"To chickpea connoisseurs, making hummus is a fine art, one they seem to have mastered at this restaurant where the single-minded menu consists of several thick versions of the Middle Eastern spread." The restaurant New York magazine is referring to here is none other than Hummus Place, which combines water, chickpeas, tahini, olive oil, and lemon juice to create its creamy namesake dish. Read on to learn more about the eatery's four varieties of hummus, which arrive with warm, homemade pita or gluten-free tortillas.
- Hummus tahini is perhaps the simplest offering, featuring just the basics: tahini, spices, and olive oil
- Hummus fava comes topped with hearty fava-bean stew and a hard-boiled egg
- Hummus masabacha boasts a sprinkling of whole chickpeas
- Hummus mushrooms features a crown of sautéed mushrooms, onions, and spices
