Every time I go to Beirut, I have this usual visit to Cafe Em Nazih. The atmosphere is excellent and the food is like my mom's cooking. I love Kibbeh bi Laban which is super heavenly. I simply enjoy everything there.

we entered by chance following a small group of people and the smell that came from the bottom of the stairs. the place is lovely, good music and a lot of lebanese people. the "internal" table is with service, the external table is "self services".
