Comptoir Libanais

Last weekend, E and I had worked up quite an appetite after tackling a rather large wardrobe from Ikea. It was quite the task, what with tipping the bed on its side to make room for building the frame, coming up with a makeshift hammer so that we could both be at it at the same time, etc. All good fun (kind of..).

Anyway, we decided that we were definitely deserving of an evening out for some good food relaxation after all that, so we set out for a little date night. First, we stopped by The Sampler to try out some new-in wines as we had leftover credit on our card (read my post about this lovely wine tasting place here), and then we ventured in for dinner at Comptoir Libanais just around the corner.

I had come across a couple of their restaurants in London and heard good things, but never tried it myself. It's a no-book restaurant, but we went in around 8pm on Saturday night and we got seats right away.

The atmosphere was casual, lively and busy, and we got immediately stuck into our colourful menus.

We chose simply - one main each. Minced chicken wrap platter for her, lamb burger for him.

The food was so good. So so good. Nothing fancy, but everything was fresh and flavourful - I loved the wrap, the hummus was perfect, and actually the side salad was seriously delicious with the pickled vegetables.

I think that they do take away as well, which is a good option if you're on the go but want something other than a boring sandwich.

We did have a look at the dessert menu, but this time we chose to walk around and get dessert elsewhere. South Kensington station is surrounded by great looking cafΓ©s and restaurants these days, so you're spoilt for choice if you're in the area.

In any case, Comptoir Libanais got four thumbs up from us!
