The Mediterranean diet is known as the world’s healthiest diet. Packed with protein and vitamins, the food is cooked in healthy fats like olive oil and is largely plant-based. Hummus Amongus, an organic fast food and catering company, was started by two brothers (Adam and Saleh Siwwi) in Bedford who grew up eating Mediterranean meals.

Their inspiration for this shop started a few years ago when they were working the corporate life and were always on the go and traveling. With not much time each week to cook and with few healthy restaurants in the area, the guys set off to create a clean-eating restaurant that actually offered tasty food. So they launched Hummus Amongus with the purpose of providing fast, flavorful, and nutritious food without sacrificing taste, quality or time.
The fast-casual restaurant offers a menu that’s gluten-free and dairy-free, as well as carries vegetarian and vegan options. They offer the fresh ingredients with nothing from cans and preservatives. It’s great to a business like this that offer quality food at an affordable price!
Hummus Amongus is open every day but Sunday, offering area-businesses and residents a healthy place to stop by for lunch and dinner. Their store is also popular for its catering and home delivery (within 10 miles).
The menu offers full breakfast, lunch and dinner options at great prices. Each combo comes with your choice of a side and a drink.
I began my meal with a couple of appetizers (because I can’t say no to hummus and falafel!).
The falafel below (called Crunch Puppies) is made from ground chickpeas and is typically deep-friend, but not here. These tasty bites are completely cholesterol free, making it a delicious guilt-free snack!
Choose from one of the three hummus dips (or mix and match): original, spicy and eggplant. Personally, I’m a huge fan of eggplant so this one didn’t disappoint. And of course, you can’t go wrong with some pita bread. (This is the Mediterranean style of course!)
Next up, I tried out the Crunch Wrap with chicken, veggies and a dairy-free sauce similar to tzatziki sauce. This was definitely my favorite item from the menu since its light and packed with flavor. A vegetarian option is also available. Grab a side to go with it such as the Greek Noodles, house salad or a soup (lentil or their award-winning black bean soup!).
(Note: The salad shown below is a sample size.)
Here’s a healthy taco you won’t find anywhere else! The Mediterranean Taco comes topped with your choice of chicken or beef (or choose the vegetarian option), veggies and your choice of sauce (spicy or bold sesame).
Check out other meals such as the BBQ Gyro sandwich and pita sandwiches, too!
