In a cute little feature story, the Washington Post examined a day in the life of an Israeli Arab hummus restaurant. Jerusalem’s Ikermawi Restaurant has been serving hummus for more than three generations outside the Old City’s Damascus Gate. The menu is limited to hummus, foul and musabaheh, with only the exception of falafel for takeout during the month of Ramadan. Ikermawi serves a mixed population of Israeli Jews, Israeli Arabs and Palestinians in the early daytime hours when it is open—the hummus supply is usually almost exhausted by 7am.
