I spotted this shop in Achrafieh the other day, in Sursock street to be precise. It makes “saboun baladi”, big white chunks of soap that Lebanese usually use in villages. I’ve used them sometimes but i never really got used to them or liked them, but it is still cool to have a place that produces them still. Maybe i should pay him a visit ask him how he does them.
Did he have labneh?
Nopes, just soap.
What does Baladi mean? and I’ve seen a lot of photos of soap/soap makers..whats the deal? What makes it different?
Did he have banadoura?
He had banadoura-flavoured soap ..
interested mark ?
