Our latest family outing took us 40 minutes drive from Beirut, towards Zaarour, a ski resort at 1300m level. There we found a little cabin , called Koukh al Sabaya, which literally means girls’ cabin. A Must see and visit for people who want to share a good moment in a very funky “restaurant”, where the girls (ranging from age 17 to 50) are serving you boiling tea in a huge metal pot, and excellent manousheh (Lebanese pizza) made of dark flour, and filled with cheese, ham, thyme or Nutella!
The cabin is the sort of place that you must see to understand its charm; the decor is a melting pot of trompe-oeuil paintings of green fields with charming little kids, popcorn trees, sculpted tables made of the finest trees and shaped into a giant peacock! Not two chairs or tables are alike, and the place has its regular customers winter as in summer!
Definitely a place to re-visit!
