Restaurant Sign

I guess you could call this a "fast food" restaurant. It offers a typical dish called ful and tameez that is wildly popular in many countries in the Middle East. In the mornings, you can easily spot restaurants that sell ful and tameez because there is a crowd of workers in front of the shop eager to get their breakfasts. Ful (pronounced "fool") is a fabulous dip made of mashed fava beans and is cooked in large round steel pots with a small opening for a very long spoon. Tameez is a large flatbread that is baked in special rounded ovens and like many breads, it is scrumptious right out of the oven.
You might enjoy reading this post I wrote about ful and tameez after my husband had heart surgery, or this Arab News article about it.
