Miami Restaurant Guide

A searchable directory of recommended local restaurants


This Middle Eastern/Mediterranean restaurant offers many familiar items (hummus, baba ghannouj, kebabs) but also more unusual, specifically Lebanese, specialties from the chef/owners' home country. Especially recommended are muhamarah (red pepper, walnut, chili, and olive oil dip), shanklish (fresh cheese balls with thyme), Al Rahib salad (a chunky smoked eggplant salad with garlic), and tasty pita wrap sandwiches stuffed with Lebanon's favorite sausages, mild but savory Makanik or hot Sujik.
