Only in Lebanon: Warfare and fast food mix well

28Jun08

Militant-themed Fast Food Beirut, LebanonA new fast-food eatery opened in Beyrouth’s southern suburbs (Dahyeh) named ‘Buns & Guns‘. The entrance welcomes you in neatly stacked sand bags. The inside is festooned with camouflage nets, defused mortar shells and live ammunition. Employees in military uniforms serve meals and the cooks wear military helmets. Customers enter the restaurant under a sign bearing the restaurant’s name – in English – and the slogan, “a sandwich can kill you,” a reference to the large portions.

Lebanon has witnessed the standards of fast food restaurants increase exponentially since the 1990s; You have to admit, this military-themed marketing strategy is quite original.

  5. Not so original as you have the real stuff in the steet courtesy of Hezbollah. I have to admit that the sand bags are useful in case of a street battle or a bombardment.
