Located in a renovated area of the City, this little market is proposing high end organic products, quality, authentic. Bought cheeses for cocktails, biscuits, soap, zaatar... Nice vegetables, street food. Like Marché des Enfants Rouges in Paris or Borough in London.

I have been to different restaurants in Beirut but Tawlet was definitely the best so far. Every lunch a different cook with different plates. Very delicious. They explain every single plate how it is made in fluent English. Do not miss this one.

Description
This is a wonderful little restaurant ideal fro brunch or a wonderfully varied lunch. Souk el Tayeb started as a farmers market in 2004, and now offers a range of delicious regional Lebanese dishes and desserts, as well as preserves, jams and sweets that can be bought in the restaurant. The concept is to offer fresh, organic food, with dishes changing weekly, so that one can savour different dishes from around Lebanon. Brunch is offered on Saturday, and during the week a wonderful lunch buffet is offered at a set price, including main courses, appetizers and salads, as well as desserts.The food is nothing short of delicious and the service impeccable and very friendly. The space is light and laid back, with a mixed crowd of lunching ladies, young professionals and some business men, all seamlessly blending in together. There is also a little outside space with a couple of tables.
