  1. I am addicted to TJ's. I also read that Costco hummus is pretty good.

        Third the Trader Joe's rec, but do avoid the Costco hummus. They are now selling a brand which has the smooth consistency of toothpaste, and has a faint chemical taste from the container (?).

    1. Your going to Glendale, but where and by what general route are you coming from?

      1. Cannot imagine that most of the Armenian restaurants in Glendale cannot serve you up some as a side dish in a to-go container. Carousel, Zankou, Mandaloun are some.
        If coming from E/Hollywood, Los Feliz, etc., then Marouch or Zankou.

          I third Zankou! One of my favorites. Also, the spicy hummus from Trader Joes is good!

        2. You can get excellent hummos to go from any of the Zankou locations. I also second the recommendations of getting it to go from Caroussel in Hollywood or Glendale. Marouch (in Silverlake) also has excellent takeout hummos.

          1. I like the hummus they sell out of the fridge case at "Whole Food for Life" market on Los Feliz Blvd in Atwater Village, which should be on the way into Glendale if you're coming via the 5.

            Zankou's (as noted above) is pretty decent too, as is their mutabal/babaganoush.
