New This Week. Dip Into Hummus & Dessert! 🥙

At The Hummus Pita & Co., there are “so many ways to love it.”  Love what, exactly? The world’s most-loved, tastiest, and arguably healthiest, chickpea spread — hummus. True, this wildly successful chain does sell all things hummus. The Chef’s family recipe is a staple in all (yes, all!) dishes, and dessert hummuses are also a specialty. (Chocolate hummus! Cake batter hummus! Cookie dough hummus! Disclaimer: Not available on Stadium, we’re just making a PSA.)

As one would expect in fast-casual land, there’s a myriad of combinations one could choose to assemble the perfect pita, platter, or laffa (an authentic Middle Eastern bread that’s thicker and chewier than pita). The menu takes you through a maze of MidEast flavors via their process of “starting” your meal (with a protein), “making” your meal (with your vessel of choice), “filling” & “topping” it (with fresh salads, condiments, grains), and surely, “saucing” it (with popular things like tahina and tzatziki as well as ooooh… harissa. As in that delicious spicy stuff.

But… with so many combinations, it’s easy to make a mistake hence why we’ve carefully curated the best of the best and the colorful-est of the colorful-est so you can forget the thinking and focus on the eating you’re most welcome. And by the way, while The Hummus Pita Co. is indeed fast, expect these guys to use real-deal methods of cooking their food. Gyros spin daily on a vertical grill, and chicken and steak are marinated overnight then cooked tender in a taboon oven.

Try it this week.

Restaurant Launch: Fle-Fle Do You Love Me ? 🥙

Welcome Mediterranean powerhouse Fle-Fle. Relative newcomer Fle-Fle is entering into the hardened arena of Mediterranean cuisine, but don’t be caught off guard, they are well prepared for battle. Focusing on crisp clean Mediterranean flavors Fle-Fle brings their own flare with authentic, true-to-form dishes.

An storefront that’s not flee-ing

Feeling falafel? Check. Hankering for hummus? Check. Pristine pita?  Check. Did we mention their menu is 100% sustainable, all-natural, homemade, and non-GMO?  While 95% of their menu is vegan or vegetarian; perfect for all appetites!

The delicious brainchild of Syrian-born Riad El-Khaliabi, Fle-Fle packs in a mouthful of fresh ingredients into every bite. Four simple ingredients – chickpeas, lemon, tahini, and a pinch of salt – create the heavenly smooth hummus that is the centerpiece of almost every dish.

Looking for something more protein-packed to stave of those hunger pains? Try their marinated Chicken Tawook, accompanied with all your favorites; hummus, pickled turnips and peppers, drizzled with a rich tahini sauce, to name a few.

Their falafels are hand made daily to order. Crispy and brown on the outside, light and bright green on the inside, they are cooked to perfection and reminiscent of falafels only found in faraway lands along the ancient Silk Road.

If you are looking for a light vegan-friendly option, look no further than their crunchy falafel salad, accompanied by homemade pickled vegetables, seasonal mixed greens, some of that divine tahini, and a healthy scoop of hummus.

Have a sweet tooth? Savory isn’t the only thing Fle-Fle has perfected. Their flaky baklava has dozens of layers of buttery crust, topped with honey. The homemade phyllo dough pastry comes in a box of miniatures, perfect for sharing with your co-workers and will have you all saying, “Honey, I’m home!”
