YUMMY!!!! To take the taste of Palestine back home and make the best hummus ever, buy some Tahini (seame paste, a main ingredient for hummus) from Nablus. There are several brands:
- Alul, which a rooster on the plastic container
- Karawan has a bird on the container
- Dove tahini, assuming with a dove
One tip: ask the shop to wrap the tahini VERY WELL, mostly in cling-film and then in a plastic bag. You do not want this all over your clothes.
Fun fact: the arabic word for sesame is sim-sim.
