Beiruti breakfast among the best around the world

Arabic breakfast.

“Al Soussi”, a small shop in Zaidaniyyeh offering traditional Lebanese dishes such as Foul, Hummus, Balila, and Fatte, was featured on CNN and Travel + Leisure list of top 100 places to eat like a local.

For more than 50 years, this pint-size kitchen in West Beirut has been serving an irresistible version of fatteh, made with layers of toasted pita, chickpeas, yogurt, and pine nuts. 961-1/312-145. Source

The place is quite popular in Zaydaniyyeh and Asiha Bakkar that you sometimes can’t set a foot inside the small shop due to the number of people waiting for their orders, especially in Ramadan at suhour time.

Thank you Ayman

    I’ve heard Al Soussi’s food praised time and again, but has any mapped it and tried it?

      I’ve tried it once long time ago, it’s good, but it’s just foul & hummos at the end, and I’m pretty sure almost every neighborhood have their own great “fawweil” who makes tasty foul and hummos too.
      I’ll try to post its exact location as soon as possible.
