Everytime I head to the Bekaa, I have to pass by Hedwan and have a Labneh sandwich or as the Zahle people call it, “Labaneh” sandwich. I used to find it weird at first but it does make sense when you think about it.
You have Laban and out of it you get Labaneh. I don’t know if it’s possible to trace back the word and see which is the correct term, but I will stick to Labne for now.
We say labaneh. My family comes from Bethlehem. 🙂
Labneh sounds nicer. Labaneh t2ili.
I usually go with labneh, my grandma from bekaa says labaneh so both work in our family :p
