I've spent some time in Israel, so it's always depressing eating the inferior Israeli condiments in the United States, particularly hummus. Balaboosta, on the other hand, reminds me of Israel. The food is always fresh, simple, and the hummus/pita plate that they serve there is the best I've had in the city. Soft, fluffy pita (not that flat crap), lightly charred, and hummus with zaatar, my favorite spice blend (oregano, basil thyme, thyme and savory). Literally everything on the menu is worth ordering, so go wild. They have Israeli and Morrocan beer on the menu, but neither are worth drinking.
