What are the top 10 most loved restaurants for IESAV students? Let’s find out!

  1. Roadster diner

When Roadster Diner first opened its Achrafieh doors in 1998, the idea was simple: create the homiest, most authentic diner experience the city had ever seen. Even though it’s one of the best places you can visit in town, Roadster diner seems a little expensive for an everyday meal.

  1. Chez Roy

Chez Roy is the closest restaurant to the university. It’s a casual small place to have a meal, discussions with friends and play some Uno. But unfortunately this restaurant doesn’t have a variety in its menu and there’s not an unsmoking area.


  1. Crew hut

Best pasta place in Mar Mikael and a first choice for a hot cup of chicken alfredo. Loved during winter but some don’t find the meal quite enough.

  1. Pizza Nini

Loved for its 11000LL offer (mini pizza + fries + coke). Nevertheless, not all IESAV students seem to be fans of pizza.


  1. Mr Brown

What’s amazing about this restaurant is that you can choose which size of a salad you want and its price is quite good. Unfortunately, sandwiches are always delivered as cold as ice.

  1. McDonald’s

Everyone is a fan of McDonald’s and burger king for their crazy offers. Students can’t get enough of McDonald’s 19000LL offer and its crunchy nuggets.

  1. Burger King

You may be asking yourself why is Burger King at Top 4 not McDonald’s. Even though both have great offers, BK is a little bit more loved for its amazing steakhouse and chicken royal taste.


  1. Malak L Tawouk

First place that pops in mind when you’re broke and that ins’t as bad as it seems. This restaurant is the best place for 55cm “tawouk” sandwich!

  1. Sandwich w noss

Just when you ask for a tasty sandwich, “l katfa l malghoume” is the ultimate choice. 15 minutes away from the university, once you ordered, Sandwich w noss immediately sends you a link by message that let you trace your order all along the way and it gives you also the driver’s name & phone number.

  1. Classic Sandwich

Fastest, cheapest, tastiest place! 5$ are more than enough for a meal. You can’t get enough of it! Your order arrives in maximum 10 min!

To conclude, price and good taste is the thing that makes a student order again from a restaurant. So if you might open a restaurant later, know your audience!


Good taste makes everyone happy!


By happy. Be happy!

Comment perdre du poid et se sentire bien dans sa peau!


Vous aviez surement cliqué sur se lien en espérant tombé sur le site parfait qui vous aidera enfin a perdre du poids. Mais malheureusement non ! Je vais plutôt vous aider a vous sentir bien dans votre peau, et vous aimer tel que vous êtes. Pour cela, je vais vous donner mes les 3 secrets qui m’ont permis d’avancer a se stade la : aimez-vous, acceptez-vous, pardonnez-vous.


AIMEZ-VOUS: Malgré toutes les insécurité que vous détestiez chez vous, Aimez-vous. Encrez le dans votre tête. Je pourrais passer des heures a vous parler de toutes les raisons pour laquelle vous devriez vous aimer, mais une des raison la plus importante : si vous, vous ne vous aimiez pas, qui le fera alors ? Personnellement, je suis passer dans une période assez dure de ma vie, qui ma permit de prendre conscience sur certaine choses. Moi aussi, je voulais absolument perdre du poids. J’avais tout essayé, et je suis tombée dans l’anorexie. J’ai du énormément souffrir pour reprendre mon poids normale et avoir une sante saine. Et dans cette période la que j’ai regretter, et que j’ai compris que tout dépendait de moi et de ma façon de penser et voir les choses. En regagnant mon poids normale, j’ai tout simplement appris a m’aimer. D’ailleurs, j’ai un challenge pour vous, chaque matin réveiller vous, et noter toutes les choses que vous aimiez chez vous pendant 30 jours.


ACCEPTEZ-VOUS: La confiance en soit est l’une des clé du succès. Nous avons tous des insécurités qui nous feront très souvent doutes de nous et qui même parfois nous empêcherons de faire certaines choses. Avec le temps, pendant mon traitement, j’ai appris à identifier toutes mes insécurités, et a les accepter, parfois même m’en moquer moi même. Vous avez tout pour plaire, et tant que vous pouvez rester vous complimenter, même si cela paraît dure. Chaque matin, réveiller vous et face à un miroir, répéter vous que vous êtes belles. Plus vous le dites plus vous y croyez. En regagnant moi poids normale, je me suis très vite accepter. Pourquoi ne pas le faire ?


PARDONNEZ-VOUS: L’étape qui suit est très importante pour avancer. Pardonnez-vous. Pendant très longtemps vous aviez été dur sur vous même, vous vous été rabaisser. Vous vous êtes détesté, en pensant que si vous été comme sa, c’est de votre faute. Et plus vous le dites plus vous y croyez et plus vous lâcher tout. Pardonnez-vous car en fin de compte nous sommes tous humain. Nous avons tous des insécurités, et c’est parfois notre insécurité qui nous rende beau. Pendant mon anorexie je me suis tellement en voulut d’avoir échouer encore une fois. Je ne voulais plus rien faire, ni avancer et essayer d’aller mieux. Mais petit a petit j’ai pris conscience, ce n’était pas de ma faute et rien est encore perdu. Aujourd’hui lorsque j’y repense, j’ai un petit pincement au cœurs, mais je ne regrette rien et je ne men veux pour rien. Car grâce a tout ces moments horribles que j’ai pu vivre, j’y ai surmonté, et je suis devenue la fille que je suis aujourd’hui. Pardonnez est une force.

Live Long, Keep Snacking 😉

Healthy can be delicious, too !

People live in a dilemma between healthy and fast food. Every type has its advantages, disadvantages but percentages are different. Due to a psychological research, fast foods are very attractive because of their well designed and shaped dishes, which make the customer’s eyes lead the way and his tongue merely follow, to hide the drawbacks. « People’s perception is typically dominated by what their eyes see » Charles Spence.

Nutrition Decision


We all agree that fruits and vegetables are boring, needs effort, time and money to make a plate. But what if, we get to know more about theses babies, their magical benefits, enjoy observing their lovely colours and, tips and tricks to delightful and affordable meals?


The greatest wealth is health 

Healthy food can lead to a healthy lifestyle; therefore to a better living full of vitamins and fibers. These nutrients (protein, carbohydrates, vitamins, and minerals), help the body generate new cells, clean toxins and just function well every day. Eating properly, especially fruits and vegetables, can prevent future infections and diseases, like cancer, diabetes, high blood pressure and chronic diseases. They are fun to eat and help as a natural and quick snack. Some crunch, some splash, some you peel and some you don’t. Fruits and veggies are found everywhere in an enormous variety (fresh, canned, dried, frozen and 100% juice). People who care about staying fit, have to know that they are naturally low in calories and present fibers that keep the digestive system gratified.

Don’t be fooled: Fast food isn’t healthy

Junk food has a special taste and a very unique influence on the society. People are always busy and have no time to think about their meals or even to prepare something to eat, thinking that it will take forever to cook something healthy, which is not true. For this reason, they refer to drive through meals, when they can find fast foods restaurants on almost every street corner. In addition, to save money, fast food is the smartest way, for the reason that it’s much cheaper than homemade meals, which is as well, not that true. We all know, that some fast food in our restaurants nowadays, cost a big amount of money. Furthermore, theses types of food, present so many choices in different flavors from different cultures.


However, people who get used to this unhealthy lifestyle (especially high in sodium: potato chips, pizza, french fries…) have a high percentage of increasing stroke risks, heart diseases, shortness of breaths and diabetes. Obesity is the frequent consequence of junk food. People can’t make control of what they are eating and what is penetrating their bodies, as well as not being aware of their drawbacks. « For example, it would take 7 hours of exercise to burn off the calories in a large coke, fries and a big mac from Mc Donald’s ».


Who said deserts can’t be healthy?

Greek Yoghurt fruit tart:


The whole process of preparing this tart will take about 15 minutes of your precious time! The tart’s crust is made of nuts and dates. You can substitute dates with raisins or dried cranberries. Blend the two ingredients together to make a moist and press it into a tart or a cake pan. Disperse the Greek yogurt overtop. You can add any flavour to your mix, like vanilla or strawberry flavour.
