We love hummus. You love hummus. The whole Goddamn world loves hummus. It’s pretty much a human condition to love hummus. So here are the hummuses we are loving in Sydney right now, as a celebration of the creamiest, carbiest dip of all.
At Kepos & Co they make the hummus at the table, crushing hot, soft chickpeas into a rough paste in a pestle and mortar in front of your eyes and topping it with fruity olive oil. Order the house-made flatbread on the side – it’s soft, thick and puffy, almost like a focaccia, but charred.
At Shenkin, hummus isn’t just a side dish; it’s the main event. They serve it five ways on their ‘hummus plates’ – topped with minced beef; fava beans and boiled egg; grilled eggplant; mushrooms and onions, or solo. Plus you get two falafels and pita bread on the side for dipping. And you can even get it delivered to your door by foodora. True story.
