middle eastern munch
1 Green’s Court
Beirut street food is the style of this hidden away little eatery, but it falls comfortably in the middle eastern category that covers a number of countries who, while fucking hating each other in real life, have culinary habits which are very much in tune. Wraps dominate, and would normally make me classify this spot as take out , however my personal preference is to go with the quite spenny meze dishes [although if you are in a rush, the wraps are really yum too]. They also sell flavoured shisha, and give you free olives, jalapenos and pickles on arrival which is always a great perk.
VERDICT – This is a great place for lunch, I am not sure about dinner as the vibe is quite day time. Delicious for a light bite, but once again we find ourselves in the tricky situation of not being completely filled up unless you spend a respectable amount. Should you wish to forgo the delights of a meze meal, then you can order a wrap with houmous for £6.50 which is a very good deal, for a very filling meal!
SURROUNDINGS – Simple yet evocative of the origins of the food, with wooden furniture, warm yellow walls and vintage cover cushions. The food comes on nice, dark terracotta plates, pitta in woven baskets. Big vats of olives sit behind the bar, along with displayed wraps and breads. Comfortable and stylish, the environment marries perfectly with the food giving the space a well balanced harmony which is enjoyable even when it is heaving with people.
