Syrian Foods That Are Literally Impossible to Dislike

by Shams Farid

The civil war in Syria has caused millions of Syrians to flee their war-torn country. Images of men, women and children living in camps, walking vast distances and risking perilous journeys to safety are commonplace.


Syria has an ancient food culture and was once — believe it or not — a bread basket for the Middle East, but sadly, the conflict has since damaged agriculture and food supplies to many areas. In this article, I compile a list of my favorite Syrian foods that everyone should try at least once in their lives.

WE SAID THIS: Thank you, Syrians.
