113 Lebanon

This week PJ and Sora are exploring the delectable cuisine of Lebanon. An abundance of fruits, vegetables, and fresh fish are key ingredients in Lebanese cooking and there’s hardly a meal that doesn’t include generous doses of garlic and olive oil. The first stop for PJ is at the restaurant 93 Harbord to sample some Kibbeh, the national dish of Lebanon, while Sora heads straight for desert trying some Lebanese butter cookies and baklawa at Arz’s Fine Foods & Bakery. Sahteyn! (means bon appetit in Arabic).
