The Taboon Hummus Festival Menu, created by the restaurant’s executive chef / partner, Efi Nahon, resonates with his personal passion for hummus which he maintains should be a part of “every meal – breakfast, lunch and dinner - because it goes with everything.” For the festival, Nahon backs up that assertion by combining his signature rich and creamy hummus with a broad spectrum of ingredients not commonly associated with the dish to extraordinary mouthwatering effect such as: Braised Short Ribs, chick pea, onions, shaved celery and Chicken Liver, port, caramelized onion, cumin. For those who relish hummus as a high protein and fiber vegetarian correctness, Nahon will offer Falafel, chick pea, tahini, Crispy avocado, spicy tomato salsa, black beans and Wild Mushrooms, red wine, egg tempura. All are available in addition to the regular menu’s hummus offering that does play the dip role for Taboon’s house baked foccacia. The Hummust Festival Menu will be available online via Open Table.
