    It's definitely tahini. It looks like tahini, it smells like tahini, it tastes like tahini, and it's made out of sesame seeds. It's tahini, I don't care what the people at Zankou want to call it.

    Yeah, just to clarify my earlier post, I don't frequent Zankou so I was speaking generically. My experience in Lebanese restaurants taught me that the garlic stuff is called toum, and some places make it like a thick sauce, while others make it drier like a paste. Tahini is a completely different and unrelated (other than also being delicious) thing.

    The stuff in the small container is toum (garlic sauce). The other, darker, sauce is tahini (sesame paste).

    I dont know...the tahini I buy from the mideastern grocery by my house and use to make hummus tastes no where near as good as Zankous.

    That's because they add garlic, olive oil and lemon juice to make it a sauce.

    I miss Zankou, I was a regular at the Pasadena and Glendale locations depending where I was when I got hungry. Wish they had one down here in San Diego.
