Hummus Gets Happy

“I worked downtown for about a decade, and I always wished there was a place where I could get tasty, cheap, healthy food quickly,” says Hlynn Kenny, who is filling the cheap, healthy, quick food void downtown with her soon-to-open Happy Hummus Hut—a vegetarian, vegan, raw vegan, and gluten-free food lunch counter.

Catering to customers with particular dietary concerns can be tricky business, so Kenny is putting HHH’s kitchen in the front window as part of what she calls a “Be Your Own Health Inspector program,” to set customers’ minds at ease. “We take Celiac and allergies very seriously,” she says.

Inspect Happy Hummus Hut for yourself starting in mid-May at 208 Duckworth Street.

    I am thrilled about this new venture and can’t wait for it to open! Congratulations to Hlynn Kenny for having the courage to try something new, and for addressing an obvious need for an establishment that caters to those with dietary restrictions. Finally, a restaurant where I won’t feel like a weirdo! :)

    I have none of these restrictions and I’m still happy they are openening! I love it when new and different restaurants open up here! :)
