BEIRUT FOOD & DRINK: ALKANTARA BAKERY FINALE

I spent my last morning in Alkantara Bakery where I had what has essentially been dubbed “The Jackie,” an egg, cheese, tomato, and onion breakfast mannouche all rolled up into an easy-to-hold (and devour) sandwich. So good! I will miss this place so much. Image

Below: “The Jackie” laid out flat and THEN rolled up!

MEMORIES OF LEBANON

“Pope John Paul II once said as well, “Lebanon is a message more than it is a country.” Now this diversity has turned into fragmentation and the richness into poverty, awaiting a miraculous remedy.”

BEIRUT FOOD & DRINK: ALKANTARA BAKERY, PT. 2

My morning ritual: wake up, get dressed, walk over to Alkantara to see two of my favorite people who welcome me with smiles. They give me a ‘big’ coffee and feed me delicious mannouche. It is SO fresh. Literally, right out of the oven. When I think of Beirut, I’ll think of Alkantara and the friendships I’ve made.
