Fans of The Hummus Factory no longer have to chase the food truck around town to find the Mediterranean menu. Starting on Memorial Day, the food truck converts into a bricks-and-mortar spot.
Owner Tony Tabet says the 3,000-square-foot restaurant that will seat about 100 with an open kitchen near Buffalo Drive and Sahara Avenue will feature the same Mediterranean food with an Asian twist found on the food truck, which he sold last year.
Look for kabobs such as chicken kabobs with a bed of onions and zucchini, lamb gyros, hummus sliders, eggplant dishes such as crispy eggplant fries, falafel and more. Even shawarma makes an appearance in the sliders. Vegetarians can try the stuffed grape leaves or the falafel plate. Frarej, a chicken dish baked with potatoes and tomatoes, as well as kafta and kibbi also make the cut.
The Hummus Factory also has burgers such as the Factory Burger and the Greek Burger.
Tabet once had Hedary's back in the day with a location in Fort Worth, Texas, as well, and his aunt opened Khoury's Mediterranean Restaurant in Las Vegas.
