bar to complete my meal. One thing that struck me was the affordability of this dish. It only cost me 30 shekels, which is equivalent to about $9 USD. In comparison, a fast food meal in the US would cost me around $10-$15, and it would not be as fresh or healthy as this croissant shawarma. As I enjoyed my meal, I couldn't help but draw comparisons to American fast food. While both cultures have their own unique fast food offerings, there is a significant difference in the quality and freshness of the ingredients. In Israel, the emphasis is on using fresh and healthy ingredients, and this is evident in the croissant shawarma dish that I had. In conclusion, I would highly recommend trying out the croissant shawarma if you ever find yourself in Haifa, Israel. It's a simple yet delicious combination that satisfies your taste buds and wallet. As an American tourist, it was refreshing to see the emphasis on fresh and healthy ingredients in fast food, and it's something that I hope catches on back home.
