UPTOWN— An exciting new spot for affordable Israeli street food Tal's Hummus is now open in the former McClure's Barbecue spot on Magazine.
Owner and Tel Aviv native Tal Sharon is a Doris Metropolitan alum who was in charge of breads there, so expect killer pita and borekas ("savory puff pastry pies"), along with a great housemade condiment bar.
One menu highlight is the sabich— "a pita sandwich stuffed with fried eggplant and hard boiled egg, tahini, pickles and Israeli salad." BYOB, vegetarian friendly.
Certified Open at 4800 Magazine St, daily 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.. (504) 267-7357. Official website here. [Advocate]
