Humus in Ardmore

bmcdeepak Dec 9, 2010 02:08 PM

Humus in Ardmore is now open...to a steady foot traffic, not crowded.

The place is on Greenfield Ave.

Smallish store front, busy, noisy, and a little confusion in th kitchen behindt he counter. Been there twice for lunch, order taker is nice but can't hear or record choices correctly, asked for rice on my falafel plate, got fries, chef gets impatient due to slow order taking and comes over to ask for what you're having...starbucks style, assembly on plate is also slow...lots of peering over order slips and fumbling ths way and that....calling out of names for order pickup adds to confusion....

Great falafels and food though...chef came over and offered a dish of olives and pickles, owner came by to ask how the food was...

You'll have to go to Moshe's in midtown NYC to get a better falafel.

    i agree too... we had lunch there. very affordable, very delish. authentic Israeli style. my son didn't like the shwarma b/c it was shreds of chicken not huge slices of meat --but that was exactly why I liked it. pita was soft and warm. all platters come with 2 side salads, small tastes of cold chopped veggies, fried eggplant, spicy carrots etc.
    they could put in fountain sodas or move the soda fridge where you can see it too. but that's a minor quibble.
    this neighborhood can use any new restaurant, esp. a modern, healthy nice one!

      I agree with everything you've written: excellent food but a very chaotic experience. Hopefully that will improve over time. Oh, and it's spelled 'Hummus'.
