Lunch at Zahr El Laymoun

Friday begins the weekend around here and I feel like this day just went by so fast. That always happens when the day is filled with activities. I got my hair cut and colored this morning which is always a treat. And then we met friends for lunch.

This restaurant is found in a fairly new mall that not a lot of people go to so it is nice and quiet. Our youngest was there at a bowling party with friends so it made sense to have lunch there.

Lebanese food can be found anywhere. But I like the quaint and charming look of this restaurant.

Plus the food is not just your typical Lebanese fare. It is somewhat on the gourmet side with portions that are just right. I love the bucket turned light shade. Even little silver buckets are used to put your bill in.

I actually arrived late from my hair appointment so everyone had finished eating. But I ordered a Mediterranean salad and lemon with mint to drink which was delicious.

I hope you had a lovely day in your corner of the world. Friendship blessings, Tammy

Looks like a fun day and I like quaint, charming restaurants like that. :)

This evening begins our busy weekend. Beautiful, sunny weather continues here, as it's been for most of September and October. We've really been blessed with the good weather this year. Tonight it's the last football game/marching band and tomorrow, the last band competition. Sunday, we're off to Parke County Indiana for the last day of the Covered Bridge festival.

Continued wonderful weekend blessings to you,
Linda

What a lovely restaurant with what seems to be a nice, homely atmosphere with a vintage flair. Can't wait to see a pic of your new 'do'. I coloured mine this morning, nothing different, just the usual. :)

A busy day for sure from the sounds of the post. The restaurant you went to is TOO unique. I have never seen a restaurant decorated with pails hanging from the ceiling. It looks very simple in decor, which is unusual for restaurants in Kuwait.
Lemon with mint is huge here too. I am sure it was refreshing with all the running around you were doing.
Hope you are loving the new do...

Love ya,
Renee
