  • Crusaders Church

    The Crusaders Church is located in the village itself, right next to the famous Abu Shukri hummus joint. The gate is usaully closed, but once you ring the bell they will open it for you. Inside you will find a charming little church and a beautiful garden. The priest in charge of the place is one of the nicest I've ever met. He will take you on a...

    "The original Abu Shukri's humus started in a small restaurant in the Old City of Jerusalem, with a recipe that was passed from father to son, and is religiously adhered to in its new residence in Abu Gosh": This is what the sign inside the restaurant says.There are various claims to Abu Shukri's legendary recipe and tradition, with at least two of...

  • Arab food on the highway to Jerusalem

    On the highway between Tel Aviv and Jerusalem not far from Jerusalem lies Abu Ghaush, which is famous for the best humus in Israel. There are apparently 3 "original" restaurant all shooting off the actual original restaurant that made the name for the village.

  • "The" Lebanese Restaurant or Ethnic...

    Simply called the "Lebanese Restaurant", this place has been there for YEARS and people still fill it up on the weekends. If you are unfamiliar with the foods try them all. The Hummus is especially delicious.

  • Lebanese Food with a view

    The entire village of Abu Ghaush is full with restaurants. Each one has its own favourite. For me, it's the Lebanese restaurant in the entrance to the village. If you sit outside, under the mulberry tree, you will have great views of the valley. The ultimate dish is stuffed chicken. The chicken is stuffed with rice spiced with cinnamon. This is a...
