A few friends travelling to India asked me about the best Hummus in Mumbai. It's been awhile since I've travelled to India so my Hummus knowledge of that continent is a bit rusty. Would love to get advice from anyone who's travelled lately there for the best kept secrets there as well as the more traditional and famous Hummus places you encountered during your travels.

I don't trust Yelp and all the other large online sharing sites cause I've seen that even with my own reviews on these large websites - The negative reviews I've written on Yelp have been deleted without explanation.  I've even seen one Middle Eastern restaurant that I myself have given negative reviews on Yelp - together with dozens of other people who gave it negative reviews - and one day Yelp cleaned it up and deleted the negative reviews. Their rating moved from bad to good.  

I Googled around looking for Hummus in Mumbai and found this blogger - who lived in Chicago and moved to Mumbai and is now travelling and writing about healthy living. She created a blog called the India Edition. She has published her articles also on Huffington Post Canada & UK, Vagabomb and India Food Network.

Unlike some other blogs which feel like they were created as an advertisement - this one looks like the real deal promoting real good food that the blogger truly loved.

Thank you Danya for your honest blog.

Here's a direct link to her article on her blog - The India Edition:

If you press on the name of the restaurant below twice you'll get a link to the restaurant's page:

So please write us if you agree or disagree with Danya and also if you find additional great Hummus in India. And now to the article in THE INDIA EDITION:

Best Hummus in Mumbai

Hummus is one of my favorite snacks – you can make or buy it and keep it in the fridge for a day or two for easy access. It is filling and nutrient-rich and naturally vegan and gluten-free. Make it even healthier by eating it with fresh veggies like carrots, cucumbers and peppers. There’s something about restaurant hummus – it just tastes better. It took me a while to figure it out but I think I cracked the code! 
This one is the easiest for a quick lunch or snack – their hummus is always the same which is something I appreciate. Standard is key! They have several locations: at Cuffe Parade (the original restaurant but I haven’t been in years), Kemps Corner (a small cafe in Crosswords) and at Palladium Mall. 
This is my go-to home delivery order on a lazy Sunday evening or weeknight. Their hummus is super creamy from the tahini! 
The only fine dining spot on my hummus list, Souk is located on the top floor of the Taj Mahal Palace Hotel. They serve a more authentic range of Middle Eastern food – my favorite dish there is definitely the zucchini and aubergine fritters. The view is lovely as well.
