Living in a town in the south with a considerable (and old and
established) Lebanese community, I have seen it transliterated just about
every way EXCEPT kibbi. I have seen kibby, kibbeh, kibbe and kibbee.
(Don't think I've seen kibbie.) I haven't worked up the nerve to try the
raw version, but  "baked kibbeh" is indeed good stuff.
