I like to plan. I’m also from a rural area and big cities can sometimes overwhelm me, so when visiting somewhere like London, I always make sure I have a reasonable idea of where I am going to go and what I am going to do in my time there. When I went for a short break a couple of years ago, I trawled through a range of guidebooks in my local library for recommendations of places to go and things to see. Whilst I am happier to be more spontaneous now, I’m so glad I planned for this trip, as it was how I first discovered and visited Hummus Bros. It appeared to be quite a small and quirky place, with great reviews on TripAdvisor, so I decided to try it out for some lunch. I was not disappointed and as a result it was top of my list of places to visit when I returned to London for a recent daytrip.
The concept behind Hummus Bros is to provide fresh, healthy and affordable produce. They have a menu which caters for vegans, vegetarians and meat eaters, as well as those with food intolerances. Everything is freshly prepared and all food is free from preservatives and additives. I was also pleased to discover on my recent visit that it is also now possible to have two toppings on your hummus bowl, rather than the one when I first visited.
The place itself is clean and practical. It is geared up to deliver food quickly and as such isn’t the place to go for a cutesy cup of coffee. However, the food is out of this world! If you like hummus, you will love Hummus Bros! The staff are friendly, and happy to explain the concept and menu to first timers. I chose a regular hummus bowl topped with chicken and guacamole, which came served with fresh warm pitta bread. My boyfriend had a large hummus bowl topped with beef and falafel salad. If you are going with someone, I would definitely recommend getting different toppings and sharing, in order to try out as many different things as possible.
My only regret is that Hummus Bros is currently only based in London. However, they do now have a book out which I have added to my wish list. If you are in the vicinity – try it. Give peas a chance!
