All of us lucky enough to have hung out in Mexico (or the likes of SF's Mission District) know that what we Americans call "Mexican food" ... ain't.

True Middle Eastern Hommous and Arabic Mezzeh are delights of the first order; Shaw's hommous (New England-style Hommous? Oxymoron?) ... and I've no doubt they mean well ... comes from another planet, if not galaxy.
