The Daily Meal

On the upper west side of Manhattan, NY, Leyla combines modern Turkish flavors with traditional Mediterranean favorites. They make this classic, creamy hummus every day in house and top it with a beetroot salsa and pickled za'atar. Feel free to get creative with your toppings — maybe you fancy roasted red peppers or perhaps just a drizzle of good olive oil. No matter what, always remember to serve with warm pita bread!
