Tal’s Hummus Is a Great New Vegetarian Option in Nola

A casual alternative to Shaya

Brasted

This week Helen Freund reviews Upotwn Israeli street food hotspot Tal’s Hummus: “Diners order at a counter and can bring their own alcohol, which helps keep the tab low” on “a small and simple selection of platters, sandwiches and salads” including hummus, beef kebabs, pita sandwiches and borek (stuffed puff pastry).

But Tal’s is “mostly vegetarian” with sides that don’t disappoint, killer falafel with a “toasted, nutty flavor” and the specialty sabich (pictured above):

Warmed, fluffy pita...brims with smoky ribbons of charred eggplant, hard-boiled eggs, tomatoes, cucumbers, a healthy slathering of tahini and amba, a sweet and briny pickled mango condiment.

Make sure to save room for the baklava cigars.
