Pulled beef served inside hummus.

After watching the sunset near Pacifica, we went to Orens Hummus Shop.

Oren Dobronsky, a technologist with 4 successful start-ups under his belt was drawn to the Silicon Valley, the epicenter of today’s technology innovations. Life in the valley was good, but one thing was missing: a big plate of creamy Hummus like back home in Tel Aviv, with fresh Pita & Mediterranean salads. A true entrepreneur, Oren decided to take matters into his own hands. With the help of his wife Nancy, an experienced restaurateur, the couple opened Oren’s Hummus, an authentic Israeli restaurant.

Chicken kabob dish with rice and falafels.

I thought the chicken kabob was pretty good. However, the rice was advertised as “basmati rice”… which felt a little unauthentic compared to some other basmati rice I’ve had.
