Sir Hummus makes a familiar food in a slow way. Brothers Guy and Dori plus lovely Lior, have come all the way from Israel via London to bring us their heavenly handmade hummus.
It takes 24 hours to make this familiar food according to their special recipe. No oil is used, but it is liberally drizzled over the top when it comes time to eat.
You can drop by Sir Hummus for a filling lunch that includes fresh pita bread and a flavorful side salad. The hummus can be topped with egg or beef, but is definitely filling even without these additions.
The airy light hummus is delicious, the warm pita breads are flavorful but my favorite part had to be the lemony green hot sauce on the tables. I am a huge fan of hot sauces and this was one of the best I have tasted. Perhaps a mild variety of zhug? I’ll have to enquire next time and beg for the recipe (or a gallon jug to take home with me).
I often make my own hummus at home and it definitely does not take me 24 hours, more like 24 seconds. I like my easy hummus but there is a world of difference between my hummus, what you get in a tub at the grocery, and the slow food style hummus that Sir Hummus produces. You can taste the love and care.
Stop in Tuesday through Sunday but try to get there early. Sir Hummus is popular and sometimes sells out!
