Located a stone’s throw away from Hyde Park and Marble Arch, Maroush is a sort of institution among the Lebanese community which populate the plethora of Middle East restaurants, shisha cafes and Arabic-themed premises lined up along Edgware Road.
Order a full body red Lebanese wine, skip the mains and focus on the excellent selection of hot and cold Meze: more than just starters, these sort of large tapas are guaranteeing you a pretty complete Levantine cuisine experience.
Order as many as you wish, they will quickly land on your table creating a colourful, inviting composition.
Worth a mention the Hommos Shawarma (Hummus topped with sliced marinated lamb), the homemade Falafel served with tahine sauce, the Jawaneh (Charcoal-grilled marinated chicken wings served with a delicate garlic sauce) and the Soujok (Home-made Lebanese spicy sausages, sautéed in lemon). Every dish is different, particular and tasty.
Stop ordering once you are stuffed but save some room for at least a portion of traditional Lebanese baklawa filled with nuts and syrup, to be accompanied by a few sips of mint tea or Lebanese coffe.
