What sets this Bird Road spot apart from the rest of Miami’s Lebanese restaurants is their oven. You can spot the monstrous double-decker thing through a small service window just past a deli counter filled with kibbeh, butter cookies, and baklava. And you’ll want anything that gets quality time inside, like pillowy pita to dip into baba ganoush or the lahm bil ajeen flatbread with lamb and cheese. Part of the fun of coming here is interacting with the owner, who will help guide you through the menu. After you order a juicy lamb sandwich filled with peppers and a tangy sauce at the counter, take your food outside to the covered patio that the restaurant shares with three neighboring spots.
