Warming Lunch at The Hummus Club, Trinity Arcade
Finding myself in the city for a hectic run around kind of day also meant I had the opportunity to lunch. Woohoo! It’s been a while since I’ve spent lunchtime in the city and I definitely miss the buzzing atmosphere and access to an elaborate spread of eateries in every nook and cranny of the CBD!
With rain falling down on the terrace and me having forgotten the umbrella, I retreated into Trinity Arcade where I found The Hummus Club, a middle eastern pop up eatery. I ordered the ‘shroom’ opting for the gluten free option, replacing bread with a falafel. I was famished and the contents of the bowl looked really tantalising as I made my way to a free table in the food court, the drizzling of olive oil around the edge had me a little excited. I love olive oil! There are a whole bunch of condiments at the counter to go crazy in your bowls, if you wish. Today though, I will try the dish as is.
Potted in the middle of the creamy hummus were juicy pan fried mushrooms and fresh tasting cucumber cubes. I enjoyed the earthy flavours of garlic and onion coming through, and the falafel (not deep fried!) with the tahini sauce was saved to the end. Saving the best for last.
Before I tucked into my bowl of shroom I was craving hearty, fresh and warm, and happy to say lunch from The Hummus Club was exactly that. A balance of a substantial and healthy – it was wonderful! Do not let hummus fool you, it’s quite filling and more than just a party dip!
I really appreciate dining at eateries that serve good quality ingredients, because it really shines in the meal, and these days it’s a big driver in where I’m going to eat next. If you’re the same have a read of The West Australian’s article, about owners, Ziad and Kaitlin Zammar and their principles behind The Hummus Club.
