Dageraadplaats (or literally dawn square) in the Zurenborg district is where Frances Van Assche and Frederik Vercammen found a home for Humm, to preach the vegetarian and zero-waste lifestyle. Overgrown with plants, the room vibrates with hip and organic vibes, from breakfast to dinner. Here, vegetarian cuisine is a matter of flavors and colors, and if you want to capture the experience fully, dive headfirst into the “Humm Experience” platter, a great mix mezze, salads and breads to share. The deluxe breakfast sings the same tune, as hummus, baba ganoush, muhammara (roasted pepper and pecan nuts), arayes (filled pita), fattoush, croissants, pitas, sourdough bread, peanut butter, jam, yogurt and homemade granola all file out. Otherwise, if you’re going solo, opt for an awesome Persian sandwich: King Funghi with mushrooms, peanut butter, coleslaw and pomegranate; or Return of the Pita filled with Humm-mix (chickpeas, eggplant, seitan), cabbage and white tahini; before finishing with baklava so sticky it’ll glue your fingers together. // Kiko Zushi
