Date of Last Visit: Saturday, December 14th

The Victim: Kiwi musician Flip Grater

The Damage: Very little.  

The Background: I like gimmicks. An all hummus restaurant? Sign me up. Why I haven't been here sooner, I don't know. (Same for Mother Mash. Must get there in 2009!)

I'm taking New Zealand singer-songwriter Flip Grater on a foodie tour of London. In the freezing, pouring rain. We're both soaked through, so there have been many stops. First, Borough Market. Then, Ottolenghi and Paul A. Young. Then Fernandez & Wells. Followed by Yauatcha and Flat White and finally, Hummus Brothers. Hummus Brothers was Flip's idea, and it's a good one. Because Flip is a vegetarian, and a non-dairy vegetarian to boot.

The Entrance: I'm immediate intrigued by the number of folks hanging out with laptops. Hummus Brothers offers free Wi-Fi. As someone who eats a lot of hummus and spends a lot of time online, well I think I've just stumbled across nirvana.

The Service: Our server is gorgeous. Really. His eyes are a startling shade of blue, and I like how he leans down to our level. He makes some suggestions without prompting. We order the mushroom hummus, along with some carrot sticks and falafal balls. He throws in an extra falafal ball for free. Truth be told, I wasn't a big fan of the falafal. But I liked the hummus. It had a really smooth texture with a very distinct sesame flavour. Mushrooms aren't my favorite things, but as Flip was the guest, mushrooms it was. And they were nice.

The Verdict: Cheap. Friendly. Fun. I'd go back here.

More about Flip: You can read her write-up of our day together on her site here. And here's a photo I took of Flip while we were at Fernandez & Wells.

And P.S., my dear readers. I missed you. Did you miss me?

I LOVE Hummus Bros – so glad you found it! They do a cool lottery as well if you sign up on their website, where you can win things like a free drink or a free portion of hummus. I’ve won a few times so it’s better than the National Lottery!

Welcome back Krista. I love that London can support a hummus specialist restaurant!

Great foodie tour of London …what would mine be ?? Will post that shortly.

Although mine would be littered with wine venues….does that say something about me ???
