Now that’s a place you HAVE to know. It’s the place that has it all. Karout. From the tiniest screw you thought you’d never find, to kitchen appliances, paper stuff, tupperwares, barbecue material, bathroom stuff, paint, baskets, kids stuff, school stuff, ropes, glue, glitters, pens, I mean anything, for super cheap prices. It’s next to Hadath, on "Tarik Saida el Adimeh" (Old Saida Road). I suck at directions, so just head to this region, and do as I do, ask someone on the road - one of the things I love most about Lebanon! - everybody knows the mega store Karout there. That’s where you can find little “treasures” such as those amazing pop corn buckets I fell in love with. And now they add a little touch to our movies night home. Also note that pop corn is very good for the health. In its basic form - maize kernels heated until they puff up and burst - it's low in calories and laced with antioxidants and vitamins that strengthen our ability to fight disease.
According to my baby app, its even very good for the baby. I would strongly recommend buying raw pop corn instead of the packed microwave ones. Super easy to prepare. A few drops of cooking oil in a pot and one handful of corn that you’ll enjoy seeing pop if you have a transparent lid. (seriously, its fun :))
