The Lebanese-Palestinian Ballroom

Note: Sweet 15 (Quince años) is the Latin equivalent to our Sweet 16

Apparently, this is a new establishment. Their site (Click Here) is still under construction.

It seems to be built like a mosque. I do not know if they are merely mimicking a Mid-Eastern style, or this reflects the personal beliefs of the owners.

But notice the name: Palestino-Libanés (Lebanese Palestinian)

There is a Lebanese aspect to this. Most Lebanese in Mexico are (Maronite) Catholic. However, those Catholics would be more assimilated and Western.

So I cannot say if the owner(s) is/are Muslim Christian; but two Arab ethnicities are involved, Whether by two owners, two styles of food, or one person of two ancestries, I do not know.

What I can say is that is it looks like a classy joint. Arabs tend to have a high station in Latin America. This may be one example.

The Latins call pita bread “pan árabe” (Arab bread). This is basically pita bread from scratch.

Arab Bread from an Argentine Poster

This video was posted on YouTube by an Argentine poster.

What is Arab bread [pan árabe]? We know it as Pita Bread. It is interesting that the Latinos refer to it as Arab bread; and in doing so, recognize its Arab ethnic origins.
