The Raclette Brgr with Cheese fries at Brgrco
As you all know by now, Brgrco is my favorite burger place in Beirut so it’s great to hear that they are finally delivering. I don’t know yet about the delivery prices as I couldn’t find them online but I hope they will be cheaper than the original ones.
The delivery number is: 01 333 511.
I spotted this stand in Tripoli but I’ve seen supermarkets selling them as well. It’s definitely a smart idea but they should cover the zucchini if they wanna sell them on the street.
I was at the opening of Kahwet Leila yesterday in Hamra. The new branch is facing Piccadilly theater next to Barbar and is the nicest Leila by far! It fits perfectly in the Hamra area and has a vintage feel. Moreover, the garden behind the main indoor restaurant is ideal for relaxing, enjoying some good food and smoking arguile if you want to.
Here are some pictures from the new Leila and the event yesterday. For more info, check out Kahwet Leila’s [website].
I was going to Jbeil’s old Souks yesterday when I noticed that Roadster Diner is opening a new branch there. It will be a couple of minutes away from the souks on the road that takes you down from the Jbeil roundabout.
Roadster is launching a pretty cool competition, where you have to upload a video on Instagram about your favorite RD Angus burger and get the change to win a 2 week trip to the US. The videos they are posting are pretty fun, even though that one above might get some people into trouble lol!
I will think of something fun and upload it.
Rules of the competition:
1- Upload a 15 sec instagram video about your favorite RD Angus burger with #RDBurger2USA and follow @roadsterdiner before September 20th.
2- The jury will choose 6 finalist videos by October 1st.
3- The public voting on our facebook page will start on October 1st and end on October 15th.
If you ever go to Akkar, make sure to try out the Tlamé bread. I don’t know if it’s popular elsewhere in Lebanon, but I’ve never had any in the South where I am from, nor in Beirut or Keserwan. The Tlamé is basically a dough baked in an oven made of clay. It comes out a bit thicker than the usual Man2oushe dough and tastier. You can get the Tlamé bread without any fillings or get Tlamé Manakish. Make sure to eat it while it’s still fresh and hot though as it hardens real quickly.
One of the oldest and most popular Tlamé ovens in Akkar is the one found in Oudeen. It’s on a small mountain road facing the stunning Oudeen valley and has been there for over 20 years. While waiting for your order to finish, I recommend you walk outside and enjoy the beautiful scenery.
I was wondering if there’s any arabic sweet called Ma2loubé to use for that picture and Kasr el Helou answered that Knefe is also called Ma2loubé so there you go
Speaking of Knefe, I was at Kasr el Helou in Tripoli on Saturday and had one. One of the best in Lebanon!
PS: I made sure no one was hurt in that accident before posting about it.

I was talking about new food places with Dana (Ivysays) and she mentioned that the famous Taouk place from Zahle Massaad has opened in Gemmayze and that it’s really good! Massaad’s taouk sandwich is rolled and put over the fire to make it crispy, with zaatar with olive oil smeared on top. The sandwich is filled with fries and a lot of garlic and served with hummus, pickles and coleslaw.
I’ve never been to Massaad before but I will surely visit now that it opened in Gemmayze.
