Beirut Lebanon Restaurant, Jakarta

Finally, I had a chance to try Lebanese cuisine! I had spotted this Beirut Lebanon Restaurant many times and wondered how the Lebanese cuisine tasted. The result is a wonderful satisfaction! My colleagues and me really enjoyed our meals here. The strong herbs, spices and olive oil like most of the Mediterranean cuisines really dominated in the authentic Lebanese cuisine.

This Beirut Lebanon restaurant has a warm and comfy ambiance.
Although at one side of the wall, there are a lot of guns and swords hanging as a part of the decorations.

  1. Nowadays I hesitate entering a restaurant that's suppose to have authentic food from a specific culture, but also serves crinkle-cut french fries...heheh. I had a lot of bad luck with places like that. But I'm glad you enjoyed your meal.

  2. You have hit a nerve with this post, Selba. Lebanese cuisine is close to my heart and I absolutely love it. It may sound silly but one of the things I immediately craved when I saw it was the Ayran. It just never tastes the same when I prepare it at home. Even when I make my own yogurt.

    You must have had a wonderful time visiting this restaurant. Thank you so much for sharing...

  3. I was here last year. Really bad experience. Nasi kebuli tasted like it was made with Indomie's seasoning. Truly not lebanese... Better to go across the street and buy "Martabak mesir" with kari kambing. Street food but 1000 times more delish and cheaper!

  4. glaciajo: Yeah, the french fries definitely isn't a part of the authentic of Lebanese cuisine. But it's really good when you dip it with the garlic sauce.

    louise: The Ayran was so delicious! My colleague and I really enjoyed it. I wonder what's the composition of the sugar and salt to make it so delicious.

    PFx: Oh.. so sorry to hear your bad experienced in this restaurant. My colleague ordered it and I had a chance to try it. It tasted good with strong herbs rather than Indomie's seasoning. Hmmm... maybe they had improved the taste or there's a new chef? ;)

  5. Oh, I was looking for Beirut Lebanon & found it right here on your blog...Yay, can't wait until my turn to try it out for myself next week =P

  6. ellyna: Hope you'll have a good experience of dining there as much as I did. Give the Samosa cheese a try - so yummy! :)
