A country’s cuisine reflects the culture and taste of its people. In that sense, Lebanese cuisine is one of the perfect examples of how its specialty meal preparations are inspired by nature, the area’s sunny landscapes, and the kindness and hospitality of its people. Authentic Lebanese cuisine is seen to carry a European influence and the ingredients used include a wide variety of fruits, vegetables, fresh fish, lamb, and seafood. Foodies interested in exploring the myriad tastes and flavors of Lebanese cuisine can try Zizo, a fast casual restaurant that offers authentic Lebanese delights with a healthy modern twist.
