Souk el Tayeb, Beirut’s renowned fresh food market, has opened up a restaurant. Cleverly named Tawlet (Arabic for Tables), it’s a great place for lovers of spontaneity as monthly guest chefs switch up the menu with new dishes from their respective hometowns each day. Situated in Mar Mekhayel, a stylish industrial town known to attract artsy locals and tourists, Tawlet is an impeccable marriage of local products and an awesome, ostentatiously Lebanese environment.
