Liban Cafe & Restaurant, one of the new arrivals in Parkhurst, successfully brings Lebanon to South Africa. It boldly gives us a wholesome, authentic experience of Lebanese cuisine. As we entered, the first thing we noticed was that nearly the entire place was booked. It seemed as though Liban has already become a staple restaurant in Parkhurst. And yet, the service was quick and the food, extremely fresh. The staff was accommodating as well (Shout out to Ronald for being so amazing).
The menu offers an array of traditional and hearty grub meals, a handful of items from breakfast to dinner. You can eat anything from: Lebanese mezze, appetizers, salads, burgers, pizzas, pasta, shawarma, appetizers, main courses, on the grill and desserts.
We tried out the:
Halloumi Falafel: for starters: Halloumi cubes breaded with falafel served with a cocktail sauce and Lebanese spices. A great start to what was about to me an amazing lunch.
Kasteletta Lamb Chops: 4 pcs of lamb chops served with chips, the chops where cooked to perfection, flavourful and not overcooked, the chips were well spiced and had a delicious soft crunch. Meat lovers this is a the perfect place to come an indulge on great cuts.
Lemon Fish & Chips: Kingklip Fish, garlic, coriander, mustard and lemon juice served with chips. One of the best Fish & Chips I have had in a while. An explosion of fresh flavours.
Fish Tagine: Kingklip Fish, capsicums, tahini sauce topped with nuts. Another amazing burst of fresh flavours.
If you are ever in Parkhurst then pop by for a unique culinary experience like no other. A beautiful Lebanese restaurant with a flare for fine cuisine.
