Hamudi is a gifted chef and well respected among his peers. His monthly Master Culinary Workshops are always overbooked. Growing up as a fisherman has given an understanding and deep passion for sea food. He has a unique relationship with Jaffa’s fishermen and masses of know how in selecting the freshest and best quality fish and seafood. Hamudi's creations here are very customizable for each one of our guests, moreover, the roots and origins of House Number 3‘s kitchen came from the local Jaffa culture and influences of other Mediterranean cultures so all of our dishes are made from local ingredients and the freshness of them all.
"Cooking is a culture, creation and history to the roots which connect the diners to colors, scents and flavors"
December 1990, we sold our 40 meter apartment which we lived in for 6 months because we realized very fast that we can’t live in a matchbox of an apartment. We always dreamed to live in a castle so we started looking. When we found the Ottoman Castle of “House Number 3” it was ruined and very expensive to repair and restore. Back then Hamudi was working as a nurse and Layla worked in an office in her parents business. The bank didn’t want to mortgage the castle in order to give us a loan and it was more than difficult with all the obstacles. However that didn’t stop us from fulfilling our dream, as our will was stronger. We continued to work hard at our jobs and slowly began to rebuild the new home. Over several years we managed to overcome our financial struggles and restored the castle to its former glory. We feel that we've done such a good job that we are obligated to extend a personal invitation to you and your friends.
Over the last 7 years, we have brought many dozens of friends to House No. 3 during high-level delegations to Israel/Palestine. Layla and Hamoudi's welcoming home and truly exquisite cuisine is always a highlight of the trip. Many of our friends—well-heeled travelers in their own right—describe the time at their home as one of the most cherished culinary/hospitality experiences of their lives. We cannot more strongly endorse House No. 3 or our love and respect for the Habashi family.Gregory Khalil - President & Co-founder of TELOS

My husband along with six other couples had the pleasure of dining at House number 3 on our last night in Tel Aviv. Located in Yaffa, hosts Layla and her husband who happens to be the chef Hamudiur, open their beautiful home to visitors and I must tell you it was an unforgettable evening. Their home is charming and lovely, we were met by 3 musicians who played as we entered, we ate the most incredible food, played drums, danced and had a belly dancer perform for us. She was GORGEOUS! Did I say the food was AMAZING???!!! I left House number 3 with two new friends, Layla and her son. Do not miss the unique experience. It will stay with you years to come..!!Alison Levin - Miami
