Best of Canberra – Hummus

By Sophia Carlini - 23 December 2014 20

hummus4

One of the best party foods ever invented would have to be bread and dip, specifically hummus. It is made of the simplest ingredients; chickpeas, salt, lemon, garlic, tahini paste and maybe some cumin. Despite the easy recipe I always personally find that hummus always tastes different, depending where you get it.

This week I want to find Canberra’s best hummus … and yes, I know it can be home made … but ain’t nobody got time for that, especially at this time of the year.

Where is Canberra’s best hummus?

What’s Your opinion?

I thought the fig n olive was a cafe type thing. Do they sell their hummus in take away containers ?

They sure do mate.

I agree that it is the best hummus in Canberra. The longer you eat it (ie the closer to room temp it gets) the tastiest it becomes, too.

The same family owns Little Istanbul in the Tuggers town centre, which has the same excellent stuff.

This would have to be the most boring topic ever on RiotAct.
The stuff looks and tastes like floor tile glue.

I find it interesting that you would know what floor tile glue tastes like.
Thanks for reading anyways, hopefully future topics will be of more interest to you.

I use tile glue to repair my dentures.

The vapours! Your posts are starting to make more sense now.

There’s a guy at the Bus Depot Markets who has the BEST HUMMUS EVER. And the best beetroot dip, and the best pumpkin dip, and the best everything.

The absolutely best hummus can be found at the EPIC markets. There’s this guy who sells all kinds of dips, olives, soups, etc. He makes some amazing hummus – there are a few variations and all are good.

Could be the same guy Alexandra is talking about. I mean, this guy have some great dips too including beetroot and pumpkin. I’m not a frequent dweller at the Bus Depot Markets, so can’t really tell.

I reckon it’s the same guy. He also has Turkish sweets at Bus Depot Markets.

It tastes delicious! If it tastes the same as floor tile glue, maybe that’s what we can substitute it for in this era of budget emergency etc.

Also, just as a side note – I think the best hummus you can get in a supermarket is the Obela brand. So good.

I know the guy you’re talking about but I actually found his dips to be quite bland …. I think the Bus Depot Markets are finished until 11 Jan too …

Really?! Maybe you went on a bad day? Or maybe I’m not a seasoned dip expert yet haha
