Lebanese delight in secret Banus

Feb 03, 2012 No Comments by

If you are looking for a spot to grab a drink and watch the boats cruise in and out of Banus, then head over to Baalbak. This family run Lebanese restaurant on the Paso Benabola might not look like much from the outside, but the food is superb and it’s a great place to people watch as well.

Baalbak has a great selection of starters, including a tasty humus and aubergine dip as well as Fattoush (vegetable salad) and the Kibbe  – five bite sized pieces including Falafel – is great to share. I also tried out the Kafta, a mixture of lamb, chicken and mincd lamb kebab served with rice and a million miles away from dodgy late night kebabs that you might have had before.

I finished off with a mint tea (it’s one of my new addictions, and I’ve had a few over the years,trust me) and a selection of fruits and Baklawa – delicious cakes. Open seven days a week from 12.30, Baalbak also offers Shisha pipes as well.
