In case you haven’t noticed, hummus is kind of a big deal right now.
It’s a plant-based, healthy, and delicious dish that can be paired with just about any meal at any time of day.
So it definitely makes sense that Hummus Express, a local Vancouver hummus-maker, would follow up their first Gastown pop-up in January with another event in order to give the people what they want – more hummus!
The next one-day pop-up is taking place on Main Street at The Cottage Bistro on Sunday, February 26 from 10 am to 2 pm.
Made just hours before it’s served, Hummus Express’ dishes are made with preservative-free vegetarian and vegan ingredients. Their authentic recipe for this Middle Eastern specialty is served as a meal with a variety warm toppings, sauces, and spices.
The first pop-up was such a success that co-founders Adi Kabazo and Jay Eidelman (also Hummus Express’ Executive Chef) wanted to pick a larger space for round two in order to accommodate the demand.
Diners at the pop-up can expect an authentic Jaffa-style brunch which includes Hummus Express fan-favs like masabacha (warm chickpeas in tahini), shakshuka (spicy tomato stew), and mushrooms sautéed with onions and cumin.
Pop-up attendees can also look forward to warm pitas and falafel, and a fresh-chopped Israeli salad, along with a “never before seen dish” that the Hummus Express team ensures will be a “monster hit”. For beverages hummus lovers can enjoy coffee, soda, and a full bar after 11am.
To reduce wait time for a table, diners can go to the front of the line by reserving a spot here.
When: Sunday, February 26 from 10am to 2pm
Where: The Cottage Bistro, 4470 Main Street, Vancouver
