The Lebanese have Knafeh for Breakfast

The Jordanians have always showed their surprise from two things the Lebanese people eat: Knafeh sandwich, if we can call it so, and raw meat (Kebbeh Nayyeh).

They can hardly believe that ,here in Lebanon, we have Knafeh for breakfast or even for dinner as a main meal and not as a dessert, after the Knafeh is put in a special peice of bread, we call it Ka3ket Knafeh.

Those who visited Lebanon must have seen this, but mostly didn't like the idea and didn't think of trying it. And those who heard about it find it strange and almost unbelievable.

I haven't eaten Knafeh since maybe a year, I usually don't like to eat sweets in the morning, but today, I passed by the sweets shop and had one.

Ka3ket Knafeh

after the first two bites


You have to try it, believe me.

Ola said...

lol I don't think I would eat that, but I love knafeh and I love bread so I think they might taste okay :D But I don't mind knafeh as a breakfast, I did it more than once :D without bread!

wedad said...

Dar by the way its a very delecious sandwish, i ate it when i was in lebanon 2 years ago :)

Nana said...

SimSim and Dar, come on guys mish la darajet el ewwwww ya3ny!
it's food w ma beseer ne7ky 3aleeh ewww :)
simply, you're not used to eat this kind of food. I found sanyorah and labneh a very strange mixture when put in a sandwich, I mean what the heck? labneh and sanyorah together?!! (p.s. sanyorah is a kind of mortadella that is not found in Lebanon and the lebanese have never heard of it).

I do not eat that, but i won't feel disgusted and go ewww for sure.

I also found eating falafel for breakfast a very strange habit. We eat falafel for lunch here.

Olalol, yeah, I remember u saying something about knafeh eno u like it kteer w hek :D
you gotta try it w ma ra7 tendamy, believe me.

Wedad, so u tried it?
yes, it's desmeh, that's why i said I haven't eaten it since like a year or so, but it is YUMMY!!
and by the way, it's a special kind of break or Ka3ek, we call it ka3ket knafeh as I said and not a sandwich :D

7ala thank you :)
knafeh b khobez? hmm, well, could be, but as I previously said, it's a special kind of bread made especially for knafeh, and not ordinary bread.

I bet you'll change ur minds when u try it (H) :p
