It’s Friday 13th. Let go of your premonitions, tear off some warm pitta and get dipping, because today is Hummus Day. Yes my little chickpeas; for all of you dip-lovers out there, today is a day we celebrate hummus (or houmous – we don’t care, it all tastes delish) by eating it for breakfast, lunch and dinner. So here are three places to get your fix.
1. Arabica, Borough Market
Situated in the heart of Borough Market, Arabica offers a little sit-down after all that tasting. And the hummus is divine, served up with thin and crispy freshly baked bread. They also serve up a speciality hummus, with a spicy lamb fillet, served with pine nuts and Hook & Son ghee – all for £6.50.
2. Kenza, Devonshire Square
Because what’s the point of hummus without having about a hundred different mouth-watering things to dip in it? Visit Kenza if you’re in the mood for a serious Middle Eastern feast to go alongside your hummus. The restaurant itself is filled with authentic lamps and furnishings to truly get you in the mood… And you might be able to feast your eyes on some belly-dancing skills while you’re there.
3. Momo, Heddon Street
This authentically decked out restaurant is like something straight out of a Moroccan souk. Momo serves their hummus with fresh bread goes perfectly with the beautifully served hummus. If you’re feeling more adventurous, for dinner they have a chicken liver, pomegranate and hummus dish on the menu.
