Inside this white-tiled eatery with mouthwatering cookbooks scattered left and right, the Israeli chef Lotan Lahmi’s (ex-Prince de Galles) generous hummus is made with well-traveled ingredients. Using chickpeas from the south of France and tahini from Nazareth, eat it warm and simply dressed, sprinkled with whole chickpeas, cumin and smoked paprika. It also comes in a seasonal vegetable version, with white beans and zucchini baba ganoush for example, or in a meat version too, with chicken thighs, sumac and pickled onions. Pair it with the salad of your choice: grated cauliflower tabbouleh with flat-leaf parsley, tomato, pomegranate and fennel, or a fresh Galilée salad made with tomatoes, cucumber, radishes, red onion and sumac. For dessert, there’s a good tahini shortbread or mouhalabieh, a sort of rose panna cotta. // O.J.

FEELING THIRSTY? Homemade rose lemonade (€2.50, or €1 with a main course), filtered cardamom coffee (€2.50), etc.

PRICE: Hummus plates €8 to €10.50, salads €3.50, desserts €1.50 to €3.50.
