The prestigious Israeli Haaretz newspaper published a list of great Hummus restaurants in Israel.
Haaretz is a very respected magazine that in the past seemed to have a more social active agenda and now has become more  of a  financial newspaper. It's hard for me to say who the readership of this paper is. My dad has been reading this newspaper for decades. But I Feel today it is geared towards yuppy readers.
Some of the restaurants listed here, like number 1 on the list Abu Shaker are truly authentic and amazing. Others like - Puah - are restaurants geared more towards yuppies. 
Puah, looks run down - but it's the opposite from a hole in the wall - it's a very successful restaurant that sells not only expensive food but also a very specific atmosphere geared for yuppies looking for something authentic and willing to pay extra for a restaurant that feels old fashioned even if it's not that old at all. 
Many in my family love Puah, then again, I have a lot of yuppies in my family.

I personally prefer the more authentic Hummus joints even if they are really run down,  but I am fully aware that yuppies are a group that actually goes a lot to restaurants and that's why I've decided to include this list for those who want to explore the various new and not so new hummus restaurants in Israel.
