Hummus lovers – this is one you don’t want to miss…

Hummus is a dip much loved all around the world. So much so that there’s a special day to celebrate it, which happens to fall on May 13 next week.

To help celebrate International Hummus Day here in Dubai, Al Meada restaurant located in DoubleTree by Hilton Dubai, is adding in a Hummus Festival that will run at the same time as its iftar.

But a day isn’t enough for this delicious dip.

So the Hummus Festival at this authentic Lebanese restaurant will run from Hummus Day until Friday, May 17.

That’s five days of sheer chickpea goodness that you can eat as an appetizer, side snack, or share (if we must…) with your table.

You will find a selection of hummus flavours for you to dip, spread, or just eat straight off your plate such as pistachio, Beiruti and six other brand-new selections.

The usual iftar spread includes authentic Arabic cuisine that you can enjoy for Dhs139 throughout Ramadan after sunset until 10pm.

There even a live oud player to provide you entertainment and weekly raffle draws and more.

See you there!
