Baalbak Mediterranean and Lebanese Food

9/25 Junction Rd, Morningside Qld

There’s something to be said for sometimes overriding your instinct to order old favourites and asking for a mixed plate, and the components of the Vegetarian Platter at the Baalbak certainly make for a more varied meal than one you would have chosen for yourself. On the might we visited it contained hommos (how many ways are there of transliterating this word?), tabouli (opinions around the table were divided as to whether it could have used more lemon), a moussaka in which the flavours of the potatoes, aubergine, tomato and herbs mingled superbly, a mujadara of lentils and onions, a loubya bi zayt of green beans with tomatoes (more peppery than it sometimes is) and a solitary piece of falafel. We also enjoyed vine leaves and a delicious bowl of fattouch, with beautifully contrasting flavours and textures. The menu, which currently includes a number of Western dishes, is likely to change before long, and it will be interesting to see in what direction the competent cooks at the Baalbak take it.
