Cabbage Roll @ Lebanon’s Cafe
You don’t have to be Irish to eat cabbage. Cabbage rolls are almost universal in Greek and Middle Eastern restaurants. The ones at Lebanon’s Cafe are stuffed with beef with a bit of tomato and enough seasoning to make them mildly spicy and herbal. Although this sounds heavy, in fact it’s served as an appetizer, and leaves room for an entree. Great cool-weather dish.
