Best Places to Get Hummus in Utica
I consider myself sort of a hummus connoisseur. Anytime a restaurant offers hummus on the menu, I have to order it. Being a vegan, it is a staple in my diet. I tend to make hummus at my house a lot. But, for those days I just don’t feel like making my own hummus, I turn to a few places in Utica that make great hummus. So, here’s a list of the best places in Utica to get hummus, in my opinion. Even though they all make the same dish, each place puts its own spin on hummus.
4. Zeina’s Cafe
Located on Varick Street, this is a great little place to get some amazing hummus. Here’s their Facebook page.
3. The Phoenician Restaurant
Just outside of the city limits on French Road in New Hartford, great hummus can be found at the Phoenician Restaurant. I always enjoy going here during lunchtime and getting the lunch buffet–it’s endless hummus (in addition to other foods on the buffet line).
2. Toma’s Mohawk Mini Market
Near Hannaford on Mohawk Street, Toma’s has a wide variety of different food. And the hummus is delicious. Get some to go and enjoy it for a few days (or in my case, a few hours).
Just a few weeks after this article was published, Toma’s closed. Read the whole story, here.
1. The Tramontane Cafe
If you’re looking for a unique tasting hummus, this is the place to go. The Tramontane Cafe is located on Lincoln Avenue. The Tram’s hummus has a taste that I have never tasted in all the places I have ordered hummus. It’s just something you have to try for yourself. Order it with the pita bread (it comes to the table warm).
