Netherlands, Amsterdam Guide (B): Chickpeas, Glorious Chickpeas! in Amsterdam

Chickpeas, Glorious Chickpeas! in Amsterdam
So. Hummus. It seems to be officially a thing. I mean, of course there were places like Beyrouth and Orontes selling it forever – but now there are entire restaurants just dedicated to the humble chickpea purée. And a jolly good idea it is too, if you ask me. Hummus is cheap to produce, goes well with all sorts of other yummy stuff, and everyone loves it – even toddlers who will eat nothing else. (I know this because my friend’s baby went through a phase of eating nothing but hummus – even going so far as to suck it off the bread rather than waste those carb-calories.) So here, in no particular order, are my favourite places to eat hummus in Amsterdam.

Sir Hummus

Sir Hummus has a lunch vibe to it, which I guess is unsurprising since hummus makes a perfect midday meal. As I said, it was a while ago that I went here, but I do remember enjoying the hummus – and especially loving the little bottle of spikey, punchy, garlicky green sauce that comes with it. I don’t think there was a lot of choice in terms of hummus accompaniments (I think I recall the egg pictured below being one of only two options) and nor could you really buy much other than hummus. But hey, when the chickpeas are this good, who needs anything else?
