What feeds your soul?? Hot celebrities or delicious cuisine?

Crushing on male singers is a full-time job for young girls everywhere who plaster posters on their bedroom walls, quiz friends on celebrity trivia, and create entire scrap books dedicated to their idols - (with little hearts and Mr. and Mrs. X scribbled around their photos!). Yes, the struggle of being “in love” with unreachable stars was real. Heck, we even felt heartbroken when one of them got hitched.

But then we grew up and something new fed our desires: food, glorious food. Food doesn’t judge, nor does it question our life choices. Food doesn’t serenade us with a hopelessly romantic song before leaving us for another woman. And it stays by our side (and on our hips and waistline!). No, food simply understands, and tastes even better than Wael Kfoury’s kisses!

But who would you rather: A celebrity heartthrob or one of those yummy dishes?

For decades, Lebanese singer Wael Kfoury was the ultimate schoolgirl crush. He was especially popular when he was drafted into the army and photos in uniform were plastered on girls' rooms everywhere. Wael’s still got it at 44, but can he compete against the divine goodness that is shawerma?

Gaza or Nablus? The former gave us the beloved Gazan Arab Idol winner Mohammed Assaf, who remains on top of his game three years after winning the show - he even has a movie to his name… not too shabby!  Meanwhile, Nablus produced the sweet, delicious, sugar syrup-dripping dessert Knafeh. Who can say no to that? Definitely a tough choice!

Morocco hot export singer Saad Lamjarred is handsome and talented and underscores the country's reputation as one of the top 10 African nations for best looking men. While your mama would be delighted if you brought him home to meet her, wouldn’t you rather have a lifetime supply of couscous? Who’s the real “M3allem” in this battle?

Lebanese singer Joseph Attieh is one of the few Star Academy winners who scored more fame and success after leaving the show. His distinctive vocals and bad boy good looks hypnotize Arab ladies, almost as much as red velvet cheesecake. Utopia would be being spoon-fed red velvet cheesecake by Joseph Attieh. A girl can dream?!

Consider Iraqi singer Kazem El Saher: a class act whose looks, fashion sense, voice, and manners make him the perfect bachelor. Competing against Kazem is sushi, the most popular entree in Japanese cuisine, which when prepared to perfection, is irresistible. The choice is yours!

Science has proven that eating pizza makes you just as happy as falling in love. How's that compete with Lebanon’s golden boy Ramy Ayach? A cutie when he started in showbiz, Ayach is a current-day dreamboat whose marriage to a real-life Barbie doll (Dalida Ayach) hasn't stopped fans crushing on him. Then again, pizza is just a phone call away.

Nassif Zeytoun is one of the top Syrian singers in the Arab World. Sure he’s eye candy, but how’s he compare to Jordanian mansaf? The classic dish of cooked yoghurt, rice and succulent meat is a national treasure.  Once you go Mansaf, you never go back. Can the same be said for Nassif?

Iraqi Majid Al Muhandes has a voice that takes you to sad depths (Ana 7anneit) yet returns you to bliss (Ya 7ob Ya 7ob). He was also blessed with charming looks (with some surgical enhancements). His voice may lull you to sleep, much like Msakhan, the Palestinian pancake. Salty and oil-dipped, plan on sleeping after you indulge.
