Fatair Al Basha is right on the eastern tip of Calle Ocho where Brickell turns into Little Havana. It’s not a spot with a lot of foot traffic, but this little Lebanese market/restaurant is worth pulling over for if you’re even remotely in the mood for shawarma, shish kebab, falafel, or any of the other Middle Eastern dishes they make really well here. We like the kibbe platter (which you should get with a side of hummus and Lebanese rice), but they also do a “Lebanese pizza” sprinkled with zaatar and vegetables for under $4.
