    The hummus at Cafe Mediterranean is also good. While there, try their baba ganoush.

    In the midst of Ash Monday, we got to try your recommendations to eat hummus at Hummus Elijah in Kapitolyo but it was full. So off to BGC and dining at Cafe Mediterranean which was surprisingly quite empty. Where have all the hip diners in BGC gone? ;)

    i dont know if i should post it here because it is technically not an ingredient but it is a prized assistant when preparing food. What brand of MANDOLINE would you guys recommend ? i know that one of the most popular is the all stainless steel BRON but the newer ones now have more attachments and advantages over the old school BRON.

    whats your preferred MANDOLINE and why ? if you can include year of purchase and price even better :)

    Mm...the cheapest one I can find online. Lol! Works well and cheap enough to replace without feeling the cost once it becomes stained.

    ^ Where can I get reasonably priced truffle oil, preferably less than 1liter. The ones sold by Santis are over 1k.

    Thanks to everyone who suggested places to get ingredients for my homemade hummus. I did try making one last night, and it came out not quite that hummus-y haha. Must’ve scrimp on an ingredient or two. Maybe after a couple more tries it’ll come out good.

    Pink salt is usually found in supermarkets. I bought Juniper berries in Santis before.

    Mm...ebi roe is easier to find. For cod roe, contact either Fujimart (they have a branch in QC) or New Hatchin in White Plains.
