The Hummus House

A tiny Lebanese restaurant in JLT
  • 1

Time Out Says

If ever a sequence of words was so perfectly tailored to get us all eager for a chickpea-based bite, we’d like to know about it, because those in the title of this Lebanese spot in JLT are magnificent.

Perhaps slightly disappointing is the lack of hummus available at The Hummus House, as despite listing a fair amount on the menu, only two variations are available on our visit.

Instant disappointment, but it’s short-lived, because the jalapeño hummus is a revelation, as is the massive selection of manakeesh you’ll find. And with prices starting at Dhs14, prices are as humble as the setting.

There’s no glamour about it, there are just a couple of benches and tables, and one solitary TV playing Friends.

The falafel comes stuffed with mozzarella or, as you’d expect, unstuffed – though we’d hope for a little more gooey cheese than the tiny nugget found in the middle. The falafel itself though is delicious, especially when coated in some of that fiery hummus.

There’s also a permanent three-for-two deal on the aforementioned manakeesh, and one of our favourites is the muhammara and labneh variety, which is tangy yet creamy, but you can’t go wrong with a classic akawi cheese version.

You’ll also find sandwiches and wraps, like the tasty halloumi and fattoush wrap, plus salads and a whole bunch more – and the majority of the menu is tailored to veggies, which is a touch that we simply adore from what is an extremely affordable meal.
