Food is always a highlight of Ramadan, we grocery shop early for this month, and prepare for extravagant gatherings and long dinning tables of everything that is mouthwatering.
We usually don’t like to dine out for that sole reason, because why give up on a good fulfilling homemade meal for a pricey one? But when the restaurant choices are almost as good as your homemade one, then the obvious choice would be to dine out for a change.
And because we understand the struggle, we gathered the following top notch restaurants for a delicious night out!
The open buffet from Fairouz Garden offers various dishes from western Lebanese cuisine. They surely cater for all the different tastes, and their prices are quite reasonable.
The buffet consists of appetizers, salads, main dishes, soups, desserts and hot drinks.
There is an outdoor seating, and partitions as well.
