    No! Never been there. I didnt visit Rio in recent years! Personaly , for vacation I prefer the beachs from nort-east of Brazil. But these days is more cheap to visit Miami then to go to north-east Brazil. Can you believe it?

    I can believe it. The dollar is depressed. And Recife is a hotspot.

    Have you ever tried it? I know it might look gross, and the concept of eating semi raw beef is kinda gross, but really its the best. Just close your eyes and put it in your mouth... covered in olive oil between a hot pita.
    Cooked is nothing but lamb, pine nuts and spice....but raw..and done to perfection is genius...with arak...what is not to like, perhaps one of the best dishes in the world and the hardest to find when done to perfection.

    You know there is a place in Montreal that sells cooked Kibbe that's made of fish and also chicken, though I've tried neither!

    But this thread is making me hungry... it's been a while since i've ate real Lebanese food!

    Yeap, I've been there a couple times as I use to live fairly close.

    They rated it the best shawarma in Montreal, though I feel they won because of their location downtown and in between the nightclubs/students.

    Here is a grocery store chain in Montreal that specializes in Lebanese & Middleeastern.

    http://montreal.ctv.ca/servlet/an/lo...b=MontrealHome

    They now have 5 huge locations and were bought out recently by the biggest grocery retailer in Canada.

    They serve all sorts of kibbe: beef, lamb, fish and chicken.

    You would be in paradise, Curious American. Video on the right side.

    This chain:
    http://www.amirrestaurant.com/

    Is probably similar to Habibs in Brazil, it's in Canada and has like 50 locations or so last I checked. I am not a big fan of it.

    I am just beginning to realize how influential the Lebanese are in Montreal.

    Check out this thread I started Lebanese Montreal

    When I first saw you on this board, I could NOT understand why a Lebanese such as you would
    like Montreal.

    But the more I checked, the more I found out how well established the Lebanese are in Montreal.
    30% of Canada's Lebanese. Lots of restaurants from small mom and pop joints to high end
    world class restaurants to famous halal bakery.

    Now, I see why you are homesick for Montreal.

    I find this fascinating beyond measure. Sometimes subcultures are more interesting than the general culture.

    In America, our general culture is so strong that most subcultures barely thrive.

    But what I have yet to figure out is ... where is the maple syrup added in?
