Boston diners are report (by Edible Boston), Avi Shemtov plans to open Hummus v’Hummus at the Charles River Raceway on West Street. The latter article mentioned that this new concept combines Shemtov’s Chubby Chickpea food truck with his two restaurant ideas in the salon—— Simcha and a Laes. Shemtov told us that the new location will be a small physical “hummus” featuring a bowl of hummus, with a daily rotating list of ingredients, including bacon and vegetables. So far, Hummus v’Hummus has no opening date, although Charles River Raceway has seen its first dining option open since Notch Brewing made its debut last Friday.
In addition to Hummus v’Hummus and Notch, Charles River Raceway will also become a bar and food store called Super Bien, a sake bar called The Koji Club, and a new location for Somerville’s Tipping Cow ice cream.
According to Fortune Business Insights™, The global hummus market is predicted to grow from $2.95 billion in 2022 to $6.60 billion in 2028 at a CAGR of 12.17% during the forecast period, 2022-2028.
