A bold and fiery specialty, Taziki’s harissa sauce is made from red peppers and chili peppers mixed with a variety of herbs, spices and olive oil for a hot and spicy taste.

“I felt we needed to spice up some of the menu items with a little spice,” said Taziki founder Keith Richards. “Adding harissa does just that. I am sure the new Spicy Harissa Hummus and Spicy Harissa Chicken will become new favorites for those who want a touch of spice.”

Taziki has one Spicy Harissa hummus and some new ones Spicy Harissa chicken items to give their menu a bold new flavor profile. The new offerings headline an upcoming new menu structure with more options and fewer categories for a refined customer experience.

The Spicy Harissa Hummus is Taziki’s traditional hummus mixed with a special harissa sauce and topped with spicy chili oil for an extra bold taste and served with pita chips or chilled vegetables. The Spicy Grilled Chicken Sandwich is Taziki’s traditional chicken breast seasoned, grilled and tossed with harissa sauce and topped with American cheese and grilled onions, served with mayo on a kaiser roll with fries and a choice of a homemade side.
