I really enjoyed David Hammond’s “ode to hummus” in the Dec. 21 Wednesday Journal (“In the Holy Land, hummus stays hot”). I completely agree that the best hummus is purchased in a restaurant as opposed to a store. But I’d like to point out that, in addition to Jerusalem Café, delicious hummus is available at North Avenue Falafel, 6814 W. North Ave. in Chicago (in the 7/11 strip mall on the corner of North and Oak Park Avenue). And you can park right in front for free! Once you’ve tasted their hummus, I promise you’ll never buy it in a store again.
