In a narrow, nameless, and crowded street in Damascus, you'll find Narcissus, a place you'll never forget. Narcissus Palace is a beautiful old 18th-century house that has been converted into a restaurant. It is a true center of social life and talk in Damascus. If one wants to know how Syrians spend their time (or what they eat and chat about), then all you have to do is come here, although, like many other places in Damascus, finding it may be a bit difficult. Just ask any of the friendly Syrians as they all know. With an atmosphere of musician playing lutes and bubbling fountains, you can try the best of Syrian food: mint salad, delicious hummus, stuffed eggplant, the famous drink "bolo," lentil soup, or spicy grilled chicken.
