Review: If I had to use one word to describe this plate of hummus, that word would be “terrible.” I hope, however, that I will never be limited to only one word because I need at least two. “Terrible” needs to be preceded by an adverb such as “absolutely” or “terribly.” This guy, Sander needs to think twice about slapping his name on this mush.
The only thing that leads me to believe that the Hummus from Small Bar isn’t from a jar or can is the fact that I came across two whole cloves of raw garlic. Even if the blender would have integrated the garlic into the rest of the mired garbanzo mush, the flavor would have been far too strong for even this garlic lover’s taste.
The best thing I can say about this plate of bar food is that the vegetables were fresh and the pita bread was acceptable and microwave-soft.
When at Small Bar, stick to the large beer list and stay away from the mediocre, expensive and half-assed food.
