Pass the hummus bowls at this Israeli street food offering in South Melbourne

You’ve had poke bowls and smoothie bowls, but how about hummus bowls? That’s the signature dish at this South Melbourne Israeli diner, where the smooth chickpea staple comes topped with falafels, lamb, mushrooms, cauliflower florets and spit-roasted chicken. You’ll also find chicken shawarma, falafel and sabich (boiled egg, fried eggplant, chips and tahini) in pita; and a jumbo challah schnitzel which is an entire loaf of challah filled with chicken schnitzels, matbucha sauce, roasted eggplant and pickles that feeds three to four people. The guy behind the Left-Handed Chef is chef and owner Ehud Malka, who was born in Jerusalem and worked in Israel as a pastry chef and baker. He came to Australia to continue his patisserie studies and opened the café in 2012. 



Address: 219 Park St
South Melbourne
Opening hours: Wed-Sun noon-8.30pm
