Hummus House's chefs elevate their signature side to headliner status with a variety of flavors that complement a menu of meaty or vegetarian entrees. Hummus flavors such as jalapeño cilantro, fiery chili, and kalamata olive coat pita bread, and the selection of flavors rotates regularly. Broasted chicken, the eatery's twist on fried chicken, takes about 30 minutes to materialize, during which poultry steeps in a pressurized broaster to seal in juices. While diners munch, their eyes can feast on regal accents in Hummus House’s colorful dining rooms, one of which flaunts scarlet and gold cloth spiraling out from a chandelier like rays from the sun.
Spicy jerk chicken, slow-cooked fish, beef stews, and zesty curried goat. The flavors of Jamaica come alive in the Ocho Rios Grill kitchen, where spice and sweet mingle and each bite calls back to its Caribbean roots. Any time of day, golden-brown patties stuffed with spinach or beef are a popular treat and breakfasts of ackee and salted cod start the morning with their generous helpings. When feeding a big group, catering packages bring a piece of island paradise to parties and events without the need to dump sand all over the dance floor first.
Meticulously prepared dishes brimming with fresh ingredients greet palates at India’s Tandoori Halal Indian Restaurant, a celebrated Hawthorne eatery with a full menu of Indian cuisine. Taking its name from the clay oven often used in Indian cooking, the restaurant serves up signature morsels such as tandoori game hen and channa masala, a Punjabi-style chickpea dish laden with spices. Clay-oven-baked breads known as rotis accompany savory main courses, and desserts in the form of rice pudding add a sweet-ending note to a symphony of flavors, much as most conductors conclude orchestral pieces by distributing brownies to the audience.
Behind the glossy metal counter of Corner Burger, chefs flip fresh patties of beef, turkey, and chicken atop an open grill as soft hamburger buns wait nearby. Classic red barstools provide views of the action, and, once freshly cooked, burgers receive a slew of premium sauces such as chipotle or garlic mayo, jalapeño ranch, or Louisiana ketchup. Sauces team up with toppings such as yellow chili peppers, onion rings, or blue cheese to add texture and complex flavor combinations. Shakes and fountain drinks wash it all down, alongside orders of sweet-potato fries, onion rings, and fries cut in-house with a medieval sword.
