Three summers ago, i stopped by @furnbeaino
in jounieh for the very first time. i’d heard and seen enough on social media to entice me to pass by the small bakery nestled along the inner highway of sarba. there, wissam beaino, who along with younger brother samer assist their father toni in running the operation, greeted me with an infectious smile and a spiced meat pie tens of seconds later.
i would never have guessed that a single spiced meat pie, better known to locals as la7m baajin, would be the start of a solid friendship steeped in the mutual love of good food.
furn beaino has been serving hungry passersby for over 40 years, earning a blemish-free reputation as arguably the best lahm baajin house in the country. one solitary bite out of that crisp dough, spread meticulously with fresh finely minced lamb, tomatoes, onions, pepper paste and a squeeze of lemon, and you’ll know exactly what i mean.
when you wrap it all up, it’s hard to beat the 3-p trifecta furn beaino perfects: price, portion, and premium-ness. no matter how you slice it, the verdict’s the same. but now, thanks to the newly established central kitchen, you can bring home a taste and waft of the bakery, seven days a week, 18 hours a day.
