Yum! - Libya


All Libyan restaurants!: Which soup?

No matter where you eat in Libya, you can be sure the first thing on the menu will be soup!
Always Libyan soup, maybe Moroccan soup, fish soup, lentil soup, vegetable soup ..... that's about the complete list - though one place I went to had a variation - prawn soup!

It didn't worry me - I love soup and it was winter. The best I had was a vegetable soup at the Moroccan restaurant on the top floor of the Corinthia Hotel - probably the best vegetable soup I've ever tasted ( for the cooks amongst us - I'd say they made a really good vegetable stock, reduced and strained it to a clear intense broth and then added beautifully trimmed vegetables in tiny dice and sprigs and cooked them to a perfect al dente - it was fabulous!), but a bowl of lentil soup and a sandwich at the Badawen Restaurant (Lebanese) around the back of the Kabir Hotel made for an excellent lunch at 3LD for the soup, sandwiches (cheese and meat filled) and a Coke.

Address: Badawen Restaurant - Baladia St 110-112

Directions: A block behind the Kabir Hotel
