Manakeesh is part Lebanese lunch spot, part bakery, and whether you want to get some work done over a cup of coffee and a piece of baklava or are just catching up with a friend - it’s a quick and easy option with very good food. The flatbreads are perfect for sharing and are topped with everything from labneh and za’atar to lamb lahm bajeen. And no matter what you do, you shouldn’t leave without scanning the bakery cases. You can pretend the big box you leave with is to share with your coworkers, even though there’s about a 0% chance that actually happens.
