*This is Miami – post 8.
My Mom has been telling me for a while now about this Lebanese restaurant close to our house..so today we decided to go..
We pulled into the strip mall – coz you know, everything in the States is located in a strip mall – and I see a huge sign that reads “GREEK.”
I turned to my Mom and said, “Ummm are you sure we’re in the right place? It says Greek, not Lebanese!”
“Yes, yes I’m sure! I think it’s both,,I walked past it the other day and there is a sign on the window that says Lebanese Cuisine..” she said.
So, I hopped out of the car..and sure enough..she was right.
But unfortunately this is where this fascinating story ends – at least for now! You see, I peered through the glass to see if the restaurant was open, but save for a man moving about and fixing chairs, the restaurant was empty and completely dark. He came to the door probably wondering why I was taking pictures of his restaurant and told us that the restaurant is closed because “a few things need to be fixed.”
On the way back home, my Mom told me that they had they had been closed all of last month in observance of Ramadan.
So folks..the mystery of whether the restaurant is Greek or Lebanese remains. I guess I’ll try back again before I leave!
