TATLER TIPS

An ex­ten­sive menu awaits the in­trepid din­ner at Al-amar. Take your pick from the likes of cold and hot mezzes, tra­di­tional Le­banese sal­ads, shawarma plat­ters and grill spe­cial­i­ties.

Two choice starts: pip­ing hot falafel with rich tahini sauce and hom­mos Beiruti, a spiced-up riff on the ba­sic hom­mos with the ad­di­tion of toma­toes, spring onions and chilli. Apart from the tra­di­tion­ally pop­u­lar grill items, try the mixed shawarma plat­ter of beef and chicken, with ten­der spicy por­tions of meat sliced thinly. The wine list is fairly con­cise, but wine lovers should be pleased to spot hard-to-find Le­banese la­bels such as the cel­e­brated Chateau Musar.
