I passed by ABC Debayeh late last week and while there I spotted the Nestle Toll House which Chahe had previously posted about. I decided to try it out and post my review of it. The place looked pretty cozy and the three times I passed by Toll House this past week the place was always empty so finding seating shouldn’t be a problem. They’re located in the basement next to the kids area and right below the perfume section between the escalators.
I went up to what looked like a fridge and noticed they had a few different kind of cookies along with an assortment of cakes like kit kat brownies, cookie cups etc.. I decided to go for the classic chocolate chip, each piece is for LL3,000 which is very reasonable. The cookies and all their goodies are located inside a temperature controlled unit the keeps everything nice and warm.
I took my first bite from the cookie expecting the worst since my dessert experience in Lebanon has always been disappointing unless it’s Nutella banana crepes. To my surprise the cookie was actually pretty good. By far the best cookie I’ve had in Lebanon and over all I would say it would be in my top 10 cookies list (#1 is Ben’s Cookies). The biggest issue I had with the cookies was the sweetness, they were just too sweet which is disappointing since it means you can’t have too many. I had two and a half cookies and overdosed on sugar. Other than that they were chewy and delicious, had them three times out of the five days I was in Lebanon for.
