I've recently become addicted to hummus. I haven't found any I haven't loved either purchasing from a store or ordering it in restaurants. Any other hummus lovers out there that have suggestions on who makes their favorite, what restaurants serve it, who has the cheapest or the best, etc.?

My current favorite place to get it is at Shish Kabob downtown Raleigh. It's close to my house and they use the best looking tomatoes on their hummus sammich. (They also have this cookie dessert that's to die for - not sure what it is but it's not baklava.) I also love the pine nut hummus they sell in grocery stores around here (in a container with a red lid - can't remember the brand). I've thought about making my own but not sure where to find the ingredients (that's another topic).

We just came back from a trip to NYC (Manhattan) and I was delighted to find several restaurants dedicated specifically to hummus. I ate very well that week! I wonder if there would be a market for something like that in the Triangle.

[BTW, I noticed a few southern BBQ joints while we were up there too - amongst Greek, Turkish, all things Asian, Italian, lots of familiar chains, etc. etc. - really anything you can think of you want to eat! So whoever said in another recent thread you wouldn't expect to get southern BBQ in NYC - you might not expect it but you could get it! ]

Neomonde (Raleigh off Hillsborough and RTP) and their sister restaurant, Sitti, have amazing hummus. You can also get your fix for cheap at Trader Joe's. I'm seriously addicted to their chipotle hummus.

Yep, Trader Joe's is the ticket. Their most popular hummus - and our family's favorite - is their Mediterranean Hummus.

Charlie's Kabob or Taza Grill. Regardless of what you choose, I'd suggest takeout over a grocery store purchase. I think the red-lid hummus you are thinking of is Sabra brand (one of my favorites when I can't get to a restaurant)

I love the hummus at Neomonde, but I think the hummus at Sitti is a lot better. It has more of a lemony twang to it. I realize that they're sister restaurants, but I can tell a difference in the taste.

Love Neomonde when getting it out, but agree that Trader Joes has really good, cheap hummus ( and I generally don't even like TJ's). I also like the Sabra brand at HT, but it's kind of expensive. I don't c are for the Atheno brand. But, I've been making my own recently and it's so easy!

+1 for Neomonde. I also buy hummus at Harris Teeter when it is on sale. Not sure of the brand name though.

As far as store stuff, you are referring to Sabra which is top notch. For me, though, it's too pricey unless on sale. Food Lion has their own brand, Nature's Place, plain hummus for under $2 and it beats out any other store brand except Sabra. Loooove hummus!
