It May be Foul, But it Sure Is Tasty


Posted on September 16


I’ve been a fan of Maalouf’s Taste of Lebanon for years. This friendly, family-owned restaurant plates up consistently flavorful, very fresh Middle Eastern fare. One of my favorite menu items is the “foul muddamas,” a lovely, chunky fava bean spread embellished with lavish amounts of garlic and brightened with fresh lemon juice. Served warm, this luscious appetizer is accompanied by sliced onions and triangles of just-baked pita bread – a terrific way to begin a Lebanese feast. Tip: When you do visit Maalouf’s, make sure to save room for an order of the restaurant’s flaky, perfumey (and crafted-on-the-premises) baklava – the last time I visited, I was lucky enough to get a few pieces that had just come out of the oven.

Guests were treated to food and drink from nearly 100 local eateries and bars. Other vendors auctioned off wares and services ranging from hand-woven free trade baskets to modern art work and vintage photographs.
