Heavenly Hummus

The hummus at Mashawi Lounge (13525 Westheimer, 281-752-4440) is made with garbanzos blended until they're as smooth as can be. It's topped with seasoned ground beef and roasted pine nuts, which add not only a fascinating series of flavors but different textures and colors too. It's similar to adding ground beef to queso. A big bowl can be had for a mere $3.69.
