• hummus like you’ve never tasted!

    hummus bros in soho is one of my favorite restaurants to hit up when in london. we’ve written about them before, and on a recent visit they were just as delicious.

    the way it works is: you get a hummus base with some pita, and then choose between their numerous vegan-friendly toppings. they’ve got vegetable salad, guacamole, and cumin chickpeas…just to name a few. last time we were there, we went with mushrooms and fava beans, both of which were awesome.

    the fava bean topped hummus was my favorite. the fava beans were prepared in a re-fried bean style (which i love), and were super creamy all mixed up with the hummus and oil. we got it with a side of vegan garlic dipping sauce, that was alright but a little too lemony for my taste.

    the mushroom hummus didn’t disappoint either. it came with stewed button mushrooms mixed with caramelized onions all atop the some of the best and creamiest hummus i’ve ever tasted.

    they really know how to do it right at hummus bros. their hummus is extra thick and full-bodied, and serves as a main dish rather than a side. if you are already a hummus fan, this place and their amazing toppings will blow your mind.

  • Hummus Bros reminds me of the restaurants in Israel where you order hummus in a fashion similar to how Americans order pizza: adding on any type of topping your heart desires to the hummus base. Someone really needs to bring that hummus model to the USA!

  • Wow, I must not be getting enough sleep because I thought the title of this was “Humans Like You’ve Never Tasted” and I thought it was a tongue in cheek title… time for a nap. But refrigerator hummus first 🙂
