Yesterday Kerry and I were on a mission to find a couple ofthese
after our local Burlington store came up empty despite showing lots of stock on-line. So the Etobicoke store looked promising but to make sure that this was not a total disappointment if their on-line inventory proved just as unreliable, I researched eating places in the vicinity. Seemed to both of us that we needed to stretch a little on our lunches. I came across this Lebanese
We arrived early to avoid the lunch time rush and had the place to ourselves for the whole time.
As usual we put together a meal that lent itself to sharing and sampling as much of the menu as possible.
I started with an Alexander Keith's red and Kerry had plain tap water. The first thing to arrive on our table were these raw carrots which were very lightly pickled and salted:
We ordered the Mo'ajjanet - One piece of Kibbe, Sambousik (homemade pastry stuffed with minced beef, onions,
and spices), Fatayer (spinach, onion, olive oil and fresh lemon juice wrapped
and baked in a homemade pastry.), and Ri’a’at (phyllo pastry rolls filled
with a combination of cheeses and spices):
Falafel which Kerry declared as being the lightest she had ever had. I am not a fan of falafel but admit that these were tasty:
Mo’ajjanet: One skewer each of lahem mishwee (AAA filet mignon), shish kafta (ground lean beef seasoned with parsley, onion and spices.) and shish tawook (tender grilled chicken breast) served with toum garlic sauce and Mezzas own spicy bbq sauce on pita:
There - now we have showed you that we can eat something other than Asian food! Next time I am sure we will return to our comfort food and you'll be treated to yet another photo of pho.
