First Bite: Dizengoff


Michael Solomonov’s hummisiya, Dizengoff softly opened today. We were on hand to snap some photos and of course try out the hummus. We ordered the Hummus matbucha for $10. The hummus is topped with Moroccan cooked tomato-pepper salad and a slow-cooked egg. It reminded me of a hummus version of shakshuka and that was exactly The order comes with three side salads and a piece of pita, piping hot, right from the oven.

The food was plenty for lunch and the pita was just about enough for all the generous serving of hummus.

Dizengoff is a walk-up operation. When the weather is nice as it was today, the front facade rolls up, inviting the curious to slow down and take a look inside. Ordering is done at the counter and then you are given a 1980s baseball card for your order (when you order is up, the counter will yell out “Dale Murphy” or “Tug McGraw) instead of a number. The food is served on a tray, with the pita staying warm and moist in a paper bag. The seating is all at picnic tables with room for 24-or-so. To-go orders look to be a strong part of Dizengoff’s game plan.

Dizengoff’s hours will be 10:30 am to 8 pm, seven days a week.
