Pictures of Lebanese Food

Feasting in Lebanon

When in Lebanon, eat as one of the Lebanese! That's the philosophy YumSugar member FinnLover had in mind when she headed to the Middle East on a recent backpacking trip.
My husband and I spent the month of July backpacking in the Middle East.  One of the four countries we visited during our trip was Lebanon.  I was really looking forward to discovering the rich food culture there and I was not disappointed.  Every single meal we had in Beirut was amazing. Fresh vegetables, grilled meats, nuts, fresh salty cheeses, olive oil, flat breads... Every meal was like a delicious, healthy feast. Eating Lebanese food in Lebanon was an incredible experience.
