Last week, I had the pleasure of going out to lunch with a colleague to a local favorite joint: Byblos. I’d been there before, so I knew what to expect: menus that folded out like newspapers, fast and courteous service, and fare that focused on standard middle-eastern staples. But this time, I wanted to try something more mainstream– and a house favorite, I was told: the Byblos Burger. As you can see, what it was, was an enormous double-patty burger with the works and a side of fries. I polished off the fries without a worry, but the burger I had to deconstruct carefully, and had only the one patty and the top bun! The rest I boxed for later!
My friend had the Mujaddera Wrap, a strictly vegetarian wrap made with red lentils, spinach and cheese (I’m forgetting what kind). I was told that it was delicious, and I confirmed it myself by taking a small bite.
See for yourself some pictures taken of this little hole-in-the-wall campus restaurant. If you’re ever in the neighborhood, you must pop in for lunch!
