The organic trend has definitely hit Tel Aviv, and in all of the expected ways. With small organic markets, imported organic wines, organic goat cheeses, and organic gourmet foods.
But organic foods usually appeal to a certain type of food shopper, and not always the kind who sits down on a busy street to eat a plate of hummus.
That’s why its so great that Abba Gil Hummus – Israel’s first organic hummus restaurant – has been successfully offering organic hummus to the Tel Aviv masses for three years.
Located at 55 Yehuda Halevi Street (at the corner of Yehuda Halevi and Yavne), this small and almost unnoticeable place offers fresh organic hummus, prepared daily, and without any preservatives or chemical substances. The hummus can be enjoyed in the restaurant or bought to take home.
The hummus is served with whole wheat organic pitas, and Abba Gil offers cooking workshops for baking these delicious pitas at home.
If you’re still hungry, Abba Gil also serves a variety of organic salads and a fresh organic soup that changes every day.
If you’re thirsty, order a glass of freshly-squeezed, seasonal organic juice.
Abba Gil proves that organic foods don’t have to have “eco-chic” in order to be successful. They just have to be delicious.
