So if you eat Vegetarian in hostels that have kitchens, you won't starve,and if you find a Kosher Butcher, you can eat well. fyou include fresh fish,which most cities have, you'll eat well.

Can you eat smoked fish? I love smoked Mackerel, for example.Then there is salted fish, which the Spanish and portugese love.


Now, if i had restriction, being a lazy eater, I'd bring about 2 kilos of Matzoh, Dried fruits, dried homemade beef jerky, 4 kilos of that, and add butter. (Margarine is probably LESS kosher, especially the ones with butterfats)

Even then I'd have to go to Istanbul and stock up on the probably one Kosher store that exists.

As long as you don't wear clothes that show your religion, speak about it in public, you will be fine. Not all Lebanese hate Israel, just the SHIA. Many Christians are fine with Israel.

Lebanon is a fun palce to visit, albeit unstable at time. am there now, hit me up if you need help.
