According to the travel website, the city is “having a bit of a cultural renaissance”. The article highlights Lebanese cuisine favorite such as h’risset ‘akkub and fatteh. Ironically, there was no mention of hummos or kebbe neye, which in our opinion should be on top of any Lebanese food favorite list.
This is what T+L had to say about Beirut:
Lebanon’s capital city, Beirut, is having a bit of a cultural renaissance—and it’s not just new museums like the striking Aïshti Foundation that have attracted international attention. There’s arguably no better way to sense the friendliness and enthusiasm of Beiruties than by enjoying fresh a meal at Tawlet, a fantastic Lebanese restaurant in the hip Mar Mikhael neighborhood (order goat tartare and the unusual mountain specialty, h’risset ‘akkub: a lamb porridge with wild thistle). Even breakfast here is exciting: order Al Soussi’s fatteh, a traditional dish of toasted pita, chickpeas, yogurt, and pine nuts.
It’s nice to see the Lebanese capital in the news for something positive, instead of the usual negativity that heads our way due to the situation in the region and our garbage crisis (which still exists).
