In Warsaw, just opposite Tel Aviv (check out the Tel Aviv article), we now have Beirut. The first one had its big opening almost three years ago and still attracts many people every day. The latter opened one year after and till this day have fierce fans.
At Beirut they decided to specialize in hummus – and truly their hummus is the best! You can enjoy it plain, or with cumin and rocket salad, or – not for vegetarians – with liver. Sometimes around noon they run out of hummus (just like in real hummus places that I visited in Israel) – but they quickly try to prepare new portions.
If you aren’t a hummus fan go for their halumi burger. Melting cheese with mild spicy sauce!
Bejrut’s setting is a little bit apocalyptic, with sand bags placed just like in a military outpost (though don’t be scared the place has really been well designed – it’s simple, but you can see great care for the smallest detail).
Beirut doesn’t only focus on hummus – they also promote good music. Here you can hear classic Arabic drums, Persian pop, Lebanese funk, and many more.
And just so you know – the only battle that may happen between Tel Aviv and Beirut is the hummus battle – but if that’s the case – we all are going to enjoy it!
PS. Only one step separates Beirut from Kraken – tehy have the same owner who decide to conect them. Changing worlds was never so easy.
