International Hummus Day is May 13, and what better way to celebrate than by sampling the delicious spread at spots across Palm Beach County? Here are a few of our favorites.

Mana Greek Fusion, Jupiter

Locals swear by this vibrant spot inside Harbourside Place. Mana makes its hummus from garbanzo and northern beans, and also has a robust menu of Greek dishes, from tableside tzatziki service to stuffed grape leaves and moussaka. 

Christopher’s Kitchen, Palm Beach Gardens

Known for its vast plant-based offerings, Christopher’s Kitchen serves its hummus with crudités and gluten-free pita. It tops the spread with tahini cream and zhug, a Middle Eastern hot sauce of sorts, traditionally made with green herbs and chilies. 

The Mediterranean Market & Deli, West Palm Beach

A go-to lunch spot for those who live and work in downtown West Palm, this market makes and sells numerous authentic dips, pies, salads, wraps, and more. The hot and spicy hummus is a must-try. 

Amar Mediterranean Bistro, Delray Beach

In addition to a classic hummus mezze, you can enhance your chickpea puree with chicken shawarma or lamb. Be sure to save room for dessert—hello, baklava!  

Medi Terra, Boca Raton

The best way to experience this family-run restaurant is to share many small dishes. We recommend the hummus with grilled za’atar pita (of course) as well as the goat cheese–stuffed piquillo peppers and the Galician-style octopus with smoked paprika.
