Lebanese Taverna offers Ramadan special

We've grown accustomed to Restaurant Week deals.

But Ramadan deals?

Owl Meat Gravy was good enough to alert me to the special Lebanese Taverna advertised on Facebook:

You haven't really assimilated into American culture until you've packaged the high holy days for commercial purposes.

If I'm fasting all day, I'm not going to break it with soup and juice. I'd go with the lamb dinner for two for one.

And, LL, that reminds me to be on the look out for the big Ramadan sales at Mattress Warehouse and Mr. Carpet.

RoCK, try fasting for 24 hours and then report back to how you'd like to break your fast. ;-) Eating light is key. Your system will thank you.

Unless you live on the far moon of Rigel 7, you wouldn't be fasting for 24 hours.

Note that the special is only good if you order an entrée.

This seems like a great idea and the right place to do it ... There seem to be many women wearing head scarves in Harbor East, so I'm sure there's plenty of takers. Cooking the break-fast meal yourself has to be miserable, when you can't even taste a bite. And soup and juice are easy to dole out while customers wait for a main course. I wonder if juice is part of the break-fast custom, like the dates ...
