We rated Bristol’s best houmous so you don’t have to
Just let me dip
In my kitchen the only item that never seems to run out is houmous. We, the student population love the stuff. And why wouldn't you, you can pair the chickpea dip with pretty much anything and it'll taste amazing.
Luckily in Bristol we have plenty of options across the city for any chickpea loving people out there, so we decided to rate the best for you.
Eat a Pitta
For anyone who lives in city centre accommodation you have probably wondered past the Eat a Pitta store in the middle of Broadmead (and the best kind of day is when they do tasters) They specialise in their falafel pittas and boxes and certainly do not disappoint.
Locations – Stokes, City Centre, St Nicks Markets, Clifton Triangle
Personal Recommendation – Falafel box with Houmous. (£2.50 is a fucking bargain mate)
Essential Rating: Solid 6.5/ 10
King in the name, king of flavour. These guys do one of my favourite things to to eat in the world, the ‘falloumi’ wrap, which is fried halloumi, falafel and a whole load of salad added in. It tastes seriously good and is certifiably addictive.
Locations – Cotham Hill and the Harbourside.
Personal Recommendation – Falloumi Wrap or Pitta (Although sadly this is only available in there Cotham Store!!)
Essential Rating: Definitely 9/10
Matina Middle Easter Kitchen
Although this one doesn't specialise in houmous, there wraps are ridiculously flavourful, both meat eaters and veggies can satisfy their houmous cravings here. These guys certainly know how to work with flavour.
Location: St Nicholas Market
Essential Rating: 7/10 for their houmous (..9/10 for being flavour experts.)
If you've been in Bristol over summer, after a chill out and some bevvies in Castle park, you may have walked past the Edna's Kitchen Kiosk. Their boxes are something that can become addictive if you've tried it.

Essential Rating: 7/10 for flavour
