First Hummus, Now Chicken — Culinary Ways To Solve the Middle East’s Problems

First Sacha Baron Cohen as Bruno wanted to solve the Middle East conflict with hummus, now Larry David wants to give his take on food as an element of the conflict. Sunday’s episode of “Curb Your Enthusiasm” took a snarky look at Al Abbas, a Palestinian chicken spot in Los Angeles, which happens to have a location next to Goldblatt’s Deli — a culinary turf war ensues. Check out the culinary themed episode on the Arty Semite.

(P.S. Eater reported earlier today, that the episode’s actually filmed in a Lebanese restaurant called Sunnin in LA.)
