Hummus at the Hummus Bistro

Hummus Bistro - Syrian Mediterranean Kitchen
A New Restaurant Almost in Shoreline

I usually don't publicly gush about restaurants but I've eaten at Hummus Bistro a few times and I needed to shout YUM!

Greek salad

It's definitely an inconspicuous little place. Not something I would see driving by and have a burning desire to try. But, it just so happens that my neighbor in Ridgecrest introduced us to some friends that moved here from Syria. They arrived in Washington a little more than a year ago and opened Hummus Bistro in the small space that used to be La Casa Azul. 

This evening I enjoyed succulent Chicken Shawerma, a tasty Greek salad and, of course, hummus! I am a big fan of hummus and theirs didn't disappoint. All I could have asked for was a larger portion (a vat or trough would work)! The food was presented beautifully and everything was very fresh and flavorful.


For dessert, we had sticky baklava and a cornbread-like cake soaked in the same gooey honey yumminess. Oh my, it was SO good! I would stop there just for that.

The dinner prices are more than reasonable, plus I see they have a special lunch menu of wraps, but I haven't tried those yet. Also, we were told that they will soon have their liquor license and plan to host intimate music performances in the near future.

Anyway, if you like Mediterranean food and you don't want to drive the U-District or Pike Place Market, you've got to check this little place out. Too bad it's not 50 feet north!
