Ditmas Park’s hummus hot spot.

The lowdown

It is diminishing to call Mimi’s a hummus joint, even though that’s what it calls itself. That’s because the tiny, charming spot is capable of so much more (not to take anything away from the hummus, which happens to be nutty and rich, creamy and delicious, and served with hot, fluffy pitas that disappear too fast). There are also the requisite Middle Eastern-accented vegetables, the trio of brunch shakshukas (red, green, merguez), and because we are living in the Age of the Bowl, an entire menu category devoted to them, filled with everything from branzino with Persian lime to beef kebab.
