Where to eat

Lebanon Traveler - - TOURING LEBANON -

If you fancy a snack, there are plenty of bak­eries in the vil­lage to choose from of­fer­ing manoushe, saj and kaak such as Leba El Am­rieh’s bak­ery (03 489904, opens from the end of May) and Ge­or­gette Badra’s bak­ery (71 190633). For de­li­cious gi­ant home­made piz­zas, head to Char­bel Touma’s pizze­ria (71 006192). His brother Elie Touma’s snack Yakka 3ol 3ol (03 783438) is known for its grilled chicken sand­wiches. On a sunny sum­mer’s day there’s noth­ing like the ice-cream of Surgel (03 191539, surgellb.com/branches, opens in May). Jac­que­line Hel­wanji, your host at Dar Qadisha (same de­tails as above), pre­pares lo­cal dishes and gen­er­ous break­fast spreads for her guests. Those with a sweet tooth must try her home­made jams and pre­serves, which she makes us­ing fruits and veg­eta­bles from her gar­den.
