Hummous Place On St. Marks

They have the best hummous I have ever eaten. I recommend this place.

    They are expanding as I write to the place next door and combining their original space.

      I don't live near there, but get to the neighborhood occasionally, so I'd like to know just where it is. It's not actually named "Hummous Place"?! is it?

        Yes, mostly. Hummus Place.

            I had a falafel from the branch on 7th Ave. at Barrow. It was really good...haven't had the hummus itself yet.

        I love the East Village Hummus Place. The waitstaff is usually very nice, occasionally annoying, but it's always worth the visit. My recent experiences have all been positive. I go with my BF, and split one order of hummus fava with pine nuts and one order of felafel for a light dinner. It's a real bargain for such high-quality food.

            They don't sell the felafel as a sandwich, but you can make one with their delicious pita (the white pita is much better than the whole wheat). You get five pieces on a plate, so it doesn't get soggy like it does when you mix wet and dry in a sandwich.

          I agree but I ask them not to add any extra oil when they serve the hummous, it already has enough oil for my taste. You might want to request that if you go there for the first time. And I've always found the staff to be very nice. I've only been to the St. Marks location.

            The hummus is awesome. And it better be, considering how snotty the staff is.

                Lucky you! I'm sure they have the ability to be pleasant, but so far they haven't felt like behaving that way toward me. Not that it keeps me away, mind you.

                  I had a very sweet, friendly waitress several months ago when I had brunch there with my mother. I'm referring to the St Marks location.

                Ooh, I'd been wondering if they were any good. I'll add them to my list of places to try.
