To function properly, the human body requires a steady stream of nutrients, sunlight, and compliments from other species about its opposable thumbs. Use your bendable digits to provide yourself with nutrients with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of Israeli cuisine and drinks at Hummus Bar & Grill in Tarzana.
Hummus Bar & Grill adds pop to phlegmatic palates with a variety of savory Israeli dishes prepared fresh daily. Nosh on complimentary laffa flatbread while perusing the extensive menu or lip-reading with fellow diners. A wide selection of grilled kabobs come preassembled by a pro, such as the succulent lamb skewer ($14.99/1, $22.99/2), and the grilled portobello, a tender mushroom marinated in olive oil, garlic, herbs, and soy sauce, appeases the palates of hands-on mycologists ($12.99). Chefs also grill fish such as tilapia strips ($12.99) and pan-fried feasts such as the stuffed eggplant, with ground beef, lamb, mushrooms, and red peppers grazing its ensconced purple pastures ($14.99). Conclude sedentary Middle Eastern excursions with a coda of chocolate mousse ($6.99) and a caffeinated cup of bolstering Turkish brew ($2).
Diners can relax in a spacious dining room awash in dark wood tones, natural light, and a preternaturally friendly wait staff. Intimate tables allow for mealtime chatter, whereas bars cater to more profound philosophical revelations and pensively silent shareholder meetings.
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.
