Brightening up the Philadelphia restaurant scene is a new addition to the Center City West region called Dizengoff. This restaurant is the creation of Michael Solomonov, who envisioned a place to eat much like the spots available throughout Israel. He has succeeded in his new eatery.
Dizengoff serves four varieties of homemade hummus daily, and the selections rotate, so you may not get the same type each visit. Accompanying these varieties are pitas that are freshly made, as well as seasonal salads and a tasty array of seasonal and appropriate toppings. Israeli pickles seal the deal.

Also available are non-alcoholic beverages such as sodas and San Pellegrino, as well as several varieties of craft beers. With plates coming in at an affordable $9 to $11, these options make dining here a delicious no-brainer.
For Michael Solomonov, the opening of Dizengoff is the realization of a dream come true, as well as the opportunity to move into a brighter and more successful future. His culinary vision is now a gain for the "City of Brotherly Love," as it offers hungry visitors and locals a delicious new option when it comes to fueling up. Open every day starting at 10:30 a.m., it's also convenient and available.
When the thought of the same old burgers and fries has you shaking your head in boredom, a hotspot like this one is a welcoming reprieve. It even feels roughcut and edgy inside; the decor features a collection of rock posters in funky colors and designs. Boring and cookie-cutter it is not!
The restaurant makes such a large quantity of hummus each day, that they are said to not even need to refrigerate it; it goes so fast. When you're serving up a crowd eager to sample what a hummusiya has to offer in a city known for cheesesteaks, you go through a lot of inventory. That's fine with the staff here, and they look forward to continuing to crank out their homemade recipe hummus choices as long as their customers want them.
Once you sample a light, housemade pita variety; dip it in that day's hummus offering with seasonal salatim; and top it off with a cold beverage of your choice, you may never go back to mainstay meals again. It's that good. If you've never tried hummus, go here to find out what you've been missing. If you like hummus, go here to find out how they make what you thought was good humus taste spectacular.
