Hot for Hummus, Mad for Mojito!

Hummus Place is a local favourite that I've been going to for years now, but I realized I don't think I've ever blogged about it. It's low key, cheap and has great consistent food. The menu is very small and simple and there is no meat to be found anywhere. This very israeli establishment is a favourite in the east village and also full, but never a wait. It's wonderful to order as take away or delivery too. I also get the same things on the menu, the hummus fava (with has a lovely hard boiled egg in the center), the shashuka, which is stewed tomatoes, with eggs and halumi baked into it. Halumi is an amazing sheep's cheese with a very distinct and wonderful flavour. Then I also love to add the falafel and labne sides.

The new discover this time however was the very AMAZING mojito! It was super special with the mint completely blended with the ice into a super smooth think slushie. It's done with Anise wine, which is an Israeli speciality apparently. They also have a variety of tasty fruit juices from Israel. It was so so wonderful on a very hot New York summer's night.
