UES Hummus Kitchen

Not sure how new it is, but nice to see another falafel/hummus place in the UES. Love the pickles in the falafel. Anyone try it yet?

  1. I just went for lunch yesterday with my husband. We stumbled upon Hummus Kitchen while walking around the UES. I was so excited that they opened up a hummus restaurant in that area. However, I have the give the food only satisfactory ratings. Hummus Place is sooooooooooooooo much better! My husband and I thought the dishes lacked flavor and it just didn't compare to Hummus Place. I may sound harsh don't think I will be back.

    1. FYI, this week's Dining section of the Times had a review/comparison of several hummus places in the city, including Hummus Kitchen & Hummus Place (neither of which was deemed the best)...

      1. Hummus Place has great whole wheat pitas. Their falafel is more crispy on the outside. Hummus Kitchen's falafel has thinner skin, a bit more tender and oval. Still haven't tried HK's hummus yet. Anyways, nice to have the extra choice.
