Best of March 2015
April 11, 2015
The best of March 2015 was a Middle Eastern restaurant called Mimi's Hummus in Ditmas Park, Brooklyn. Mimi's Hummus is such a tiny place but it is so bright and inviting with high ceilings and beautiful details. I loved the cans of olive oil neatly displayed in the kitchen.
I love hummus. If I were vegetarian, I would eat hummus every day. Their hummus was so silky, warm and not too garlicky but had amazing flavor with their lemon garlic dressing. They serve hummus with their homemade and equally tasty puffy and warm pitas and pickles. It was the best hummus I have had for a long time probably since the days I lived in Tunisia back in 2006.
I also had Aija which is a Middle Eastern omelet with potato green herbs and labane cheese and it was fabulous.
They own a market that sells craft beer next door and they have a weekly special on the menu.
I will absolutely go back there for chicken couscous.
