Trend Watch - One Dish Wonders
A staple at drinks parties, picnics, office lunches and student kitchens, hummus has always been given side-dish status. But not any more. Hummus Brothers - the eatery as well as two co-founders behind it - gave the tasty chickpea dish the full star billing when they launched in Sho's Wardour Street, followed by a Holborn branch. The fresh, made-on-the-premises hummus contains absolutely no prevservatives, so even if you buy a take-away tub, you are advised to eat it within 24 hours. The hummus is served with a topping of your choice and accompanied by fresh, warm pitta bread (£4-£5). Although it sounds an unusual concept, the dish comes into its own whn teamed with toppings such as tomato chicken, mushrooms with caramelised onions and fava beans. Try the fresh mind and ginger lemonade or hot spiced apple juice infused with cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves.
