New Kosher Hummusiya Now Open in Los Angeles: Hasiba Restaurant

Opened over this past weekend, Hasiba Restaurant is a brand new hummusiya (Hummus eatery) in Los Angeles, on Pico off of La Cienega. The restaurant is a passion project from the owners of Lodge Bread Co (not kosher) in Culver City.

The concept of a Hummusiya is that of a neighborhood restaurant that mainly serves plates of fresh hummus with pita. The plates are traditionally served with a heaping portion of stewed chickpeas or Fava beans (fúl) and always served with lemon and olive oil.

The eatery seats 32 people (all communal) between a casual indoor space and front patio.

Pita at Hasiba is made fresh at a WoodStone Hearth Oven. Hummus made at the restaurant is organic and authentic to how it’s served at hummusiyas in Israel.

Diners can expect to find various hummuses on the menu served with fresh pita, various styles of shakshuka, pita sandwiches like the sabich, various salads, fries, and Middle Eastern desserts like malabi and halva cake.
