I'm looking for opinions on the best tasting hummus (of any sort or style) in the area.
My personal favorites are likely the hummus at Subuddy and the hummus w/chicken at Pita Jungle (although this defies the rules as it's based on more than the hummus alone). Looking for some other strong options, as well.
It's a little bit off Phoenix/Scottsdale, but Arizona Golf Resort have great hummus. The owners of the resort are from Israel and they told me the Hummus at the Resort is close to what they serve at home.
Not in Scottsdale but Spices in Chandler at Ray/McClintock has fantastic hummus. On par with Sabuddy we think(though much closer to our house!)
Our hummus preferences seem to run contrary to most of the folks here, so take them with a grain of salt. Shish Kebab House, which should be in their new location in the NW corner of Olive and 51st Ave, is our long-standing go-to choice for hummus. Recently Mr. Greek opened on Indian School at 40th Street and their hummus is as-good-as or a really close second to Shish.
We also recently tried the store brand hummus at our local Fresh & Easy and found it to be outstanding, especially when eaten with their garlic naan.
Have you tried Aladdin's (near corner of Via Linda & 90th St)? Small family owned place where they make everything from scratch. Only down side is that they're not speedy (best to call ahead with order) and they close pretty early at 8pm. The owner is from Lebannon and the food (including hummus) is pretty darn authentic and tasty.
I found the hummus at the Persian Room to be so creamy, I was suspicious of what they may have put in it. The fact that the pita comes fresh out of the oven might help, too.
The hummus at Dooby's is entirely different - chunky and heterogeneous.
I think Pita Jungle's is okay, but, that place is so low fat. I think they need to splash some oil around.
