Hummus Bros Blogger Event

You know you eat too much hummus when the co-owner of Hummus Bros recognizes you! The St. Paul’s branch is far too close to my office building and It’s a good thing hummus is healthy because I have an unhealthy obsession.


I first visited the Wardour Street Branch in 2007 with my sister. I even have a photo of my first visit! I found it on my facebook with the caption “I’m smiling cause I like food”.

I think this pretty much sums me up!
I saw on Twitter that Hummus Bros were having a bloggers event and I jumped at the chance. They were inviting bloggers to taste their current menu and get some feed back.

The event was on the mezzanine level of their Holborn branch

When I arrived I was offered a glass of champagne. I thought it was a nice touch as they don’t serve drinks in the restaurant.

Hot spiced apple juice – one of my new favorites

As people arrived Christian went to each table and explained the menu, offered suggestions and explained about Hummus Bros. They offer hummus with a variety of toppings and fresh pita bread for dipping.They started Hummus Bros after college tired of endless sandwiches and pizza (the normal stuff most college kids live on!). They now have three locations in London and also operate a green business where possible.

They also cater for people with food intelerences. An interactive menu can be found online.

We could try any items on the menu that interested us. Nine times out of ten I always order the same thing when I go for lunch (guacamole topping) so I took this opportunity to try items I wouldn’t normally order. I shared a table with Shu from Hungry Female.

If I get a salad I usually get the Greek salad or the Tabouleh salad, they’re lovely and fresh. I got the falafel salad for something different this time. It is a massive salad! Definitely one to share with a friend. I’ve not had many falafals before but they tasted nice to me. The tzatziki on top is necessary as on it’s own it’s a bit dry. The three pieces of falafel sit on a salad of tomato and coriander salsa and cabbage.
I had a hot spiced apple juice for the first time. I loved this. It reminds me of the apple cider you get in the US during the fall. I can see this being added to my lunchtime routine!

I chose one of their new hummus toppings to try, Chicken Tikka Masala, I wasn’t that crazy about this topping. It was good for someone like me who doesn’t like spicy food, but Chicken Tikka Masala is supposed to be spicy. Unlike the chicken hummus the pieces of chicken in this were really small. I also thought it was a bit heavy, the topping with the hummus together.

I sampled the mushroom topping with caramelized onions. I enjoyed this topping. I enjoy the vegetables with the hummus a lot more than the toppings with meat. I sampled the aubergine salad from Shu’s plate. It had a very nice strong smokey flavor but the texture of the aubergine was a little too mushy for me.

If you’re a hummus virgin it’s best to start with a chicken hummus

Dessert at Hummus Bros is my favorite (surprise surprise!) A fresh mint tea is exactly what I needed after eating all of that hummus!

The flour less chocolate brownie is a treat. A soft dark chocolate delight. I could be wrong but I’m pretty sure I have memories of this being served warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream in visits past. It’s perfect on it’s own but this kind of brownie melts in your mouth when it’s warm.

I love baklava. I’m having dessert regret right now. I didn’t get a chance to have any and I really wish I had now.

The Malabi is a milk based dessert popular in The Middle East. I was so stuffed I didn’t get a chance to try it. I’m more of a chocolate gal anyway.

After
My favorite dishes at Hummus Bros are the ones that are the most simple. The salads and toppings that don’t have too much going on! The hummus is good enough on it’s own that pouring loads of chicken tikka on it isn’t necessary. The chicken hummus is in a simple tomato based sauce that doesn’t take away from the hummus.
Thanks to Hummus Bros and Christian for letting me come even though I’m a dessert blogger. I can’t wait to see what the future holds for these guys!
