Eating in a Lebanese restaurant was a first for me. It was recommended by a friend. I immediately liked the décor of a Bedouin tent, which gave the restaurant a special feel about it. On arrival we were greeted by a friendly waiter and our drinks arrived very rapidly.
The menu was fairly extensive and so I chose things from the menu, rather than the set lunch. What I hadn’t realised was the helpings were very generous and far too much for my appetite. I started with spinach in pastry. The taste was good, but the pastry was rather tough. My main course was enormous. It consisted of grilled chicken with rice, potatoes and salad. I could only eat half of it. I thoroughly enjoyed this course. I also thought that it was very good value for money. For my dessert I chose a Baklava, which is something I particularly like and make at home. However, this was the course that I least enjoyed and did not live up to expectations.
After my initiation into Lebanese cuisine, I would certainly consider returning to La Bekaa, but another time, would only order half the amount of food I had during my first visit.
