Al Halabi Restaurant

Beirut, Lebanon

Family run Al Halabi in Antelias, just north of Beirut, is one of Lebanon’s oldest restaurants. The traditional, no-frills dining room – white tablecloths, a single rose in a vase on each table – belies the kitchen team’s skill. Classic Lebanese fare is elegantly served up by suited waiters, with signature dishes including beef tartare, a garlic-free hummus and moudardara (lentils with rice and caramelised onions). Their sweets alone are worth a visit – the mhalabiye (Middle Eastern milk pudding) draws fans from miles around.
