Why order one type of hummus when you can get six? To celebrate World Hummus Day, Mantoushe has launched a limited-edition hummus collection. For Dhs39, you’ll get six flavours of hummus in one pack. Flavours include classic, guacamous with avocado, sriracha hummus with chilli, sundried tomato hummus, jalapeno-mint hummus and beetroot hummus.

We’re big fans of the full mezze spread at Wafi Gourmet – and one of the standouts is the hommos with tahina (Dhs34), which has the consistency of whipped cream. Order it as part of a Middle Eastern feast, or with Wafi Gourmet’s Ramadan and Iftar menus.

Wafi Gourmet, delivery daily noon to 7pm. Tel: (04) 3244433. wafigourmet.com. Order via Deliveroo or Zomato.

The Lebanese street food masters offer five hummus variations that start with the classic base of blended chickpeas, tahini, lemon and garlic. Tempting toppings include chicken or beef shawarma (Dhs29), or the flavour-packed hummus Beiruti (Dhs21) laced with cumin, parsley and fava beans.

You won’t be disappointed if you order Al Hallab’s classic hummus (Dhs20), but if you’re after a textural treat, try the hummus fatteh (Dhs32) layered with pine nuts and crunchy pita bread. Or, for a more rustic take, order the hummus balila (Dhs20), which features coarsely crushed chickpeas, instead of the smooth blend.

When you dine in at Mezza House, the classic hummus (Dhs28) arrives as a voluminous peak, topped with boiled chickpeas, a drizzle of olive oil and shards of crispy pita. We can’t guarantee it’ll look quite so incredible via delivery, but it’s sure to taste just as good.

Purists, avert your eyes. The final hummus in our round-up won’t be everyone’s cup of tea, but for those who are feeling experimental, there’s the chocolate hummus from Tania’s Teahouse. It’s not on the current delivery menu, but we’ve got Tania’s chocolate hummus recipe here.
