Wholesome Lebanese food, created by chef and founder Tony Kitous, is available at the newly opened branch of Comptoir Libanais on Soho’s Poland Street.
The restaurant, with its souk-like setting, is also offering grab-and-go meals and a shop selling Lebanese foodie gifts, hand-crafted accessories, spices and sweets. The Comptoir Libanais Souk Shop takes its inspiration from the vibrant marketplaces of the Middle East.
The food at Comptoir Libanais stays true to this tradition, with mezze, salads, dips, soup and warm wraps as well as a selection of pastries and freshly prepared breads.
Chicken wings from the hot mezze menu cost £5.25, a mixed grill plate £13.25, and moussakhan (a roasted half chicken marinated in pomegranate molasses and cinnamon), one of the chef’s specials, is priced at £10.95.
