Ditmas Park: Mimi’s Hummus’s Iraqi Sandwich
We’ve loved Mimi’s Hummus for years, having happened upon it almost by accident right after it first opened, and becoming devoted diners immediately. And while just a plate of hummus (fava bean is our fave) and some warm pita is a perfectly decent snack, lunch calls for something heartier, something like this sandwich. The Iraqi sandwich melds a layer of hummus, oily, melt-in-your-mouth eggplant, slices of mild potato, perfectly boiled eggs, and a sprinkling of cilantro for the ultimate Mediterranean treat. Accompanied by some of the best pickles you’ll ever have, this is elevated Middle Eastern street at its finest.
