The Lebanese American Festival Las Vegas was featured last year in the Las Vegas Review Journal for its tantalizing taste of Lebanese culture in the form of traditional fare, music, and other amusements. Festival-goers can opt for a combination plate ($10) overflowing with five samples of their choosing. Handpicked steamed grape leaves cover spiced meat and rice, relieved of the arduous task of clothing statues. Ground beef, lamb, and onion tickle taste buds in the kafta kebab, and hummus or baba gannouj, among other classic dishes, complete the culinary pentad. Sandwiches ($7) fill beleaguered bellies with marinated beef shawarma or crispy fried falafel before baklava and other traditional desserts play the meal out.
As guests dine, the strains of live music acts fill the evening air, soothing bellies with traditional Lebanese melodies as well as American acts. Pintsize patrons develop appetites and unrealistic beliefs about royalty through kids' amusements such as bounce castles.
