Hummus is no simple beast. Its Middle Eastern origins are shrouded in mystery, but some legends hold that the dip was the world's first prepared food. The bulk is mashed chickpeas, seasoned with tahini, olive oil, lemon juice, salt, and garlic. When the ingredients are blended poorly, the hummus can be runny and bitter, or worse, doughy and bland. But there's no doubt that the foodsmiths at Falafel King know the right recipe. Creamy and rich, their hummus blends perfectly with the flavor of pita, or falafel, or nearly anything else you'd care to dip in it. Add kalamata olives to an order of pita and hummus and you'd be hard-pressed to find a better lunch.
