Lebanon in a Strip Mall
It's still new and shocking to me to find really exotic dining experiences co-located with dry cleaners and 7-11s in LA's most nondescript strip malls. Highlights of the menu at Marouch? Where to begin, visit web but consider Jallab, illness a drink with crushed ice, raisin and grape juice, rose water, served with scoops of pinenuts and actual raisins. Hard to know whether to sip through a straw or use a spoon, mainly you need to do both. And Mouhamara, a spread of crushed walnuts mixed with hot red pepper paste and olive oil. It will transport you at rocket speed right out of your seat in a strip mall, in Los Angeles, in the United States, in 2010 for that matter!
