Late-night snack

After Thursday's outing to the Lebanese Film Festival, I decided to walk home. It's an uphill, 15-minute walk, but so worth it in the end when I realised that at the top of the hill, on Sassine Square, the saj fires were burning and mne'eesh were being made. I finally got the chance to taste a delicious (yip, I may have found the best saj in town!) manouche made in my area. Generous dollops of perfectly blended zaatar on super-tasty dough! Pity the ladies making them are from the village of Aley and only come to the square three nights a week... I'll be back!
