Leil Nhar means Night and Day and the place is true to its name as it is open 24hrs/7days a week. Originally it mainly served as an early breakfast spot for partying people returning home from a night club. Nowadays you can even have lunch or dinner at Leil Nhar. After having kids, we don’t party as much as before but nothing feels better than a platter of lebneh with vegetables and manoushe after dancing all night and having some drinks.
Manoushe is a typical Lebanese breakfast, a thin pizza-style dough with zaatar (a mix of thyme, sesame and some spices) or cheese on top baked in the oven. It can be eaten open like a pizza or rolled into a sandwich filled with your preferred vegetables — usually tomatoes, cucumber, mint leaves, olives and onion.
These days we mainly use their delivery service or pass by in the middle of the day for a cup of coffee and a snack. For water pipe lovers, there is a terrace where they can enjoy one.
The prices vary from 2000LBP for a zaatar manoushe, but they offer a full range of foods — salads, chicken, steaks, burgers, pasta or pizza, whatever you feel like eating. And after your meal, you can enjoy a cup of coffee with a nice dessert.
