Shalvi posted on 09 August

Admit it, there are very few things in this world that can match up the goodness of a delicious hummus platter. So, to make life easier, here’s a list of places in Mumbai that rate very very high among the city’s hummus-lovers.

Glocal Junction

One of our favourite places to gorge on delicious hummus, the Arab Ki Thali {muhammara, hummus, baba ghanoush, lavash and pita} is ideal if you’re looking for a quick bite that keeps you full for a while. Also, their quirky cutlery adds to the fun.

Price: INR 170

Colaba Social

It may your favourite Friday night party destination, but there’s a whole lot more to Social than its fabulous bar menu. Known for its quirky plating up techniques, the Social makes a mean Achmed’s Mezze Platter comprising falafel, hummus, baba ghanoush, tabbouleh, cheese awesomosas {unlike your regular samosas. Seriously so good}, and pita bread.

Price: INR 290

Social is also present in Khar, Palladium Mall, Todi Mills and Fun republic. Find the outlet closest to you here.

Country Of Origin

With three outlets in the city and frequented by many in each vicinity, this cute bakery is highly recommended for the varieties of hummus it serves. From the regular and paprika hummus, to the roasted garlic and basil and chilli hummus, lovers of this middle eastern dish will not be disappointed here.

Price: Starting from INR 180

This pet-friendly café may be famous for its burgers, but what you may not know is that they are equally popular for their hummus {they even export it to Dubai}. While they have their drool-worthy garlic flavoured hummus, they also rummus {which is basically hummus made with rajma}. Served with wheat toast, we’re certain that this will be a hit with everyone.

Price: Starting from INR 140
