It was Maundy Thursday and after our long walk at the Kalbaryo ng Poblacion, we decided to take a late quick snack before going home.
We ordered Hummus Elijah, Baklavah and the local tea. We enjoyed the food and definitely will come back to try the other dishes.

I had no expectations about Hummus Elijah. The place is located around the corner from the hotel I stayed at. I walked over there and was immediately put off because it was placed next door to a massage parlor. Well you can't judge a book by its cover and chose to persist in my adventure. I love falafel and hummus and had to give it a try. I walked up a narrow flight of stairs and entered Lebanon. The atmosphere authentic. The aroma inviting. The service great. The food even better. It was the one restaurant I returned to dine in the 4 days I spent in Makati. That alone should be enough said. If you enjoy Lebanese food than you owe it to yourself to go there and have at the wonderful fare.

it is vegetarian. We tried the Hummas Elijah and the grilled cheese and both were quite nice.

We left disappointed however since we went looking for Middle East style meats.

I can recommend it to someone looking for a vegetarian meal.

Dear Gary
Yes, we are a vegetarian restaurant and very proud to be part of a community that promotes healthy delicious food as well as compassion to animals.
We don't hide the fact that we are vegetarian. On the contrary. You can see it in our menu, Facebook page, website and all other social media.
In Israel for example, there are many restaurants that serve ONLY hummus. Nothing else. Not even falafel. They're called "hummus joints" and they are extremely popular! This is the foundation of Hummus Elijah but I added some other popular dishes to bring more diversity to the restaurant.
I'm very happy you enjoyed the food but to give us a mediocre score despite the fact that you enjoyed the food just because we are vegetarian is a bit harsh. You came to dine in a vegetarian restaurant and was disappointed that the menu was vegetarian. I think perhaps there was a misunderstanding of expectations. Anyway, you are always invited to dine with us and I wish you all the best and hope to see you soon eventhough we don't serve meat.
