Our 2019 Trend Destination Hotlist.
Beirut, Lebanon – Middle Eastern Food is becoming mainstream in the West, as its health benefits (and general tastiness) are heralded everywhere from Milwaukee to Munich. In particular, Beirut – known for its lively fashion, clubs, nightlife and entertainment – is rising in popularity as a foodie mecca. Widening our palates in 2019, we’ll be heading to the Beirut Food Festival in September to try traditional tabbouleh, mezze, pomegranate molasses and kibbeh nayeh, the Lebanese speciality of spiced, finely ground meat. Well worth the trip! Lucy Revill [Photo: alixanaeuphoria/Flickr]
