La Hummuseria opened in late September in Malasaña, in the centre of Madrid. Its menu is mainly composed of hummus and most of its options are vegan, except for a dessert -also it has one vegan; egg that appears as an extra for the hummus dishes and cow milk for tea and coffee.
The restaurant offers a menu for 9.50 euros that includes a bowl of hummus, three small tapas, bread, a drink and finally, tea or coffee. The letter also it includes salads and desserts. I tried the traditional hummus, the chickpea, but I liked the mushroom. The tapas were carrots, beets and tahini and pita bread. I loved the homemade iced tea with mint prepared leading to sugar, but not overly sweet.
As important as the food is the atmosphere you find in a place where you first walk and where you do not know. The waiters were very friendly and they knew exactly what being vegan, it seems obvious that this happens at a vegetarian, but sometimes … you bring surprises. Also the decor is simple but pleasant, accompanies and helps to enjoy the food. At the bottom is the usual arrangement in a restaurant with tables and chairs of various sizes and in the above, the atmosphere changes with tables, chairs and sofas. It is advisable to book to ensure you have a space on the main floor is more comfortable to eat.
La Hummuseria is in 8 Hernán Cortés street by Fuencarral street (Underground: Gran Via or Tribunal). Opened from Tuesday to Sunday from 13:30 to 16:30 hours and from Tuesday to Saturday from 20:30 to 23:30 hours. Closed Sunday evenings and all day Monday.
