OK, so I was really excited to try the food here, after passing by and noticing this new spot one day. The inside is absolutely beautiful, and I love hummus so thought this was a no brainer.

We got the Pomegranate Lemonade ($2.50 — just OK) and the Mushroom Hummus and the Egyptian Hummus.

Have to say, I was really disappointed. They were both the same thing — except one was topped with mushrooms and the other with fava beans. I thought if you’re gonna name a place Hummus Kitchen, you should have your dishes stand out, or be a little more exotic, a little different. The woman next to us had a really tasty looking dish, the Shakshuka ($6.95)…though, again, if it actually is better than the hummus, might need to re-think the name, no?

So I’m thinking: Decor is gorge, and I did like the fresh baked wheat pitas…but I think I’ll stick to Sabra for now.

    ever since i started making my own hummus i don’t bother ordering them at restaurants or buying the expensive stuff at stores. you should try making it at home!
