Syrian refugees offer levantine dips at various distribution points around Rome.
Hummustown is a new catering venture in Rome, provided by Syrian refugees who specialise mainly in levantine dips and have several distribution points around the capital, including at the city's UN agencies.
Hummustown offers falafel (chickpeas and seasoned with parsley, cumin and garlic), hummus (a dip made from cooked, mashed chickpeas blended with tahini, olive oil, lemon juice, salt), muhammara (fresh peppers, ground walnuts, breadcrumbs, and olive oil. It may also contain garlic, salt, lemon juice, pomegranate molasses, and sometimes spices (eg cumin). It may be garnished with mint leaves), mutabbal (cooked eggplant mixed with onions, tomatoes, olive oil and various seasonings), shamandar (cooked beetroot, tahini, yogurt, salt, garlic, extra virgin olive oil), and mutabbal batata ("Levantine Pure' - mashed patatos, blended with tahini, garlic, yogurt, olive oil, and salt).
