You can't go home again...
Or so they say.
Sunnin is an old institution in LA that's been around for nearly 20 years.
They used to be a hole in the wall place that had cheap pricing and gave a lot for that money.
But now they've grow. They've built a new much fancier place across the street and unfortunately while you do get more of a seating experience in the new place - in terms of food they seemed to have deteriorated.
I don't know what changed. I really don't. But something of the old fashioned magic is gone.
I ordered Hummus as a take away and for $6.00 - which is their basic price they gave me a tiny portion of Hummus in a take out box.
What was that about?
For $6.00 take away you can't just get the same amount of Hummus you'd get on a place if you were sitting there.
Also, the Hummus itself was good but not great. It didn't taste that fresh and it didn't have that extra punch that the old Sunnin used to have.
I don't know what the story is. Maybe I just came there on a bad day - but the fact they moved to a bigger and nicer place should have motivated them to be better than the old Sunnin. They should have given more food for a cheaper price rather than give less food for a higher price - cause that's always the best way to eventually lose your core audience of Hummus lovers like myself that hate to feel they're cheated.
Since the Old Sunnin had such a good reputation I'll be back to the new Sunnin and hopefully they will improve. I'm hoping they will but one never knows.
