Megalomaniac: 7 years, 7 months ago – Link & Share

Mother, wife and above all exuberant chef, Abla Amad has strived to serve authentic Lebanese cuisine for over 25 years, giving Melbournians the opportunity to become familiar with the dishes of Ksaryachit, her hometown while fostering an understanding of how uniquely different Lebanese food is from its neighbouring counterparts. Having come to Australia on holiday as a teenager in the 50?s, she fell in love and settled Down Under, opening her restaurant as a tribute and testimony to her homeland and the food of her childhood. Abla?s encapsulates more than Lebanese cuisine at its finest, showcasing a period of gastronomic history, an era of culinary genius (safeguarded through generations), treasured traditions and the honesty of scrumptious fare served unpretentiously. The apron-clad female staff (presumably family members) patiently provide insight into the menu as well as recommendations is definitely a hallmark of Abla?s. And of course, Abla herself ensures the meal has been a pleasurable experience, leaving you content with the satisfaction of that personal touch. Muted lighting, white tablecloths, and fuss free silverware provide a simple setting creating a relaxing feel while setting the mood reminiscent of a home cooked meal. My only grievance is that the chairs were perhaps rather upright. But, where the restaurant lacks in sophistication, it makes up in the grand offering of an enthralling Lebanese spread prepared from quality ingredients. Entrees are priced at $10, mains at $17, making the banquet priced at $40 per head the best bet, enabling the ultimate feast comprising several decadent courses that come together in unison, infused with copious amounts of pine nuts, almonds, cashew nuts and slow cooked meats, seasoned with a symphony of spices.
