Best Hummus Los Angeles 2013 

Haifa Restaurant

Israelis take their hummus seriously. That's why the simple chickpea dish is handled with such care at Haifa Restaurant along Pico's Jewish corridor. The signature Mediterranean staple comes as an appetizer with falafel balls or fresh fool; as a side salad; as an entree with a pile of shawarma; or as a standalone sandwich option — it's that good. Creamy and smooth, Haifa's slightly garlicky hummus is a revelation of possibilities. The gritty, dry, prepackaged stuff will no longer do, and you can forget about inferior hummus that comes coated in too much low-grade olive oil. What you will remember, though, is Haifa's fresh, vibrant hummus. Especially because it's plastered all over the menu. 8717 W. Pico Blvd., Pico-Robertson, 90019.

  • The Best L.A. Costumes of 2014 (So Far)
    It's no secret that SoCal knows what it's doing when it comes to make-up and costume design, (hello, Hollywood!) so it makes sense that we would also have the world's best cosplay. Here are our picks for the best of 2014 (so far).
  • Daw Yee: Mission of Burma
    L.A. has a very small pool of Burmese restaurants; among them, Daw Yee does not boast the most extensive menu. Nonetheless, Daw Yee, in Monterey Park, is fascinating for one big reason — namely, that it gives L.A. something unusual: a Burmese restaurant that caters to younger diners.
