The dining scene in Beirut can be a bit monotonous – how many more sushi restaurants and hipster burger diners can this city support? So those with curious taste buds should be pleased to hear that a very different sort of eatery has recently popped up in Gemmayzeh, one that only serves food once a month and has a rotating roster of global chefs. Aiming to introduce little-known cuisines to both members and the Lebanese public, the MCC is hosting monthly food nights where guests can eat all they want for just LL12,000 .Previously hosted by feminist collective Nasawiya, the food nights have been going on sporadically in some form or another for the past year.MCC's first food night in December, held shortly after their move to Gemmayzeh, featured Ethiopian food made by community member Rahel Abebe-Endale.The menu comprised five dishes: minchet abish, a slightly sweet stew made from ground beef; doro wat, chicken stew with whole hardboiled eggs mixed in; a pea stew called shiro wat; a yellow, turmeric-laden pea puree; and a white crumbly cheese called ayibe.The next food night, scheduled for the first week of February, will feature food from Congo.
