Hummus Place is IT

Skillet Licker | Sep 29, 2004 12:05 AM

This is the best hummus I've ever had (not counting the ur-hummus ful spooned out by an old Palestinian man from a street stand on a tiny lane in the Old City 20 years ago).

Hummus Place only has three items (all hummus). The ful offers a swooningly delicious combination of hummus, ful, hard cooked egg, olive oil, tahini, paprika and parsley all discretely assembled in a shallow bowl, with a side of pickled onions and cukes and hot pepper, awaiting plunder by two perfectly warmed billowy rounds of real pita.

Nice Israeli juices or lemonade and Turkish coffee.

I've been to Hoomoos Asli many times and appreciate their varied menu and unusual condiments and authentic recipes. But the hummus lacked that certain deliciousness that Hummus Place has mastered. No need to go anywhere else for hummus from now on.
