The Hummus House
Time Out Says
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.
