Vendor of the Week: Hummus Bros
A regular favourite in the picnic basket and perfect compliment to a crunchy crisp or carrot, hummus has found its way into our hearts! This delicious side dish or starter is however been at the epicenter of Levantine cuisine for many years as the traditional food of the historical region Bilad ash-Sham, as read in Arabic. This week’s vendors, some of our earliest adopters of the City Pantry model, have taken this historical delight and brought its consumption into the 21st century doing its heritage justice along the way.
When Christian and Ronen let their stomachs take charge on a glorious hot summers day of May back in 2003, they passed on the usual pizza and sandwich joints and stumbled across a specialist delicatessen on their meanderings. The delicatessen whilst vast in its array seem to be selling three main ingredients, pitta bread, hummus and olive oil. Within no time, may bowls were wiped clean. “I could eat a good meal like that everyday!” someone remarket. Christian and Ronen looked at eachother in that moment and a dream was born: to open a place dedicated to hummus.
Hummus Bros is about feeding you homemade hummus with mouth watering toppings, scooped off your own individual bowl with warm pitta bread, accompanied by refreshing salads, desserts & juices. Thery focus on taste, value for money, freshness & simplicity. They’re incredibly proud to be the only place in the UK to concentrate solely on what we love most - hummus. Not only this but Hummus Bros just may prove to be a healthy spot for lunch. Hummus is low in cholesterol, a great source of calcium and vitamin C as well as protein. It's great for vegetarians, vegans and people with food intolerances.
To enjoy the delicious goods you can visit one of their four sites around London based in Holborn, Soho, St Pauls and Exmouth Market. Due to the nature of the great tasting large portions with a great price tag, there is often a queue out of the door with city regulars getting their fix from either the range of wraps or one of their finest hummus pots.
