    Default Lebanese food in Brazil


    Lebanese Kibbeh is almost a national dish in Brazil.

    Brazil has about 10 Million Lebanese. Started immigrating to Brazil over 100 years ago.

    That is pretty interesting to know kibbe is a common street food in Rio! I have seen it around Mexico at some non-Lebanese restaurants, which have sometimes a small Lebanese food section just like some in Canada have Italian or Greek sections. I think most people do not know how to make good kibbe and it's rare to find good kibbe. Real kibbe has to be fresh, not prefrozen and deep fried like many places do. Its also a lot of work to make kibbe.

    I prefer kibbe nayye with some mint, olive oil, pita, onion, tastes a lot better but its not too good for you. Add to it tabbouleh and maybe a glass of Chateau Ksara rouge... eat it once every few months or so and I don't think it will kill you.

    Damn you made me hungry, I want some Lebanese food. Real Lebanese food.

    Very popular in Brazil, but I doubt HABIB'S is fresh

    This is real kibbe, and you cant get this at Habibs!

    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.

    Raw beef?! I can barely tolerate cooked beef.

    Yeah it's beef tartar. I don't eat raw meat either but if I am at my favorite fine dining Lebnaese restaurant I will make an exception.

    They taste very similar but kibbe nayye has a special touch above. Since you are in New York City, I think you should give it a go and come back to give everyone a review on it.

    I would love to go to a Lebanese Restaurant, but no one wants to go with me.

    I was thinking the Monmouth County area.

    But, seriously, my stomach does not handle even cooked beef too well. I prefer chicken.
