During our visit to Ein Zebde, for the inauguration event of the mountain trail linking Ein Zebde to Mresti, a traditional lunch was prepared by women from the village. On the menu, typical and delicious food such as saj pastries stuffed with wild edible plants, fattoush and shish barak were served. What caught our attention was the famous potato kebbeh: A dough of mashed potatoes and bulgur, stuffed with labneh and Qawrama and grilled on charcoal.
Potato kebbeh or kebbit batata is typical of the West Bekaa villages, especially Ein Zebde and Saghbine. It can be consumed either grilled or fried, and can be stuffed with labneh, onions and dry mint for a vegetarian version.
