Reading this article had made me want to try this Ramen soup. Sadly, I don’t think there is any restaurant or a kiosk that serves this type of Asian specialty.
To my excitement, Mike and I had an Asian restaurant to try. I know it’s been there for almost a year, but I didn’t get the chance to try it. Jaï. (give the man some love on his facebook page)
Jaï is located at the beginning of Hamra Street. It’s not practically a restaurant; it has only one table, as they work mainly for takeaways and home deliveries. What’s wonderful is sharing this only table with people you might meet there. This happened in front of us. The 2 groups of 4 left with a wide smile on their faces.
After a talk with the chef and owner about the type of business he’s running and about the food, its freshness, quality and flavors, he helped us choose some good items from the generous menu.
Hello! I’m so honored to be guest posting as part of the blog swap meet! Today I’ll be sharing with you one of my family’s favorite winter meals: hearty and warming Tuscan bean soup cooked in the slow cooker! It’s absolutely delicious and you’re going to love it!

I have mentioned I am not good at bread, right?
I haven’t experimented enough yet.
But I’m good at buying bread and using it.
This is like the easiest thing to make. Or is it just me who feels like cooking is easy?
On the day off when the country was celebrating Al Adha, my uncle woke me up early in the morning asking me if I’d like to go with him to the olive press located somewhere in the mountains over Jbeil – Byblos. Me, being a lazy boy, agreed to go only after loads of hesitation and self-questioning. The main reason behind getting out bed this early is because of one thought: I’m not the only one who has never ever visited an olive press.
No I haven’t been ignoring my blog. How can you ignore your baby?
It is just that I have started a new day job 3 weeks ago and it is draining me out. I’m getting back home with barely any energy left and no intent to go back behind the screen again. I work in graphic design and my new job is in books design. Back to the challenge, this is the 3rd recipe and 2 more to go.
Cooking on a budget requires a little more effort. You shall not buy ready-made and frozen food since it is so out of the daily budget, and health wise, home cooking is way better. And tastier.
