An Atlantan Back In NYC: Hummus/Pita

Taboonette: Union Square, Manhattan, NY, NY

In having recently moved back to NYC, I am still somewhat venturing solo here and there.  While I do have friends here still, it’s definitely a different phase, and as always, some sort of independence (both physical and emotional) is required.  That being said, I came here and solo’d it for lunch after trying out a new church one Sunday.  Thankfully, church ends early and so it wasn’t too crowded.  I am not the biggest connoisseur of mediterranean food, but I knew I couldn’t go wrong with a lamb pita and definitely cannot turn down fresh hummus.

Lamb pita with side of fresh hummus
PROS:
– super soft lamb: if you don’t like gamey meat, I’d opt for something else or a different kind of protein (or falafel).  This was super tender, well seasoned, and just got a great amount of that meaty fat that soaks real well into the pita
– pita was warm and soft, not super hard, didn’t dry out either
– hummus was fresh, went well with the lamb as it came out nice and cold
– comes with a nice side of sweet potato chips (upon request)
– not too much dressing on top of the lamb and veggies, feels very healthy even with a significantly greasy and fatty meat.

CONS:
– none

Definitely come and check them out.  They’ve got some nice window seating and the food comes relatively quick.  You can find them here on E. 13th Street near Union Square:
