Based on my visit, this place should be tagged as "where locals don't eat but they should". Super sarap ng food that I got a happiness headache after.

Got the Hummus with Mushrooms and it's the best hummus I've had so far. You can taste the nuttiness of the chick peas , maybe also coming from the tahini (sesame paste). It's creamy and rich with olive oil but at the same time had some texture with the coursely ground chick peas. A bit of zing livens up the dip perhaps from a spritz of lemon juice. Mushrooms were well seasoned and add some earthiness to every bite. The only thing that could make it better though is if they would use fresh instead of canned shrooms. Generously dip or pile on to some pita and add some of their amazing hot sauce and you've got yourself a perfect bite!

Thought things couldn't get better until I tried their Bureka stuffed with Feta and Spinach. Flaky, buttery, hot and oozing with every bite. Served with a hardboiled egg for extra richness, crushed tomatoes for freshness and a crisp pickle to cut for anti-umay. Couldn't resist taking some bites with the hummus and hot sauce for another level of yumminess! Huhu sarap talaga eh.

Also tried their falafel sandwich which is better than Beni's.

Lost some self control and still ordered dessert kahit hanggang ilong na ang busog ko. Got the bavarian cream with chocolate sauce and walnuts which was surprisingly light and airy. Parang vanilla ice cream na hindi masyado malamig. Good way to end this epic meal.

Will definitely be back (with my low EQ, malamang bukas).

Had a snack with a former colleague and we decided to try hummus Elijah. We ordered hummus with hard boiled egg, roasted eggplant dip, shakshuka (eggs cooked in tomato sauce) and falafel.
I can say everything was delicious and quite authentic. Price was very reasonable as well!

Hummus elijah with pita bread and vegetable lasagna in photo.

A bit heavy on the tummy but the hummus was tasty and flavorful.

Couldn't find the place right away and you have to walk a flight of stairs to get to the dining area. Ambience wasn't very appealing though it's a bunch of wooden tables, some airconditioning, and kitchen counter. More like a glorified carenderia if you ask me.

It is a known fact that i love Middle Eastern food and whenever a new kid comes in,  i make it a point that i try what they have to offer.  Hence my impromptu visit at Hummus Elijah a couple of days after they opened their doors to the public.

My visit is timely as i wanted to shed some pounds and stabilise my blood cholesterol levels (Hypochondria alert!).  I didn't have a hard time looking for the restaurant,  (perks for being a territorial mammal) born and bred in Makati.  The restaurant is situated on the second floor,  hardwood floors,  no fancy decor,  no-frills hole-in-the-wall joint.  There were a couple of diners when i came in.  Since I'm ordering takeaway, i went straight to the counter and got the menu. 

Falafel sandwich and Hummus to go.

In case you dont know,  a falafel is a meatball made from ground fava beans and chickpeas.  This is a staple in every Middle Eastern table.

The falafel sandwich is a steal.  For php 180 you get five falafels,  veggies,  tahini sauce tucked inside a freshly baked pita pocket.  The veggie meatballs is flavored well and really filling.  And can i just say that their hot sauce is to die for???  100 times better than Silantro.  This baby packs a punch. 

This is a first of many visits. 

P. S.  The hummus is exquisite.  The best I've tasted so far.
