If you're ever in the mood to pass off a mound of fried dough as lunch, head to Hoomoos Asli for the Mellawach Sandwich ($7.75): a hard-boiled egg with hummus, Israeli salad, and tahini. The dough is sweet, greasy, and a little raw in the middle—like the paratha, the wrap of a kati roll, but even thicker. The hummus, hard-boiled egg, and salad of tomato and cucumber all pair nicely, but even in a room of dough-lovers, the consensus was that this might have worked better in a pita.
