Hummus with bread and vegetables at Malek al-Foul

Malek al-Foul arguably serves the best hummus in Hamra or even in all of Beirut. Apart from hummus they offer foul (dip made from broad beans), baleela (chick peas with oil and spices), and mutabbal beitinjan (crushed roasted eggplant with sesame paste, oil and spices) as vegan dishes. They come with bread, tomatoes, onion, fresh mint, and pickles.

The restaurant is quite small, beautifully simple and unpretentious. It closes some time during the afternoon, but sometimes they run out of mutabbal around noon. They don't have a shop sign outside, so look for the "beauty bag" sign and take the shop right next to it, before the small vegetables shop close to Sidani Street.

Staff speak Arabic and are very sweet. They will not only take time to answer questions you have about the food, but they will even fill your own bowls and containers if you want to have take away without using plastic.
