Finally, a vegetarian friendly meal that doesn't make me feel like a rabbit.

I'll admit I'm a little jelly of Nat Mayer's Cafe Hamra feast, combining two favorite Lebanese food items into one. Halloum, fried to perfection, sits loftily atop a fattouch orgy, and all is lightly sprinkled with just the perfect amount of crunchy fried bread. Akkh, the pangs of hunger.

It's like Lebanon in a meal—which is perfect, considering Mayer (no, not John) was on a #middleeast #vacation.

Sahtein dude, and welcome to Lebanon.
