You can’t say NO to food

Big Guy Food is huge in the Middle Eastern culture, and is one of the most important ways to express hospitality and generosity.  When you are invited to an Arab’s home, you will be served a variety of dishes & drinks.  If your host is generous, then expect the amount of food to be enough to feed a small army :-)  If at any point you stop eating, you will be offered more of everything that you had and a portion of the dish that you missed.  Even if you decline something, your host will offer it to you again & again until you accept (unless, of course, you give a health reason like diabetes OR you decline three consecutive times).
