Anyone tried hummus? It's mashed chickpeas, blended with olive oil, lemon juice, salt and garlic.

Great topic! Why? Because me, wife and daughter just had 'hummus' for the first time last week at the renowned Arab (Yemeni) restaurant, RESTORAN SABA (Saba Restaurant), in the sprawling nouvelle city of Cyberjaya just outside of Kuala Lumpur and next to its sister city of Putrajaya.

Actually, I didn't really know what hummus looked like before we went to Saba. I didn't know that it was shaped like a crater with a watery hole in the middle! I was imagining 'hummus' to be a dish of chunky beef or mutton. Gee! When it was served to me in a bowl, I thought the restaurant made a mistake! The bowl was white, and so was the edge of the hummus crater, so I could only see the hole in the middle of the crater since the rest of that hummus was camouflaged by the color of the bowl. My wife and daughter had the same vision too! Then the garcon pointed to the thick white hummus edge, so then only I knew it! But it tasted like some mashed saltless peanut. My wife said it was made of mashed pistachios..

Don't know if I would care for hummus again, tasted bland to me!
