King Hummus opens in Menlo Park

Uploaded: Mar 6, 2019
A new Mediterranean restaurant has opened its doors in Menlo Park.

King Hummus opened in late February at 840 Willow Road, owner Sam Kafle said. The restaurant serves hummus plates, shawarma, falafel, kebabs, schnitzel and other traditional dishes.

Kafle is from Nepal and one of the restaurant's partner's hails from Israel. Kafle described their menu as "real, authentic Mediterranean food."

Kafle is open Monday through Friday for lunch and dinner, from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.

I notice the sign, and decided to find out who owned King Hummus. As I suspected another Israeli trying to convince you that Hummous is Israeli authentic Israeli cuisine. Truthfully you would never be able to eat Israeli cuisine, and Israel is the NOT the Mediterranean! Israelis have chosen to steal food made by Palestinians. The Greeks are the real inspiration for this type of food and Arabs adopted it in many arab countries adding their spices. I found many people who cannot pronounce hummous the correct spelling. Changing the spelling also does not make this Israeli food. Also Sharwama has never been Israeli food. Just correcting. If you want real Arab food visit Mardinis Cafe at 2716 Willow Rd, Menlo Park. I am from the real Mediterranean, and its not in Israel
