Story
ever since i went to bahrain (a small country belonging to middle east asia) i never really liked shawarmas. then one day, my friend treat me a piece of shawarma and a can of soda after loosing a tennis match with me. i just took it so he may not be disappointed. however, i was finding myself finishing the whole shawarma as i keep on biting it every time i keep dipping it to the hummus of which i called it back then as white sauce. after the hearty snack, i didn't stop asking the waiter what's the name of the white sauce and how it is done? at first, he is hesitant to tell but i just keep on begging. then finally, he spoke to the chef and the chef called me in to his kitchen and ACTUALLY saw how this authentic sauce was made or commonly known as hummus or humous or homos. whatever. just try it and i hope you'll like it!
