Day 4 (June 26) – Dinner

Dinner Tuesday was amazing. We ate traditional Lebanese food outside under the sky in Beirut at Al Falamanki. It was a really great space, with tables situated under trees and vines. Everyone who had wanted to smoke shisha was able to–double apple all around. The food was so very good–starting again with mezze, and followed by kibbe (fried balls of ground spiced beef) and kebabs. Dessert was chilled fruits–cherries, apricots, etc.–in a bowl of ice.

This was one of the best dinners we’ve had, both for the food and the camaraderie. Al Falamanki has a small museum on site of old hats, guns, and other cultural items.
