What to eat at a Lebanese Restaurant
We asked our waiter what is a typical Lebanese dinner. He explained a typical meal consists of hot and cold starters incorporating fresh herbs and spices, such as mint, parsley, oregano, cumin and garlic and classic dishes such as falafel, meatballs and skewers. So, we ordered a Lebanese Mezza – a mixed dish of starters and main course for two to try a selection of plates at once.
We enjoyed humus, one made of chickpeas, another of aubergines, falafel, meat balls and the most fresh parsley salad we have ever tasted. More small dips and dishes were served within a few minutes. A warm pita bread made the starters complete – it was a colourful delight for the eyes. We used the pita to scoop up the dips and sauces and pick up the meatballs. A great excuse to eat with the fingers!
As a main dish we had skewers of lamb and chicken served on an aromatic Basmati rice. We were impressed how deliciously it all tasted. We knew then that this restaurant would become one of our favourites in Maspalomas. Totally recommended!
Restaurant Beirut Lounge Area & Shishas
After the main course, you can hang out in the lounge area of the terrace and enjoy an aromatic Shisha or one of their fancy cocktails. And don’t forget to taste the authentic Lebanese desserts like the baklava or the typical flan flambé, which is a caramel custard dessert. The French, who’s cuisine has much influenced Lebanese cuisine, introduced the flan to the Lebanon in the mid 1900. Since then it has become a popular dessert.
