Last year we drove by this little Lebonese grocer and decided to check it out. We found out a few of things that make this place great:
1. It has a lunch counter
2. Spices are very affordable in their grocery
3. Friendly service
Leila’s Mediterranean Groceries & Deli of Virginia Beach Blvd. has a great lunch menu but they close early. I do love the olives—antipasto—you get before your meal. I highly suggest the baba ghanoush; if you order fries for some reason, be prepared to wait. They have to heat the oil up to get those going.
Speaking of the kitchen, while you’re browsing around the grocery you can peek in and watch them cook the food if you like. The Beef Shawarma is pictured in the post. If you’re in the area check it out!
