‘Give Peas a Chance’ is the catch phrase of this hummus-obsessed eaterie, which to me is quite ironic considering the poor old chickpeas in the hummus here are blasted to smithereens and smoothed out so that they might never have existed. Tahini dominates, with little grain or texture to indicate the presence of any peas whatsoever. If you like tahini, of course, then you will love their houmous – but I wonder why they don’t offer more variety in their offering; chunky, lemony, light, thick …etc. There are so many variances possible, it seems a shame to stick to one.
Other than it’s namesake, everything else is delicious at Hummus Bros which has meant I have gone back a couple of times. The salads are all great, it is good value and very easy and efficient. The tabouleh, falafel and tzatziki are all lovely and for me this is a great lunch option as the cheap and fresh pitta’s mean you will definitely be filled up.
VERDICT – despite the fact I am not a fan of the hummus, Hummus Bros is a great concept which delivers a good, affordable and tasty lunch. Maybe just don’t get the hummus [quite hard to avoid I guess]?
SURROUNDINGS – pretty nondescript, bench tables in a spacious setting mean you can eat in should it take your fancy.
