Hummus Bar & Grill

After a morning of grocery shopping, "The Ukrainian" decided he wanted to go out to eat. This is becoming an increasingly rare event, since we've been cooking more lately.

Hummus Bar & Grill is located in Tarzana, CA. It serves Middle Eastern cuisine, so you'll find a good share of customers talking to each other in Hebrew. I felt a little bit awkward there, as I have been discovering that Asians are sparse in this area, and I stick out like a sore thumb. People often stare at me like they have never seen an Asian person before. I'm not a good representative!

Above: The menu.
Above: Not too many appealing choices for me in terms of entrees, but the next time I come here, I definitely want hummus! Yes, it was a crime, but given that we weren't that hungry, we decided to order sparsely.

Above: These pickled condiments came after we ordered. They don't know what hit 'em! Yum! Notice the menu translation at the bottom of the pic!

Above: I was SO happy that they brought us a free pita bread. I saw them making it on the way in (I tried to take a pic, but it didn't go too well...). Look at the HUGE size of this. One was more than enough for the two of us.

Above: My grilled portebello. It was nice, but I think it was overmarinated or something. The mushroom was WAY too tender for my tastes... I normally prefer a chewier bite. I gave one piece to "The Ukrainian."

Above: Lamb skewer. It came with a salad that I failed to take a picture of...

If nothing else, the huge pita was worth the visit. I'm sure we'll be back at some point to pick other stuff off of the menu.


  1. I hate when it is over marinated!! Looks tasty though ;) Have a great weekend!

  2. I like my mushrooms pretty tender. Not to the point of mush or slime though. I'm very picky about my portabellas. LOL

    yea you'll have to go back for hummus!
