About Deedee’s Blog

“You only live once,” said Deedee. That’s why she lives with passion and sensuality. This is reflected in everything she does and everything she consumes, be it food, beverage, or in human form.

This blog is about gastronomy in Lebanon (or Leboland, as I endearingly like to call my country) and on other ‘planets’. I also write about food I’ve had at friends’ or cooked myself.

Deedee doesn’t tolerate mediocrity, especially when it comes to gastronomy (in the full sense of the word… Google it). So, if Deedee goes somewhere and has a good experience, she’ll write about it commendably… BUT, if there’s something off, Deedee will definitely make sure to whip them into shape!

You only live once, or at least, it’s the only one you remember! So here’s to you enjoying life, eating with passion, drinking with thirst, and having a blast with this blog.

All entries on www.ddmcfly.wordpress.com are purely my personal opinion. You’re welcome to comment if you agree, disagree, or have something further to add.

Shukran’, ‘Thanks’ andMerci’ for checking out my blog!

    lek I love your blog wleh. Yesterday I had lunch at Paul’s and I couldn’t believe how bad the service there was. I mean, are the waiters stoned??? They served my coffee without a stack of sugar, so I had to frickin wait to get someone’s attention and ask for sugar. When I sat down I waited a long while before they came to take my order, and I had already waited a while before they brought me the frickin menu. It took forever to get my bottle of water. When the food arrived, I had no napkins. I had to work hard to get the attention for napkins. WTF??? Oh, and I did have to give my order twice, with about 10 seconds in between as the first waiter decided to simply tell another waiter to take my order. And they all had the same stunned look on their face – like all the frickin time! I swear they are either stoned or just plain dumb. WTF???

      Oh my Bob!! I couldn’t agree more… I boycotted Paul’s years ago. Had a similar experience and even went back and gave them a second chance. I think at the time it took the food over an hour to be served.
      I would have to say the waiters are dumb because they haven’t been TRAINED.
      A word to the wise: Paul’s SUCKS! Don’t go there! Don’t encourage unprofessional restaurants/cafés just because they have a “signé” name or because they have fancy cars blocking everyone’s way.

    Hi Deedee,
    i love your blog….i need help and i have no doubt you are the right person to reach out to.
    I want to propose to my girlfriend and I am looking for a nice romantic place to do that. There are three elements my girlfriend would like: 1) live music, preferably piano, 2) cozy setting, and 3) outdoor seating, or nice outlook. The food is important, but for this special occasion, i am willing to compromise to get most of the three elements above.
    Does anything come to mind? Any suggestions?


    • Deedee McFly says:

      Hi Elias,
      I hear Iris (on the roof of the AnNahar Bldg) has a nice sunset setting with a jazz band. I haven’t personally been there, but you could go check it out in person before you make your plans.
      Another suggestion would be É Cafe on Soursok has a piano player, the food is good and it’s somewhat cozy. I personally love the É Cafe in Byblos but that doesn’t have live music.
      I’ll keep brainstorming for you.
      Thanks for asking and good luck!!
      Keep me posted with what happens.

    Hello Deedee- I am chairman and founder of Burger Nation Hamra, and have run across your review of our place, wich I believe was quite some time ago when we first started. You have some very valid comments and constructive feedback. I would like to share with you that we have taken those comments on board and have made a number of changes since then. Please come back again and let us know your thoughts now that we’ve had more time to get our act together 🙂
