Whether you’re looking for a traditional Lebanese breakfast or an upscale fine dining experience, the ancient city of Sidon has plenty of wonderful restaurants to keep you satisfied. This Lebanese city has been serving up delicious food for thousands of years, but today, we’re going to focus on Sidon’s food culture in the modern era!
Start the Day with a Tasty Breakfastz
Although the first meal of the day is usually enjoyed at home with family in Lebanon, there are plenty of great restaurants serving up breakfast in Sidon. Many of the people at breakfast restaurants will be fellow tourists, but it’s still a great way to indulge in some amazing Lebanese flavors!
If you’re looking for something sweet, you’ll find many restaurants serving Halawa spread, which is similar to hummus but sweeter. On the other hand, if you’re craving something savory, be on the lookout for some spicy Shakshooka. And if you won’t be making it to Lebanon any time soon, stop by Sidon Lebanese Grille and Bakery for a taste of Shakshooka at home!
Explore the New Food Truck Scene for Lunch

If you’re looking for something creative for lunch, Burger Experiment serves burgers with a spicy Lebanese twist. But if you’re in the mood for something more traditional, check out Doodz Truck. This hot new food truck serves more traditional Lebanese faire such as pita sandwiches and shawarma.
Unwind for the Night with a Relaxing Dinner
