Eating and drinking our way around Beirut

Voila! Here is the final post of my Beirut photo diary, with a delicious focus on two of our favourite finds in the city. First up is Al Falamanki in Sodecco, which was right around the corner from our apartment, and was this wonderful outdoor restaurant, serving some of the best Lebanese food I've ever tasted. The tabbouleh was honestly to die for, how can I go back to Spinneys' own now?

Secondly: February 30. After one afternoon spent wandering around Hamra, we popped into this extremely eccentric bar that I can't imagine ever getting tired of visiting. Whilst the Moscow Mules (my drink throughout the trip) weren't quite as tasty as in Julep's on Uruguay Street, Downtown Beirut, the uniqueness of Feb 30 entirely made up for it. Tables on ceilings, barber's seats and motorbikes as chairs, swings, drinks in jars, stools with mannequin legs... it was a haven of weirdness but struck totally the right balance between kitch, shabby and cool.

And there you have it - a collection of my favourite photos from what was a truly fabulous holiday and one that I intend on repeating before too long! In the meantime, can anyone recommend a good Moscow Mule in Dubai, preferably served in a silver tumbler?
