The Fisherman family has been making some of Israel’s most prized hummus at their Tel-Aviv restaurant, Mifgash Hasteak, for over 50 years. In 2012, Ohad “Joonam” Fisherman moved to New York City and while he loved his new hometown, he missed real hummus. He began making his family’s hummus recipe for friends and colleagues who could not get enough of the smooth, rich classic chickpea spread.

“The stuff is amazing, I eat it all day long — it’s just like a hummus cloud,” Cheban says of Fisherman’s product. “I just got back from Israel, where I expected the hummus to be better — but Joonam is still the best.”

Fisherman says he uses his family’s time-honored recipe, though he doesn’t say much else besides claiming to go to the added length of sourcing Israeli sesame seeds to make his own tahini, which contributes a bump of lush nuttiness.
