Any or every piece of Lebanese food you have eaten in your country, it’s hands down way better in Lebanon where it’s originally from. The amazing Middle Eastern flavors in your food really spice up the dish.

One of the famous one is Edde Sands, Madame Bleu and Lazy B that has its own spas, restaurants, a number of pools and daybeds. These places offer an amazing poolside with some deliciously mouthwatering food that you can enjoy as you bathe in the sun and let your tan set in.

Since Beirut has its feet dipped into a cultural and historical diversity it would be a foolish thing to believe that Beirut’s art is somehow lagging behind.
