Since 2009, Beirut Grill has earned a strong following among locals and tourists alike with its delicious food and vibrant dining experience. With a view of Sultan Mosque’s golden dome, Arabic music, and the all-round buzz of Bussorah Street, you could believe that you were at a grand bazaar in Lebanon. Colourful lanterns and tables spilling out onto the street add to the casual vibe.
A meal here is all about soaking in the atmosphere while enjoying authentic Lebanese dips and char-grilled kebabs, all of which boast quality ingredients brought in from the finest shops of Beirut. The menu is extensive with grilled meat options being a highlight. For a taste of the best, go with the mix grill kebab featuring skewers of shish taouk (succulent bites of grilled chicken), aromatic lamb kebab kofta (grilled, spiced lamb mince), beef kebab (tender, char-grilled cubes of steak), and signature lamb chops. The lamb chops are a favourite with the grilled meat being well cooked yet extremely juicy, and packing a punch with its spicy marinade. Order some dips to share such as moutabbal, a delightfully smoky, meaty chargrilled eggplant dip with sesame, muhammara, a spicy red pepper purée, or their well-loved hummus, offered in a variety of flavours. Pair them well with freshly baked pita bread and a chilled glass of Lebanese wine.
Bussorah Street really comes alive on weekends. Fridays and Saturdays are when you will find belly dancers and singers, clinking glasses and loud, happy voices.
