Sabra Hummus House in DC

Guess what? There's a new house in DC: a SABRA house!

What's a Sabra Hummus House you may ask? It's a fun and gorgeous new place to eat in the Georgetown neighborhood of DC brought to you for a limited time by the people who make hummus, salsa, guacamole, tzatziki and other fun concoctions.

Because this is a pop up restaurant and not a permanent space (yet!?), you have got to hurry up and make sure to visit the Sabra Hummus House for lunch or dinner from now until October 26th.

On Tuesday I was invited by the Sabra team to check out some of the items on the menu at the Sabra House and below are my favorites:
Global tostada: crisp corn tortillas layered with hummus, guacamole, cilantro lime slaw, pico de gallo and queso fresco. These were crisp, fresh and perfect two-bite appetizers. How fun will these be at a party?

East Meets West sample of hummus: edamame, crystallized ginger & sesame oil; salty roasted pepitas & pumpkin seeds; 2Armadilos crispy rosemary roasted chickpeas & preserved lemon.

When I saw the combination of edamame and crystallized ginger on the menu, I was confused. I could not figure out what that would taste like. Well, it tasted awesome. So definitely try it! A bit of sweetness, a bit of spice and the great bite from the edamame.

If you aren't the adventurous type, you can get a classic hummus trio which includes olive oil, zatar spice and pine nuts; warm chickpeas & tahini; and garlic & lemon juice as the toppings.

{Sorry for the poor photos: the intimate light of the upstairs room made for great atmosphere but dark photos.}

I also really liked the two vegetable platters: one had pickled radishes, beets and pickles, and the other had the sweetest tomatoes, crunchy cucumbers and red peppers.

I cannot wait to come back and check out hummus Panini and the Green & Grains Salad drizzled with hummus vinaigrette.

And, not only will you like the food, but you'll feel good knowing that Sabra is donating $25,000 to the National FFA Scholarship Program to support agricultural education!
