Stopped by for lunch today and had a delicious lamb sandwich, shared a cheese pie and a spinach pie which were also scrumptious. The baklava was among the best I have ever had! This is a small family run place, with great service, very reasonable prices and a small, covered seating area outside. Will be returning to try the other items on the menu!

Ok so a fellow foodie friend of mine said there was this new Lebanese place in the neighborhood. Trusting him we went for lunch. This is a unique place and a must visit in Miami specially for locals. Its a not sexy but the food is amazing and authentic. Order the lamb burrito, and try everything on the menu. I have uploaded the things we ate. The owner is there serving and it shows he cares. Must go!!

This little place is a corner gem buried in Cubanville.

I would say 80% of what they sell is homemade.
Family owned and Ali the owner is the chef and director.
It's fairly price- it's fast and it's delicious!
Portions are small.

Parking is limited and shared with a Cuban open air restaurant that features different foods

We tried:
Fatayer: mini pie filled with spinach, onion an seasoning. It's tangy and delicious - they are a tiny delicious start as is the
Farayer Bil Jibneh: mini cheese pie- tiny as well but utterly delicious. Not to mention the dough on these two little pies . They make great starters.
Kibbe: are crusty and shaped differently but oh so good served with a sauce similar to Tahini.
Hummus: awesome goodness. Soft and creamy- served with pickled green peppers and fresh tomatoes and a warm puffed up pita.
A must have!
Lamb sandwich: just a perfect harmony of sliced lamb with a dash of sauce. A signature sandwich
Baklava - a little perfumey for my taste but still a little nice portion of sweetness

Overall, go now before they become a franchise and if all gets ruined.
