Hummus Kitchen

Ahh with Thanksgiving fast approaching, I already can feel the impending gluttony of the upcoming holiday season.  Of course I won't let that stop me from eating out (I know, I have issues...) but I guess I should try to make some healthier choices! 

A friend recently suggested Hummus Kitchen and I thought why not, lets give it a try!

Hummus Kitchen - Kips Bay location
With a couple locations around the city, on this occasion I visited their Kips Bay location.  When you walk in, you'll see simple wood tables and chairs and exposed brick wall.  The lighting is bright and I can clearly read the menu (the way i prefer it!) and this spot is perfect for a casual weeknight dinner!

Inside of Hummus Kitchen
Looking at the menu, its a pretty simple menu offering standard Mediterranean/Middle Eastern fare. I like that its a simple menu yet offers a good variety of everything. 

Front of the menu - appetizers
Back of menu - entrees
To start, my dining campadres and I split the Mazze Trio with Hummus, Falafel, and Bureka (puff pastry stuffed with eggplant and potatoes).  Here's my confession: I don't like hummus or falafel, etc.  So what am I doing at Hummus Kitchen?  I dunno I try not to knock it till I try it!  As for the appetizers, I don't have much to add since I don't enjoy it to begin with, but my dining compadres seemed to enjoy it enough. 

Appetizer: Mazze Trio w/hummus, falafel, and bureka (puff pastry w/eggplant and potatoes)
For the entrees, the two popular dishes at our dinner for 5 people were the Chicken Kebab and the Mediterranean Red Chicken.  The Chicken Kebab was marinated and grilled for an overall great and light dish.  It usually comes with rice (YES!) but if you are looking for an extra light option, ask to swap that out for the Mediterranean Chopping Salad (which also looked delish).  The Mediterranean Red Chicken dish is chicken marinated in a Chraime Morocccan sauce with sweet and hot red peppers, lemon, cilantro, and garlic all served in a hot pan.  Lots of great flavor in this dish!

While I enjoyed all the food, I thought that the prices were a little high for such simple dishes such as the Chicken Kebab($15.95? hmm...).  Although the price was a touch high, I like that I didn't walk out feeling overstuffed and heavy - the food was well seasoned and flavorful yet not greasy.  I'll definitely be back!  And I've heard that their brunch is tasty...

  3. Therefore, it is better to buy the kitchen case, selection engine, pot, drain, touch and different kitchen addition products together, that may not just save yourself time and energy (in a feeling, it's still another way of preserving money) but can also acquire the very best reductions from the vendors

  4. The benefit of choosing a small table is that it can fit into a corner in the kitchen effortlessly. So, to place a nice looking table in your kitchen, you really need not have to have a big kitchen. Some tables fit nicely in a nook and take up the minimal space water filter system
