Dahieh’s best pizza

Why in Dahieh specifically? Why not “The best pizza in Lebanon” instead?

And why don’t we see similar billboards in other places like Jounieh or Tripoli for example?

5 Things you can buy for 5,000L.L.

Although the new price lists for gasoline were effective as of yesterday, almost all gas stations didn’t start to sell at the new reduced prices until today!

Anyway, here’s a list of 5 things we can now buy for the 5,000 L.L we’ll be saving on every 20 liters 😀 (though I’m confident they’ll soon be increasing the prices again):

  1. 20 Bonjus pyramids OR Ghandour’s Tarboush
  2. 2 Beef burgers from McDonalds (You know the ones with only ketchup, a slice of pickle, and beef patty, I love them!)
  3. A big fat Tawouk sandwich from Malek Al Tawouk
  4. 5 rides on a public bus
  5. 5 DVD’s from Bourj Hammoud

What else?

Ahwet Leila to replace Ahwet El Ezez in Gemmayze

After all the rumors (that proved to be wrong later) about the possibility of a bank replacing Ahwet El Ezez in Gemmayze, it turned out it’s actually a 4th branch for Leila that will be replacing the old cafe.

Leila already has 3 branches in ABC Achrafieh, ABC Dbayeh, and Verdun. This new branch will be called “Ahwet Leila” to probably maintain the feel of its predecessor…

The quest for the best burger in Lebanon – Brgr Co.

I went to Brgr Co. some time around September last summer after all the promising photos and messages I saw on their Facebook page at that time, but unfortunately I got disappointed with my overall experience.

When I arrived there, I was surprised the place had only two tables occupied while Classic Burger Joint who’s just around the corner had a pile of people waiting for their turn to go inside.

Anyway, my first disappointment was the difference I noticed between the prices on their Facebook page at that time and their actual menus in the restaurant. Both menus felt overpriced anyway (14,500L.L for the 4oz burger, and 25,500L.L for the 8oz).

I started by ordering some onion rings which tasted average and looked weird.

The major disappointment was with the 4oz burger I orderd. The patty and topping were OK, nothing super as I was promised, and the bun was very dull! I guess the least one should expect from a burger place is to offer fresh buns right? Well, check how fresh mine was.

I know a lot of people who agree with me about Brgr Co. being an average place, but I also heard a lot of people claiming it is among the best burger joints in Beirut, at least that’s what Khaled thinks, “Brgr co one of the best burgers I’ve tried in town!”. And I really trust Khaled’s taste buds since I’ve met him once, and I know what he does. So people seem to be divided about the place!

I guess the only explanation for this is that their service could just probably be inconsistent… what do you think?

Great performance by The Fayha Choir on Arab’s Got Yalent!

It supports the choir financially and morally, which helps it to improve and perform at its best, locally or internationally. The choir is composed of nearly 50 males and females members, from Tripoli and suburbs citizens, who represent the Lebanese population with all its religions, social, political, economical affiliations. The choir’s repertoire includes Lebanese, oriental, as well as French, English, Latin, Armenian and other songs. This diversity reflects the choir’s openness to the human heritage.

Thank you Nour!
