Ever since enjoying a late night hummus meal with Gabriela a few weeks ago, I’ve been craving the chickpea mush like it’s nobody’s business. So when I took notice of Nanoosh – a Mediterranean hummus counter – the other day, I knew I’d have to give it a try.
(…I was also slightly drawn to the awkward name that happens to rhyme with mush. Just saying.)
Side note: I kind of get a kick out of the fact that there are restaurants/eateries based entirely around a dip. But, considering how delicious and versatile hummus is, I certainly can’t complain.
Nanoosh’s menu includes all of the lunchtime favorites – soup, salads, and wraps. Since I was hoping to consume as much hummus as humanly possible in one sitting, though, I went with one of their hummus plates.
That would be the “Hummus Chicken” – hummus topped with all natural chicken, organic onions, and tahini. Served with a warm pita.
The short version: phenom.
The long(er) version: perfectly creamy hummus, tender pulled chicken, and a meal that was easily the highlight of my afternoon.
Nanoosh has four NYC locations: West Side, East Side, Village, and Midtown. Their prices are pretty decent too, with every dish clocking in under $9. A new favorite of mine, for sure.
Do you like hummus? What’s your favorite way to eat it?
