Ground cumin, crushed garlic, thick tahini, chopped parsley, minted yoghurt, fried eggplant and freshly cooked flat bread drizzled with olive oil - if these are the flavours and scents that amplify the rumble in your stomach then Minzaman is the ideal destination. With belly dancers, mosaic mirrors, and an upstairs cushion room, this place takes its exploration of Lebanese and Middle Eastern cuisines to the next level. Recipes move way beyond a basic felafel with a healthful spread perfect for vegetarians and meat lovers alike. Indulge in homemade dips, Lebanese rice pilaf with roast almonds, pine nuts and mince beef, and sweetmeats like syrupy homemade baklava or ghoroyebah (shortbread biscuits smothered in rose-water scented icing sugar). The cuisine extends from the basic (traditional Lebanese kebabs of chargrilled lamb served with garden salad) to the decadent - with exotic seafood and tailored banquet menus. After dinner, enjoy a shisha water pipe with fragrant, fruity flavoured tobacco.
