It sounds like the Greek dish Moussaka but it’s not quite the same. For sure both have eggplants but the Lebanese Moussaka’a is a vegetarian dish based on eggplant, chickpeas, tomato, mint, and olive oil. I don’t add any other herbs or spices because I like the taste of the eggplant and chickpeas to dominate in the mouth with a slight touch of tomato and mint.
If you are in Paris, you just cannot skip a trip to the As of the fallafel!!!
Whether you like falafels or not, it doesn’t matter, it’s the unavoidable experience of the Marais. You can buy it as a takeout at the counter outside on the sidewalk or you can get a table inside. And for that, good luck my friend!!
