Great Lebanese in Scranton... YES, SCRANTON
Worth the slight detour if driving from NY/NJ to Ithaca or Binghamton for this home-cooked type meal, but not if you are in a hurry.This is a slow food type of place. Enjoyed excellent hummus with thin pita, refreshing tabouleh, crispy and dense yet not heavy falafels, and perfectly flavored and moist lamb kebabs. This meal was as good as any and better than many Lebanese meal I've had in the Middle East. And don't miss the baklava - it's also made there with hand chopped nuts and a light hand of honey that is typical of true Lebanese baklava rather than most of what is sold in the USA in Greek and other diners, etc.
If you plan to go, go before july 3 or wait until after July 23 as this family-run restaurant's family is off on vacation for next 3 weeks!
