Fresh Kibbeh , made with raw lamb or beef meat ! but good luck finding someone who knows how to prepare it.
You guys don't know what you are missing !
Another raw meat Gourmet : raw liver from a fresh Kill,whether deer , beef or lamb, but it's an acquired taste and not healthy for diabetics.
Smoked Salmon .
You are so lucky to have a great Lebanese restaurant nearby. A good friend of mine is from Lebanon and he introduced me to kibbeh, baba ganoush, gyros, and ouzo. Nothing like drinking ouzo with ice while eating Lebanese food. I was never able to get raw kibbeh though. When I would ask they would tell me the lamb was not fresh enough. A valid reason according to my friend.
Never had raw liver but I did have goose liver that was nearly raw, just seared in the pan. It was absolutely delicious.
Lox and bagels with onions, cream cheese, and capers....mmmmmmmm
