The lamb kabob sandwich ($8.95) was said to come with skewered lamb pieces seasoned with spices and truffle oil. I didn’t pick up on any truffle oil, but the heavy Middle Eastern seasoning was appreciated. The lamb was tender and charred, but there were some fatty pieces that were not enjoyable. Hummus needs to cut costs somewhere, and they probably aren’t purchasing the highest quality lamb. For an extra dollar, I added fried eggplant, which although served cold, were a nice addition of texture and taste.
The wide range of customizable sandwiches and the healthy yet tasty thing they have going on, Hummus may suit your purpose if you find yourself in the mood for chickpea puree topped chickpea balls in University City.
