New This Week. Dip Into Hummus & Dessert! šŸ„™

At The Hummus Pita & Co., there are “so many ways to love it.” Ā 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 justĀ 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 laffaĀ (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 tzatzikiĀ 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 theĀ 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.
