Cuba Libre:

  • Ice in tall glass
  • 1.5 oz Light Cuban Rum (if available)
  • half oz of Lime Juice
  • wedge of lime
  • 4oz Cola, top up glass (who we kidding only Coke will do in this)
  • Drink it like you're in Havana


Ful Medames:

All right don’t come @ me, Egyptians! I know I know, everyone’s got their family recipe and the “right way” to make this but forget all that and accept that this is just delicious, even if it’s not how your mom made it.


  • 1 can of fava beans 
  • Olive oil 
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds 
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced 
  • 1/2 medium onion, small dice
  • 1/2 tomato, diced
  • 1 tbsp tomato paste
  • 1 tsp harissa
  • Fresh lemons 
  • Salt
  • water
  • “Accoutrements"


  • Place a heavy saucepan over medium heat for a few minutes.
  • Add 2 tbsp of olive oil, cumin, onions and garlic. Fry for 2-3 minutes
  • Add tomatoes, tomato paste and harissa.
  • Add salt and 2 tbsp of lemon juice and cook over medium heat for 10 min.
  • Check every 3 min and add 1/4 cup of water if it sticks to the pan. 


Your final result should have some lemony-tomato tang, a cooked garlic taste, enough salt and very little excess water. 

For garnishes/toppings you have TONS of options: ground cumin, paprika, chili flakes, fresh tomatoes, chopped raw onions, fresh parsley, fresh cilantro, chopped chillies, hard boiled eggs, and tahini sauce!
