Have you ever wanted to win friends and influence people? You don’t have to read Daly Carnegie’s best selling self-help book of the same name to find out how to do it.

The fastest and easiest way is to head down to Mar Mikheal, walk into Bar Tartine bakery, and pick up the amazingly delicious ‘Baba in a Cup’ dessert they sell there. Step two: distribute to said friends. This will make you popular very quickly.

Baba in a Cup is a smaller version of rum baba, which is a small yeast cake, soaked in rum and sugary syrup, and topped with whipped cream and strawberries. It’s like your favorite comfort food went on an open-bar Caribbean getaway and returned to your dinner table. Ya3ni it’s really, really good.

The alcohol-infused pastry was invented by the French—who else?—but has been elevated by the Lebanese because ‘Baba in a Cup’ comes in an easy-to-carry cup and is the perfect surprise treat for anyone you want to impress.

Oh, and the best part of it all is that after 9 PM, all bread and pastries at Bar Tartine are half off for walk-in customers!

Baba in a Cup costs 5,000LL and with the discount is only 2,500LL—sorry I ruined your summer body plans.
