What comes to mind when you think of Middle Eastern food? Hommus, baba ghanouj, mahammara,olives,mutabal, fattoush, kibbeh,borak- it's all delicious. Some of the restaurants were a bit disgusted with us because after our fill of wonderful savoury pastries and dips and salads there simply wasn't room for another thing- or the main course for that matter.
Then there is the spice souq- wonderful smells and colours, fresh fruit and vegetables( all seasonal - everything is grown in Syria)
The "mobile" juicing stands, loaded with strawberries at this time of year and with the remaining pomegranates.
