East meets West Somerville
Hummus at Kababish
by Nancy Kalajian
East meets West; West meets East -- no matter how you phrase it, the hummus at
Kababish in Somerville's Davis Square is off the map. The smooth, lightly tangy
concoction is made with just the right touch of garlic and cumin, and it's been
earning accolades from even the best Lebanese home cooks. Yet, interestingly,
owners Kulbir and Avtar Singh hail from Punjab, in northern India. This really
is world cuisine. The hummus comes in a pita-pocket sandwich ($2.75) or on
various combo plates with other Mediterranean snacks.
Kababish, located at 195 Elm Street, in Somerville, is open Monday through
Saturday from 11:30 a.m. to 10 p.m., and Sunday from 5 to
10 p.m. Call (617) 623-3354.
