Village Voice's Description

With admirable economy, this tiny restaurant concentrates on one foodstuff, and one alone. Luckily, the hummus is superb-creamy, garlicky, and paradoxically dense and light with alternating forkfuls. Of three configurations, the best involves the warm fava bean stew known as "fool" poured over the top, adding a beany and darkly flavored jolt to the sunny hummus, which is also dressed with olive oil and a sliced boiled egg dusted with paprika. This circus of tastes is further sided with a pair of puffy pitas and a pickle selection, making one of the city's most perfect cheap meals. Other locations in the West Village on the Upper West Side, see the website: www.hummusplace.com.

    All they really do is different hummus dishes. Everytime I go to NY I like to sit outside on a very small stool and eat my pita and hummus. -Susie Brunet, Launch My Line

    A great Middle Eastern place. I often come for brunch. Get the shaahuka with halumi. -Eric Wolitzky, Top Chef Just Desserts

    These guys brought all sorts of delicious hummus (hummi?) with assorted toppings served with pita bread for Choice Eats! You know it's good hummus when it stands out among all those dishes!

  • Nicky D. on 09/19/11

    Try the hummus!

  • Cheapism on 01/12/11

    Go here for tasty, inexpensive hummus. Try Hummus Masabacha for $6.95 and the malabi ($4.25) for dessert. Portions are great for sharing.
