Hummus With Lamb at Ameer’s Mediterranean

Available at Ameer’s Mediterranean Grill !
Located inside a nondescript strip mall near LaVista and Briarcliff roads, Ameer’s has some of the most authentic, no-frills Middle Eastern food in the city. Falafel and shawarma here are exemplary, but Ameer’s lesser-known lamb on hummus should not be missed. Spiced with a blend of oriental peppers, the mound of ground lamb rests on a bed of silky hummus topped with olive oil, parsley, and pine nuts. Swipe a piece of pillowy, toasted pita through both piles and scoop. Herby notes from the pine nuts and the creamy hummus transform the lamb’s natural gaminess from a rugged roar to an alluring whisper.
