Baker's Bake: Taste the Village Manousheh in Zalka

Bread & Bakeries

June 03, 2018 | Breakfast & Coffee | Mount Lebanon

It's a small bakery, probably like any other bakery, decorated with blue colors. This hole in the wall located on Zalka's internal road in Amaret Chalhoub has impressed me for the last two months; a unique manousheh, a halloumi burger, and the…

Upscale Knefeh: Drizzle Some Fruit Coulis on Top...

Breakfast & Coffee

May 02, 2017 | Desserts & Sweets

Who said Knefeh can only be enjoyed with sugar syrup? Having breakfast at Le Gray in Beirut, I ordered two plates of Knefeh and asked for some fruit coulis on the side. I wanted to try raspberry on one and apricot on the other. Melted cheese, a…

Zooba: Classy Egyptian Street Food

Lebanese/Middle Eastern

January 18, 2017 | Recommended | Middle East

The Egyptian version of Chipotle or what is closer to Pret a Manger is a big spot on. I walked into a place where I felt transported to New York. Traditional Egyptian food revisited with style and modernism. Very good food, real flavors,…

Zaatar w Zeit: An Unsuccessful Transformation!

Breakfast & Coffee

July 26, 2016 | Restaurants | Lebanon

Zaatar w Zeit has changed and bluntly speaking the new direction is somehow deceiving on so many levels. It's a wannabe diner inspired by Pret-a-Manger with a missing link somewhere. What was once a favorite diner is now a different…
