We couldn’t resist recommending the Hummus Club as another scenic place in Perth to get down on one knee. Because what’s more scenic than hummus?

Their slogan, ‘In Hummus We Trust’.
They couldn’t be more right, there’s no way your partner is saying no when there is hummus on the table. Trust us, trust them, trust hummus, trust yourself.
You’ve got that ‘yes’ in the bag, or should we say bowl.
