The entry was filled with a variety of the Lebanese nougat sweets. As we went further inside there were whole spices available, a little further the display changed to a variety of nuts & even further inside was the roasted coffee section.
The nuts were around 70-90LE per kg & came in many flavored options.
The server there - Mahmood - was extremely polite & helpful. He even offerred us a complimentary coffee of our choice. I had tried Arabic coffee a couple of days agao. (an extremely mild decoction that is had sugarless with small bites of dates taken in between) so I decided to try the Turkish coffee. Big mistake. It was too strong for me since I am definitely not a "black coffee" person. Turkish coffee is a very strong decoction of coffee. Much much much stronger than an espresso. So I had to discreetly hide the almost untouched cup of coffee.
We picked up a half kg of assorted nuts convincing ourselves that we had avoided the less healthier option - SWEETS. Having rationalised our purchase, we headed on as happy as can be.
Had a lovely dinner at Andrea later this evening. Read my Review Here
