Soubhieh Outing

You read about Soubhieh two days ago. A soubhieh can happen at a home or one can go out for one, as my dad and I did today.

Our soubhieh started at a sweets store for Kneffé.

Kneffé is a mix of white cheeses cooked and covered with a semolina top.

It is then soaked with Lebanese syrup and eaten with Kaaek.

(both items pictured below)

After such a sweet indulgence it was time for coffee, so off we moved to La Maison du Café

A fancy coffee house serving Lebanon's best quality coffee - Najjar Coffee

We ordered the Arabic coffee. I expected to see a cup put on the table. However, and in the traditional style of old time coffee houses, a tray with a freshly made coffee along with a glass of water (a must when you serve coffee) and a piece of turkish delight.

Now all we needed was a backgammon board and the soubhieh would be complete.

What a delicious cup of coffee. There is no way I can replicate such a strong, fresh, authentic cup of coffee at home; so please don't ask.
