There’s something you should know about Geneva: foreigners make up 40% of its resident population. That’s 200,000 people out of a total 500,000. It’s no wonder then that we have food from all over the world – and also might explain why there is either a pizzeria or a kebab shop (or both) on literally every corner. (No joke, Switzerland sells 600 TONNES of kebab per month. Per MONTH!)
While kebab (whether of Turkish, Lebanese or other Middle Eastern descent) has been Geneva’s go-to for cheap hearty meals on the go, we finally have a competitor: the Lebanese la man’oushe SajEat. Don’t be fooled by the desolate-looking hole in the wall, this is some of the most authentic food, made with noticeably fresh ingredients.
The flatbreads are made to order, coming straight out of the oven before your eyes, and turn out crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside, just as they should be. Try the basic with a zaatar spread, take it up a notch by adding labne, or melted jebneh cheese, OR, make the best decision of the day and get the sojouk with minced lamb meat and kaskaval cheese. After a couple bites you’ll be saying “keba-what”?
