with Lebanese food, a meal is not complete without coffee

Lebanese Food:- Baking bread at the Furn (bakery)

Lebanese Bread starts as flat round pieces of dough

The dough is typically flattened out by a machine

Another type of Lebanese bread is marqooq, which is much thinner than the regular Lebanses bread

For marqooq bread, the baker flips the "pillow" with the dough onto the hot saj (an inverted wok-like piece of hot metal)
The bread cooks very fast

Here they are baking various types of items: manakeesh, spinach pies, etc.

It definitely is a very strong coffee

When all else fails, Lebanese can go to Burger King (notice the prices in Lebanese Lira)

Or there's always McDonald's
