The best Hummus Among Us

After hearing rave reviews from our Israeli family about "Hummus Place" we decided it was absolutely necessary to check it out. I had been looking forward to this for a very long time and had rather high expectations. The restaurant had a lovely decor and an intimate feel. We ordered the Hummus with warm mushrooms and Shakshuka which is a Mediterranean tomato and vegetable stew with two eggs over easy. These were served with freshly baked pitas. We were almost completely stuffed and happy afterwards, however, Malabi was on the menu which is one of our favorite Israeli deserts and is very rare to come across in the United States. It somewhat resembles flan in its consistency and is covered in a cassis syrup and coconut shavings. It was almost as if we had been transported to a cafe in Tel-Aviv. All in all, the meal was delicious and affordable. With three locations in the Manhattan area, it is highly recommended for New York locals or those just visiting!
