The New Lesbian / La Nueva Lesbiana

La versión espanol está después de la versión inglés.

NO MATTER HOW many times we said it, we still got our words mixed. "We must try the new Lesbian place down the street."

It's Lebanese. Not Lesbian.

Not that I would mind having a new Lesbian restaurant nearby. Of course, the lesbians could serve any kind of food they like. If they wanted to, they could even specialize in Lebanese food.

Anyway, Monday night we went to, Fairuz, the new Lebanese restaurant down the street (just 3 minutes away) and it was excellent.

Sadly, we didn't meet any lesbians.

NO IMPORTA CUÁNTAS veces lo dijimos, todavía tenemos nuestras palabras mezcladas. "Tenemos que ir al nuevo lugar lesbiana en la calle."

Es libanés. No lesbiana.

No es que me importaría tener un nuevo restaurante lesbiana cerca. Por supuesto, las lesbianas podrían servir cualquier tipo de comida que les gusta. Si quisieran, incluso podrían especializarse en comida libanesa.

De todos modos, el lunes por la noche fuimos a Fairuz, el nuevo restaurante libanés y fue excelente.

Lamentablemente, no conocimos a ninguna lesbiana.

  2. OMG! My best friend growing up was Lebanese and I always looked forward to having meals at his place.
    His father made the best Kibbeh......he didn't cook the meat...left it raw and spiced it up so that it tasted cooked!!
    This food looks divine to me! Must be my 'Mediterranean' blood.

      I suppose a lot depends on where they open the place.

      I've had lots of good food in restaurants owned or staffed by lesbians. The first was Mexican. Thankfully, no one called it the Lesbian Mexican place... or Mexican Lesbian.

  12. Fairuz LOL! so original as a name. Most Lebanese restaurant are named after her. Good singer but I don't think she cooked.

      Of course YOU would know who she is. I had never heard of her. The menu and restaurant are adorned with her portraits and her bio appears in the menu in both Spanish and English. I think this company has two other Fairuz restaurants in Southern Spain.

  13. Oh yum! The thing I miss not living in the city is the variety of foods, both in restaurants and markets. Trade-offs, I suppose. Isn't Ellen Lebanese?

  14. I am continually amazed (and mad-jealous!) how splendid are your food and restaurants.
    I get stupid that I forget 'ethnic restaurants' happen in other countries too. You must have lots of lovelies.
