Lebanese Food In Mexico
Wandering Back Streets of Cozumel
But, it smelled so darn good!
We Peeked In
The bright yellow space was empty, except for a young man and his cell phone at one table. The floor was still damp from a recent mopping and the owner was out on the patio, with a hose. He smiled and waved.
In We Go
The owner greeted us and invited us in. We chose one of the 3 tables and Don ordered a pineapple drink, while we checked over the menu.
The curious drink was green, with a hint of cucumber and a tiny bit of crunch.
While we waited on our food, we took in the decor. There was a Lebanese flag on one wall and a Turkish flag on the other. There was a bookcase, with mostly books in English.
business, Luis and his wife opened up this restaurant so he could cook and share the foods he loved.
Don ordered the Arabian Tacos, which Luis recommended. The chicken and pork were flavored with delicious Mediterranean spices. The pita bread was soft and warm. Luis explained how to use the 4 sauce options, but we got a little confused.
I went for the falafal plate, which came with 5 yummy, fried treats, hummus, salad and a yogurt based sauce. I ate every bit, except the salad. After a week of no salad, I was craving those greens. But I've learned to keep it safe... so I can enjoy my stay.

The Dining Blog
This is a blog about Dining Adventures. Sometimes, I talk about food. Below, you can read how this started.
On July 4th 2011, I set a goal to try 50 culturally diverse restaurants in one year! (I knew that was possible, living in the Houston area) I spent the year pulling in friends and family to join me, on some unusual dining adventures. I met some curious people, tried some scary foods and explored places and cultures I never would have otherwise. Even though I met my goal, I learned too much to end my adventures in dining. I have continued blogging about memorable dining adventures of all kinds, near and far... and all the discoveries and funny things I've learned along the way!
Locations and types of dining adventures, are listed further down.
