We hadn’t even have the chance to get used to the idea that there’s falafel in China, and now we’re told that there’s hummus in Japan. A lot of it.
It’ll be old news if I’d tell you that we’re fashionably late after Japan in many of the things we do. And it’s always fascinating to see how Japanese trends and inventions find their way to the west.
But I got to admit – when we started this blog last year, and wondered if it is possible that we are the first, it never occurred to us that our most promising contender is a Japanese site. (update: which has closed since).
Sadly, this Hummus World, seem to have lived, flourished and parished, all during the too short period of between March and August 2005 (when the last news item were posted). During which it’s beautiful owner had reviewed some 30 hummus places in New-York and Japan (in and around Tokyo). So if you’re going to Japan it’s still a source worth of checking.
And well, a hummus site authored by a beautiful Japanese girl… who would have thought of that…It’s a shame she stopped writing, and I do hope she’ll reconsider. Meanwhile, I sent her an email (which was returned unread), telling her she should do something about her hummus recipe – especially the “Coliander” (!) thing.
