With a quick glance at the menu, it's easy to see how L.A. Chicken Caffe got its name. Chicken is the staple protein here, taking many forms under the influence of Italian, bistro, and American cuisine. The cooks whip up poultry-based dishes that range from baked chicken penne to caesar chicken wraps to savory barbecue chicken sandwiches. Though chicken is their specialty, the cooks also satiate cravings with veggie wraps, california burgers, and salads, such as the Italian combo salad, tossed with mortadella, salami, and provolone. Guests can wash bites down with an espresso, latte, or smoothie made with fresh fruit and served in a freshly picked cup.
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.
