My husband and I went to Ha'Agas 1 for lunch today. It's located in the shuk (market) in Jerusaelm, one of my favorite places. The service was very friendly which I find makes a real difference to the restaurant experience. We had read that the chumus was fantastic. I'm not actually a big chumus fan, but my husband is.

I've been here 2 times and both were good experiences. I'm not sure if it's the "best hummus in the world" how they claim, but it's solid. The salad was fresh but the veg stuffed falafel lacked flavor. Was a bit of a let down. Overall a nice veg spot in the market.

I asked some Israelis what's some native Israeli food, and although many would tell you it's Hummus, Falafel or even Shakshuka (that's a funny one), some would say there isn't anything like real 'israeli' food, because 70 years ago there wasn't any Israel - it's an immigrant country, and an immigrant kitchen. I think Haagas 1 does an amazing job... More

This is a little hole in the wall place inside the Judah camp market in Jerusalem. The food is very good. We had the hummus, Shakshuka, vine leaves and kibbeh. All vegetarian. All delicious. One note though (and I almost dropped to 3 stars because of this) the owner/chef told my kids to be quiet because it's a "distinguished restaurant"... More

Came again, still the best of its kind, consistency is rare in this feild. Way to go! As a bonus you'r in the middle of Mahne Yehuda market so you can keep enjoing after the meal.

Tiny restaurant in the heart of Mahane Yehuda market. The Hummus was delicious (as suggested by other reviewers) and the stuffed Vine Leaves were also excellent.

A local spoiled me and took me to this little joint in the bustling Shuk one Friday in May. When I returned to Jerusalem in July, it was the first place I ran to when I got hungry. The hummus is light, creamy, and delicious. I've never had anything like it. The place is small, but cozy. You may have... More

Very typical little place, very quaint and lovely right in the "souk".The food is great, the place is well-known for their hummus so don't miss out, but also enjoy their fresh salads, tasty omelets and many Israeli specialities. Perfect place for vegan.
