I have a new craving and I’m off to the Little Lebanon for lunch! Last week when we visited this awesome eatery, we noticed a fresh supply of Fatayers on these wooden racks. Fatayers are triangular pastries that contain tasty stuffing such as chicken, beef, potato and donair meat. When you arrive late, most of the fatayers are bagged and stored in the fridge. They’re ok when heated but they’re not as good as when they are fresh out of the oven.
For fatayer lovers, they are cooked everyday at 10am. I would urge you to go there early to pick up a dozen or two. I recommend the chicken because they’re the best tasting treat. The spinach ones aren’t that good but for vegetarians, they do contain a nice healthy portion of spinach in them.
My wife loves packing them for lunch. She takes three to four of them to work, heat them up in the microwave and devours them. I could eat half a dozen easy but I rather combine it with a shwarma, meat pie or a donair for lunch.
Next time you’re in the neighbourhood (south of Westbrook Mall), drop in, say hello, have a baklava and some fatayers.
