Hooray for the houmous at this cheery spot

Let’s start with Falafa’s houmous – a rich, creamily-textured, nutty-flavoured delight. Moving on to the falafel that gives this new spot its name, it’s crunchy on the outside, soft and squishy inside. The pitta is perfectly fluffy. Everything is exactly as it should be, and that helps to explain why the place has already gathered a legion of fans.

Pristine and comfortable, the decor is nothing you’d write home about – but it isn’t about the look, it’s about the food. Choose two flavours of houmous – classic, say, and olive – plus bread and pickles for R$17.50; or go for a Falafa sandwich with a wonderful tahini, mint, lettuce and cucumber, served in a nice plump pitta; then set it all off to a tee with a deliciously dark Colorado Ale from Riberão Preto.
