THE history

The Hummuseria is for anyone in Madrid that loves wholesome food and obviously, hummus.

Their inspirations for the restaurant was Mediterranean markets - the smells, colours, music, people and of course, good food.

 All the food at La Hummuseria is vegetarian, healthy and fresh hummus being made in abundance a few times each day. The menu is perfectly sized so if you're going with a few of you, you can try a little bit of everything! There are 5 different types of hummus on the menu all served with warm, delicious pita bread and 3 different salads which accompany the hummus perfectly, they also prepare fresh tapas each week so make sure you ask them what's on the menu for that week.
