Bou Melhem became over the years THE address to enjoy the Lebanese cuisine in a laid back atmosphere offering an enjoyable space for the whole family.
I love the branding that is homogeneously respected in the decoration, the staff’s outfit and the menu’s design. The tarabish are just awesome!
Coming to the hospitality of the staff reflecting the Lebanese traditions, and the prompt reply to any request you might have with a smile which became rare these days.
I was happy to be invited by the restaurant management and Bridge of minds to indulge in the new new lent and light menu:
– The fish shawarma salad: with kale, edamame and a dressing that brought the flavors together, this was a hit
– The frikeh salad with grilled veggies and a dollop of sour cream on top, the frikeh was a bit overcooked, but the whole mix was homogeneously blended for a fresh taste
– The falafel salad: back to the roots as your mom would mix them: chopped lettuce, pickles, tomatoes and feta cheese all soaked with tahini dressing and crowned with fried falafel circles.
– A new way of presenting the watercress aka Bakleh in a rectangular dough, the mix enhanced with the sumac bringing out an amazing flavor for the ftiri
– And finally the crown was the fish dumplings bathing in tajin sauce, a must try!
As the tradition calls, the lunch was sealed with some fresh seasonal fruits, mhallabeyi and meghli.
I totally recommend this place!
