Lebanese food opens your palate to a world of fascinating flavours that get better with each bite, fusing spicy Arabic flavours with the colours and textures of Mediterranean cuisine. If you have never tried Lebanese cuisine, try it! You’ll love it as it is similar to Indian cuisine, and both use the same spices.
Lebanon’s climate, geography, and surrounding influences have all contributed to a cuisine rich in fresh vegetables, succulent meat, and potent spices and juices that line the eastern coast of the Mediterranean Sea. It’s not surprising that Delhi, a city known for its rich multi-cuisine culture, has some fantastic Lebanese food to offer, so here is a list of the best places to indulge!
The hep and casual décor of Zizo, a destination for Lebanese cuisine in the city that surprisingly lets out an extremely calming effect due to its homely touch, will charm you from the moment you walk in. They have a live kitchen downstairs, and the upstairs appears to be more of a café that transports you to Lebanon through its walls, lined with landscape pictures and books with authentic recipes from the country.
Their must-try dishes: Spicy Hummus, Strawberry Lemonade, Chicken Shawarma Roll, Falafels, and Chocolate Banana Man’oushe, are all delicious!
