A yellow, fully equipped kitchen container, finds itself nestled in the middle of an un-built lot in Mar Mikhael, facing the bus cemetery.

Magenta bougain villeas perfume the air, furniture all built from junk, a bar created of oil barrels, a petanque course lays shyly on the side; this is what the pop-up restaurant looks like.
This concept has seen the light within a mere month and it is the brainchild of “Food For Thought”; a food consultancy company created by Mario Jr. Haddad and Chef Tomas Reger, respectively owner and executive chef of Le Sushi Bar.
Apart form the “wonderland” feel of the place, it is the food that takes center-stage, since Chef Tomas is responsible for creating a different menu daily, all based on the concept of market food and what is in season.
“The idea of the pop-up consists of establishing a temporary restaurant space, where foodies can expect to have a unique culinary experience right until the rainy season commences” explains Mario Jr. “It is also an original way to initiate the Lebanese people to experience the trend of market food and slow food”.
