Cheap vegetarian hummus joint with various locations in the city. The hummus is fresh and creamy, but we suggest the shakshuka -- a stewed tomato, eggplant, pepper dish with two runny eggs. Great with their warm pita pockets and they also make some of the best basil mojitos in town.
Great food, cozy little cute place – The food was great. The service was a bit slow though. And I did not like their ice tea at all. But the homemade fresh lemonade was good. I will go again.
Best Israeli-Style Humus in a casual east village spot – If you have not tried this type of authentic hummus as a meal, you have not lived... Hummus made fresh and served warm, with a hard boilded egg, and different sauces on top. On the side get the Israeli Salad, and it comes with pickles olives too. They have whole wheat pita which is really nice. I go there every time i am in NY on a trip. The only other place that has similar hummus is taboon (see my review on that) but that is a much fancier and more expensive place. This is easy, quick, and the closest thing to fast food. The total check is like $15 per person!
Best Hummus in town! – This is the best place in town for hummus....
Truely authentic....very delicious.....consistent quality and taste....
I love this place!
Great night out! – For a bill under $30 - and healthy food - this is the best! The hummus with stewed fava beans was my favorite-- it is served with whole wheat pita bread and pickles -- all for $5! We had Goldstar beer (from Isreal) although we heard the Sangria is great as well!
We will definitely be back!
Best Hummus! – This place has the most delicious hummus, and fresh fluffy pita. The hummus with roasted pine nuts and hard boiled egg is sooooo good. It's a small, no-frills klinda of place, the service is lacking a bit, but it's totally worth it . I love going here, and always take some home with me. You have to go!!
Best Falafel in NYC – Hands down the best falafel I have ever had in NYC. Ever. Period. Light, fluffy, fresh and not greasy. Perfection. And the hummus ain't so bad either. Super friendly staff as well.
The best hummus in NYC! – The Hummus Place is excellent. Try the hummus w/fava beans and egg...it is delicious. The portions are generous and the accompanying pita, hot sauce, and pickles round out this addictive meal.
best hummus i've had yet – the hummus place has the best hummus i've tried to date. i often have a craving for it, and usually eat there 2-3 times a week. the hummus tahini with the boiled egg is amazing, and their hot sauce is a must. the staff is friendly. as long as i am in NYC i will return to the hummus place again and again.
Great Cheap Eat – My Israeli friend introduced Hummus place to me, stating it was one of the best outside of Tel Aviv. He also says this one is better than the one on MacDougal - I can't tell the difference. The food is affordable (under $10 per person). The green spicy sauce is so good. Also, check out the Israeli root beer - delicious. I usually order one shakshuka and one hummus (I ask for the egg to be removed from this dish, since you already get egg in the shakshuka) between 2 diners. There is seating in the back of the restaurant which is quieter and more spacious than out front.
The Best Hummus – The location on St. Marks is really tiny and cramped but it is sooooo worth it. The hummus us amazing and they give you a pretty big portion at a very inexpensive price. One order comes with 2 fresh, decent sized, warm pita breads. There are only like 3-4 things on the menu - however, they are all perfection.
