Cooking miraculously transforms mundane ingredients into delicious cuisine, rendering chickpeas into hummus and a forest tableau into a turducken. Explore these wonders with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of Middle Eastern fare at Hummus Bar & Grill in Tarzana.
Hummus Bar & Grill treats diners to large portions of savory Middle Eastern fare prepared fresh daily. Guests can begin delicious excursions by dipping laffa flatbread, pickles, and doomed G.I. Joes into the house hummus with tahini and olive oil ($6.99). For the entree, grilled skewers range from lamb ($14.99 for one; $22.99 for two) to beef sweetbreads ($11.99 for one; $15.99 for two), and the vegetarian selection includes a grilled portobello mushroom marinated in olive oil, garlic, and soy sauce ($12.99). Sweet flavors of chocolate mousse ($6.99) accompany mealtime debates about who has the biggest houseboat, and every delectable morsel can be washed down with sips of hot turkish coffee ($2), a glass of wine, or a draft beer from the bar.
Immersed in creamy beiges and deep browns, the contemporary décor of the spacious restaurant invites diners to enjoy a Middle Eastern feast amid the natural light streaming in through its enormous, dome-shaped windows.
The Hummus Bar & Grill
The Hummus Bar & Grill channels the flavors and spirit of Tel Aviv with authentic offerings of steaming, hot pitas and succulent grill-kissed skewers served in a relaxed, easygoing atmosphere. Diners can request a side of hot pita baked on location to scoop up israeli salad, which, like a lion tamer's living will, is made fresh every day. High-quality meats, including gourmet offerings such as chicken schnitzel and foie gras, are lovingly speared onto grilled skewers, and vegetarians can enjoy fire-kissed portobello mushrooms. A robust kosher menu includes homestyle dishes such as chicken-thigh steak and a special of the day. Guests can top off their meals with a turkish coffee and watch as the sun goes down and the dining room quickly fills with carefree ambiance as fellow diners clink glasses of Italian or Israeli wines against beers imported from Belgium, Holland, and England.
