Time Out Melbourne

Easily the most iconic establishment on the strip, the food encapsulates the essence of Lebanese cuisine: falafel, tabbouleh, kafta and halwa and baklawa for dessert. Being a BYO restaurant has its perks, but book before you get there as you can wait up to three months to bag a table. If you can’t wait, buy matriarch Abla Amad’s cookbook, Abla’s Lebanese Cooking, from Readings a few blocks away on Lygon Street.
