  1. Hummus restaurant (!) in ardmore --they also have a sister restaurant at 40th and walnut, west Phila. smooooth and creamy with homemade pita

    1. Try Aroma restaurant in the Valley Forge area.

          A family run business with excellent Middle East specialities. Eat in small dining rooms or take out. We also enjoy the tabouli, spanakopita and kabobs. Good food , reasonable prices, friendly service with no fluff.

            John and I tried to grab a falafel sandwich there today but we were pressed for time and forgot that they only take cash. Maybe tomorrow.

            Yes, I agree that Oasis has a terrific Hummus and its' tabbouli is great too not to mention the best stuffed grape leaves (best I've had) and the eggplant salad (also the best I've had).

            1. Store bought I think Sabra has the best hummus available. I might get flamed for that because it might not be fancy or hard to find but flavor wise I think they do a very good job.

              1. Store bought I usually go with Freshapeel. They are local-ish and have some unusual flavors.

                  What flavors do you get? I saw some flavors in the store the other day that made me think that it wasn't even hummus anymore... guac flavored hummus to me seems strange..

                  And FYI (not that it matters... ) Sabra is owned by Frito Lay.

                    I love the buffalo and the kale lemon and the jalapeno lime

                    The sweet flavors (chocolate,pumpkin) are strange, but good if you can find an application (apples work).

                    The guac is ok but I'd rather have just guac :-)
