We'll just come out and say it: we really love hummus. We have no problem with grabbing some pita and calling it dinner. And then there's tahini, the sesame paste that improves pretty much anything it touches. We love that too.
There are many, many ways to get your hummus and tahini on in this city, and here are a few: jumbles of spiced meat on beds of hummus, sandwiches that let tahini shine, and markets were you can buy some especially good stuff. Take a look at them all in the slideshow above or head straight to a dish below. Then tell us: where do you go for awesome hummus and tahini?
