Lebanese butcher and Chepita's house

scot | Sep 29, 2007 03:30 PM

Quick report on LB in falls church (off of 66) and Chepita's house in chantilly (metrotech, near the lowes).

Lebanese butcher is good stuff. The food is simple and the people are nice. I have read a couple reviews on other sites talking about the smell from the butcher side, but it didn't bother us. Some other patrons were.. confused by the bone saw sound though!

Sometimes you worry about walking in to a place where you dont know what is going on, but this place made me feel comfortable. Something comical about a 5'2" chef behind a 5'1" counter you order at. They obviously care about what they are doing and their food much more than convenient countertops.

Chepita's house is a newer chicken place in what might be the next ethnic maul in the area. Maybe one day it will be the place to go. As for the food, its all good. I was expecting just some basic chicken and not much else but they have a ton of goodness, even civiche on the weekends.

So far everything I have tried is good, except for the fries. Nothing wrong with them, but nothing special. The chicken is on par or better than pollo inca but nowhere near pollo rico. The pork is tasty, and the other thing I cant remember the word for also tasted great :)

I'll update if I can remember what the name was.
