The city’s newest Buffeteria trend, or if you’re unfamiliar with Three Broomsticks™ from the HP movies, is Le Merou Fish Market’s Poke.

This new seafood retailer & wholesaler, has also premium cooking & delivery services, dishing up Beirut’s best fish meals and sandwiches. Amongst its weird yet ultimately good introductions, is the world’s latest craze: Poke.

This raw fish salad is served in Hawaiian cuisine and now has hit the opposite shores of LA & Miami, traditionally formed from yellow fin tuna or octopus as bases. Adaptations may also feature raw salmon or various shellfish as a main ingredient served with this salad’s common seasonings, heavily influenced by Japanese and other Asian cuisines including soy sauce, green onions, and sesame oil.
