Hussein of Lebanon Tours brought us to this unpretentious but neat and clean roadside restaurant on our return from seeing the ancient city of Baalbeck. We were seated at our own table in an covered but open-air dining area patronized entirely by local families. Although the staff did not speak English, we had no trouble communicating our wishes, and we were quickly served a typical Lebanese meal of generous quantity and extraordinary quality. The bread was the best I tasted in Lebanon, a country of excellent bakers, the vegetables had clearly come straight from a local farm, and the barbecued chicken and lamb was as tender as I have tasted anywhere. The cost for three of us was 31,000 Lebanese pounds--or $20. In the United States one would happily pay three times as much for such a meal. Look for the restaurant on the right side of the road about ten minutes after departing the old city on the highway back to Beirut.
