Welcome to Al Halabi Restaurant here in lovely Jal El Dib Lebanon. This place I have been coming to with my friend for some time and they really do Lebanese food a step higher than most places and the service is almost over attentive but still appreciated.
When you walk up the stairs to the left there is a women who I have seen for years making fresh pita for your table She is beautiful has always given me the same smile and makes amazing pitas. I wish to thank her for that as there is her love in those hands.
As soon as you sit down the nuts come and beans. My friend Rafi quickly dismissed them from the table before he ate them
This is a dish of cheese, tomato, onion and parsley. add some olive oil on it and your set.
Baba ghanoush, made with fire roated eggplant divine
Houmus....also divine and perfect classic presentation
Always pickles and olive on the table if there are not you are in the wrong place
Lamb Kebeh, we got it supper spicy with peppers and parsley in the middle to dip. Eat this with a little pitta heavan.
I need to update this tomorrow when Rafi tells me what it is this one I love
ok so to probably piss off anyone who did not like the picture of the little birds here is my sparrow mini lebanese taco grilled sparrow, garlic sauce, mint, hot pepper....so good!
ok send me the hate mail, here is the body and the head of the grilled sparrow that I had they are delicacy and also very expensive for 6 about 30 usd
Here was a last min dish it is pumpkin with spinach and onion in the middle. almost like a spinach pie with a potato crunchy outside. really good very filling.
Chicken Tawook, chicken Kabob moist, huge flavor i killed all the garlic sauce with this one.
sorry about this one but this was lamb meat in tomato onions garlic and some other magical spice. very very huge is flavor
Here is the table cleared and filled with sweets the gallery of them is next
dont ya wish you were sitting here?????hmmm
and we finish with some Lebanese coffee which has a very strong cardamon flavor. perfect for after all the food. This is about an once, to bad they dont have a Starbucks 1200 calorie Trenta Latte to offer (sorry had to get it in)
Dinner was amazing and I thank my friend Rafi, his wife Mara and my little friend Andria for the company.
