The new Junkyard opened its doors to a new concept of street food that will be available all throughout the summer. The idea is that instead of the traditional dining experience where the waiter approaches you and takes the order, you get to walk to the buses scattered around the place to choose your dish. The main outdoor space is basically a big fluid bar in the yard with tables on varying floor levels. When we arrived we got our coupons that can be exchanged for food, with a bracelet for ordering our drinks.
A bit of green integrated in the design made me forget that I’m in the middle of a busy Beirut street.
My strawberry Martini.
This is an example of the street vendor, and the food served is eclectic and suits all tastes.
I loved the concept and the setup, you get to walk around the place and socialize!
This is a dish from the Asian stand, 3 chicken skewers with Teriyaki sauce.
The rib-eye burger which according to my husband was top notch.
We tried the regular and truffle fries, they are both tasty and crispy (albeit oily) but the truffle fries are a must try with a perfect hint of coriander.
I don’t know the name of this drink but it looked very appealing on all the tables around me so I ordered it, all I know is that is has vanilla vodka and it was gone within a minute!
This is a small but tasty bite, with halloum cheese and sesame seeds.
The Amaretto was delicious.
And as for the Sangria, its by far the best I’ve tasted, no joke.
Make sure you head to Mar Mikhael this season to experience the new Junkyard, and by all means order the Sangria!
