‘We made the Fatah, Tahini, Molokhia and much more!’ A statement said by almost every country in the Middle East. Well, we can’t help ourselves! With so much tasty and literally mind-blowing dishes, who doesn’t want to take credit for them? Nevertheless, let’s put the records straight and give the credit where it’s due.
- Kebab and Kofta – Iran
- Baba Ganough – Syria and Lebanon
- Molokhiya – Egypt
- Foul – Egypt, Syria
- Stuffed Grape Leaves – Turkey
- Hummus – Egypt?
There isn’t a clear winner here, but records show that its origins may go back to Egypt. Moreover, it exists, that’s all that matters.
- Shwarma – Turkey
Now that we got cleared off, what’re you having for lunch?
