Over 15 years of experience in food preparation and presentation, Tarek strives to bring the authentic taste of Lebanon to the country he has learned to love so much and which he now calls his own. Yet another project supporting a local Columbus neighborhood, Tarek bought the location from a friend who had previously offered Mediterranean cuisine in the Bethel Road area. The name “Mr Hummus & Falafel” gained so much traction in the Grandview area that he decided to modify it for his restaurant under the label Mr. Hummus Grill to denote the ampler options in his menu.
Tarek has created the menu himself and will be placing his touch on all the dishes, but there will also be a Lebanese sous chef, promising an authentic experience and an explosion of flavor in every dish.
While the guiding light to Tarek’s success comes directly from his mother, the greatest motivation to move forward is born directly from his son Adam, who has now become the #1 reason to anything and everything related for the Tarek Albast legacy.
