Sample local favourites

Beirut is an ideal destination for food lovers. There are eateries for all occasions, from street food stalls and hole-in-the-wall takeaways through to fine dining establishments.

Don’t miss traditional specialities such as kibbeh – often served in a lemon sauce in Beirut – tabbouleh, falafel, hummus and fatteh. Man’oushe, flat round bread with a cheese or za’atar topping, is another staple. Head for Zaitunay Bay for upscale dining, or to Hamra for amazing street food.

Shopping and more

Right at the heart of the city sits Beirut Souks. A modern take on the traditional Middle Eastern marketplace, Beirut’s shopping sprawl is a popular attraction.

In place of the old-fashioned one-off shops, this souk is closer to a modern mall and home to designer brands as well as local stores. Afterwards, rest up and enjoy the many dining and entertainment options available, including a state-of-the-art cinema.

Stroll along Rue Hamra, where you’ll eventually reach the Blue Mosque and St. George Cathedral in lively Martyrs’ Square. Afterwards, stop for coffee and watch the world go by on Place de l’Etoile. When the seaside beckons, head to the breezy Corniche or classy Zaitunay Bay.
