So, even if you had a bad experience of when you first tasted Lebanese food, there’s nothing wrong with trying to expose yourself to another opportunity to like the food. Your palette may have changed since the last time you tasted the food, or the cooking of the meal or the ingredients in the dish wasn’t to your liking. And that is why one of the best ways to enjoy Lebanese food is to eat it with an open mind or try again with an open heart.
Some Lebanese cuisines are served raw but have good seasoning like the Kibbeh Nayeh or the fresh ground lamb tenderloin mixed with burghul or wheat cereal and then seasoned with special herb spices. Bastorma is another dish that may look like it is served raw but it’s actually delicious thin slices of hot seasoned smoked beef best paired with vegetables. And for those who aren’t fond of vegetables outside of salads, try the Maghmour, a mouthwatering ragout Lebanese style soup made from eggplant, chickpeas, parsley, tomato, onion, garlic, and a mint leaf to garnish.
