The claim of authenticity is not an easy one to make, especially when it comes to the complexity of the Lebanese flavour. That is why it made our hearts flutter inside when Layal's claim to authenticity is backed by a staff of Lebanese chefs that are armed with essentials like debs el roman, olive oil and their family’s cooking recipes. 

Layal is the newest  Lebanese restaurant you need to put on your radar, Located in Downtown Katameya, their menu consists of all dem delicious treats that Beirut has to offer -- from the manoucheh to the kebbeh shawarma and all that’s in between!

They also serve a mean Lebanese breakfast; we’re talking black beans, mesabaha and makanek, hennys.
