Even though the word “hummus” is in the name of this Kips Bay restaurant, there are really seven or eight different things that we’d recommend ordering here. You know, along with plenty of hummus (make sure you include the original chickpea version in your order). Shawarma wraps, falafel, babaganush, stuffed grape leaves, shakshuka, Moroccan fish dishes, and a range of meat options are all must-trys. Which is all to say: you’re going to have to come back here time and time again to truly experience this place.
