NoGarlicNoOnions at Tawlet: A Venture Where Love for Food and Lebanon Unite

tawlet-nogarlicnoonions-lunch202015-01-05-10-56-44

With the collaboration of Tawlet’s main man, Kamal Mouzawak, I was able to experience something many only dream of in Lebanon. An early Christmas I call it, when Kamal generously gathered around 15 women to come cook and share their experience and culture around one big table. It was peaceful – cooking was the only language and Lebanon was the only cause. How often does this happen… or how often would you get to experience this peaceful feeling in Lebanon…

In this modern life, Most of us rarely have time to pick fresh fruits, vegetables or to dine in any a
restaurant that provides good taste and healthy food at the same time. Souk El Tayeb started their
initiative to change that concept to all Lebanese beauties.

[…] Finally, we entered the kitchen. I was seriously impressed with the setup that was professionally
done, spacious, clean and well laid out.  No messing around here. The kitchen was created in
partnership with Souk El Tayeb, specifically for this class, by interior design students, from both
Bab El Tabbenah and Jabal Mehson, with the complete support of Ruwwad through programs
and grants.

Beirut’s 10 Best Cultural Restaurants: Dining in Lebanon

Tawlet is an amazing place with a great concept behind it. A branch of Souk el Tayeb, a market where small-scale
farmers from every region of Lebanon come together to sell their produce, Tawlet offers typical Lebanese food made
with fresh ingredients brought by the farmers themselves, served as a buffet. But in addition to the high-quality food,
Tawlet’s most characteristic feature is that every day, a different guest chef from a different village in Lebanon cooks
a lunch based on the culinary delicacies of his or her area, making Tawlet the venue to sample Lebanese cuisine in all
its regional variations. At Tawlet, food identifies with culture – and for those who really want to get in touch with
Lebanon’s culinary culture, the restaurant also offers cooking classes.

Lebanese restauranteur Kamal Mouzawak is something of a local hero. Not only is he
single-handedly reshaping the Beirut food scene with is ever-evolving experimental farmers’
market project Souk El Tayeb, but his string of Tawlet restaurants that stem from it (the fourth of
which opened in Bkassine, 70km south of the capital, last month) aim to reconcile this often
divided nation and support the huge influx of Syrian refugees that have poured into the country
as a result of the neighbouring civil war.
