Thoughts? I thought it was pretty fair, and I had no idea Hummus Bar & Grill had an AYCE banchan thing going on

            atwater =/= burbank/NoHo

            Although it's much closer than it used to be that's for sure.

                now that "hangover" closed in ktown, are there any other AYCD places apart from the bottomless hite at a-frame? i like the bottomless trend.

                    hummus bar and grill is pretty much the same kind of place as itzik hagadol down the street.
                    the array of salads isn't exactly banchan, but you can order it separately, but each person has to pay.

                    fyi, wsg prefers itzik hagadol.

                        i haven't had much luck asking this question before, but i'll try again:

                        why do you prefer itzik hagadol?

                        i have trouble picking between them myself. maybe i need to revisit itzik hagadol, because the last few times i've gone to hummus bar.
                        but from memory, i don't sense a great deal of difference between the two.

                          Itzik serves a wider selection of equally high quality mezze.

                              well, again, both restaurants serve a similar, tasty and wide variety of salads.

                              again, i guess it's time to give itzik hagadol a turn next time i'm in the area, but at the time of this post, i find both places just about equally good.

                          If you order the 20 AYCE Salad Option (which includes falafel and Israeli salad), it's $18 pp. If you order an entree, then the pricing is $8-9 pp. It's more like mezzes than ban chan.
