2 years ago

No matter where in the world you're traveling, you're going to eat. And if you plan to make that a very important part of your trip (which we suggest you do),consider heading to one of the worlds best cities for food.

 

No. 1 Beirut, Lebanon

Lebanons capital city, Beirut, is having a bit of a cultural renaissanceand its not just new museums like the striking Ashti Foundation that have attracted international attention. Theres 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, hrisset akkub: a lamb porridge with wild thistle). Even breakfast here is exciting: order Al Soussis fatteh, a traditional dish of toasted pita, chickpeas, yogurt, and pine nuts.
