Celebratory Ramadan feast by Comptoir Libanais
To celebrate Ramadan, Comptoir Libanais have created a perfect sharing menu for guests from 15 May to 14 June.
To spread love and awareness about what Ramadan is and to cultivate the inclusivity that is at heart of the festival, Tony Kitous and the team at Comptoir Libanais have together a special menu.
For Tony Kitous, the founder, Ramadan is a hugely special time in his culture. It is a time for families and friends to come together and enjoying breaking the fast, celebrating their culture and being thankful for what they have.
This menu, based on traditional recipes cooked by mothers across the Middle East and North Africa during Ramadan, will be available from 6pm at £24.95pp.
Start with something light to break the fast, consider the refreshing yogurt and honey drink to get the tummy rumbling.
The starter takes mezze form – the perfect way to try every dish. Try the soup of the day or lamb harira (a traditional North African soup made with tender pieces of lamb and chickpeas and spiced with chilli and cumin) or the fattoush salad. There is also their favourite toasted pitta and hommos or Samboussek (bite-sized pastries filled with feta and halloumi) and delicious beetroot labneh to start breaking your fast.
For the main course, you have four delicious options. Firstly, a mixed grill consisting of lamb kofta, chicken kofta and chicken shish taouk cooked on a hot grill and served with vermicelli rice and salad. If that doesn’t take our fancy, why not order the chicken and grilled olive tagine or the fattet kibbeh (minced lamb and bulghar wheat parcels) and if you are a vegetarian, the most delicious moussaka is the perfect option for you.
Finish your feast – if you can squeeze it in – with a delicious desert. Enjoy mouhalabia, a traditional Lebanese milk pudding, or the most moreish baklawa – the ultimate treat for that sweet tooth.
Enjoy this delicious and colourful menu with family and friends at the Square at a table overlooking the piazza. Soak up the atmosphere and have a wonderful summer’s evening. To book your table or find out more info, visit Comptoir Libanais here.
