Restaurante Libanês Beyrouth

A M. tem ascendência Arménia mas nasceu no Líbano, fala as 2 línguas, lê e escreve árabe.
Fomos finalmente experimentar um dos restaurantes Libaneses, o Beyrouth.
Ela tratou dos pedidos com o sr e achei engraçado ele apontar no papel, escrevendo do lado direito para o esquerdo, em árabe, pareciam ondulados simples e era impossível entender qualquer linha ou palavra.
