Toronto restaurant known for hummus permanently closed due to lockdowns
A Toronto restaurant known for serving up hummus has closed all of its locations permanently.
The Hummussiah burst onto the scene with a location at 113 Bond St. as well as a collaborative location at Kensington bar Supermarket that operated while the venue wasn't doing regular live programming.
Their warm hummus bowls came with toppings like shawarma, chickpeas, falafel, egg, and spicy schug hot sauce.
Now, both locations where you used to be able to get them are permanently closed.
The Supermarket collaboration ended in November 2021, with Hummussiah posting on their social media to let people know the partnership would be finishing up.
From there, that's the last post for the hummus bowl restaurant on Instagram, their bio still reading "Closed until further notice."
It turns out rather than being closed until further notice, they actually closed permanently on January 15, 2022.
A chef and partner for Hummussiah tells blogTO that in short, the Bond location closed because of lockdowns. Fortunately for nearby Ryerson students returning to in-person classes, it's just recently been replaced with a location of Chachu's that opened on September 3.
The former chef for Hummussiah also says he's at work on some new projects including hopefully opening a new upscale Middle Eastern restaurant, so this may not be the last Toronto has seen of creative hummus bowls.
