Giyora Malka and Shlomo Cohen, Hummus Elite's dual owners, share the same passion and vision for food. From an early age, Malka cultivated a love of French and Moroccan cuisine in his small Israeli village. He graduated from the French Culinary Institute in New York, then set out to broaden his skills in such restaurants as Sushi Samba Park. Eventually, he met Shlomo, a business veteran with dreams of restaurant ownership. Their meeting ignited not only a close friendship, but also the creation of Hummus Elite.
The kosher restaurant focuses its menu on authentic and healthy dishes that are low in both cholesterol and calories, drawing on organic seasonal produce and eggs whenever possible. Servings of hummus are made several times a day, simultaneously keeping side dishes fresh for diners and replacing servings lost to snacking ghosts.
