Honestly, we don’t know if we can pick just ONE item so we kinda backed ourselves into a corner here… BUT, you guys came in super strong with your answers, so THANK YOU.
Here’s how it went down in the DMs (and comments):
Is tikka just forever gonna top alllll other local food out here?
This one was fighting with tikka for first place tbh.
And this one was definitely fighting with shawarma for, well, obvious reasons.
All these answers were like “machboooooooos forever.”
Or khubiz khabaz in general, this one is THE TOP for us.
King Karak over everything for this one, right?
Old is gold, people.
Do we all specifically also have Safi with rice for Friday lunch?
Is there anything better than fresh, warm halwa? A reader made sure to specify the green halwa, we felt this should be mentioned…
Our national cuisine – obviously made the list!
A bunch of honorable mentions that just have to be on here are balaleet, mandi, vimto, harees, (lu)gaimat, hummus, pacha, Jan Burger, roosi aaaand rahash!
