Our Lady of Lebanon Church, 8 East Mountain Rd, Waterbury Ct


Our Lady of Lebanon is a Lebanese-Maronite church dedicated to promoting an understanding of the Lebanese culture and the Maronite faith.

Some of the dishes being served:













The vertical grill is a typical Middle Eastern barbecue.

Thin layers of beef, chicken or lamb are placed on the skewer, seasoned, and slowly rotates in front of an electric element. The juices continue to keep the meat moistened.

As the outside cooks, it is shaved off, placed into a pita bread and is combined with lettuce, tomato, and seasoned with a tahini sauce.

The Greek people call this gyro.

Come and enjoy a taste of something different.

Barbara, I have it on good authority, My wife, that you're wrong on both accounts. The Greeks and Armenians all copied it from the Phoenicians, the descendants of whom are the Lebanese. As for the grape leaves, by mid June the leaves are not as tender, but my wife has picked them later than that. We have an Uncle that has a grape arbor in his yard, and my wife will pick the leaves towards the end of the trailer, which will always be the youngest and most tender.

Josh, this community has been very good to me

Ken coming right up, but my favorite, the schwarma would be a little heavy for breakfast

I must admit that this is one ethnic food that I've never experienced. If I was in your neck of the woods this weekend, I'd definitely give it a try though.

Craig, when you get over to the Charlotte areas, there are some Middle Eastern restaurants that serve this type of food, none of it in buns, though

Ginny, it wasn't an argument, it was a spirited conversation held the Middle Eastern way. My wife was born over there, while Barbara may have the heritage, she was born in this country so here recollections lack authenticity.

George, it is actually healthy food, so you wouldn't feel the pounds. Nothing is fried, and the ingredients are all natural. Now the deserts, that's another thing all together

Christine, it was a pleasure to meet you in person in Foxboro
