Between the recent opening of a Middle Eastern food counter inside of House of Yes and, today, the opening of a new outpost of Mimi’s Hummus, there’s a lot of hummus among us. This third location of Mimi’s is a quicker, more on-the-go version of the Brooklyn original, with an abbreviated menu and the addition of falafel, but you can still find the traditional Israeli breakfast dish shakshuka, a tomato stew with lamb sausage, pita and a sunny side up egg on top. And of course there’s shawarma.
The original Mimi’s opened in 2006 and is a sit-down style restaurant, but the new location, although great for takeout, still uses real silverware for those who want to dine in. “We don’t use plastic anything here,” said manager Breck Oxford, adding that “everything is made from scratch every single day. Nothing is store bought.”
Have a look at the menu.
