Beirut Restaurant Auckland
A new Lebanese restuarant in the heart of Auckland. Weather permitting one can sit inside on some elegant chairs or outside on the pavement, where the views are not idyllic but some warmth does pervade in the summer months.
The menu is small and generally it is best to select maybe 5-6 dishes between two people. The food is not however typically Lebanese at all. So those expecting skewers of meat and chicken will be dissapointed. A good mixture would be some breads like the Persian flatbread or Afghan bread, made with black courgette hummus and poppy seed. Combined with a salad such as Fattoush or maybe Bubba (burnt aubergine, sujak, toasted sesame and black cabbage).
Pehrpas the most visual dish is the Fattoush with amazing colours and textures . Looks almost like food art. The portions are also not huge so those with an american accent might be dissapointed.
