Abu Taher

Address: Butchers' Market 16

Phone number: 02-6277893

Name:  Abu Taher


Amidst the butchers, under arches of sausages hanging from hooks hides the small restaurant of Abu Taher with authentic Arabic dishes and atmosphere. Their hummus recipe is passed down from generation to generation. The family moved their business to the market from the Central Station on Jaffa Road in 1948.

They serve excellent maqluba (rice, vegetables and meat cooked in layers), lamb cutlets and you can even have yogurt soup. We especially recommend the Chinese dishes but the hummus and the other traditional meals are also great.
