Dîner libanais II


On Tuesday I told you about Le Carré du Liban restaurant. Here is some of the food we sampled, dessert and mezzes for starters. Can you tell what they are?

Mardi je vous parlais du Carré du Liban. Voici nos mezzés en dessert et en entrée. Vous les reconnaissez ?

I can tell only that I wish I'd had a seat at this table.

Desserts, Turkish delight, Baklava, mousse and cheese cake maybe (can you tell I like desserts!) main dish, octopus tentacles, salsa maybe, not sure..but it all looks so good, hope you enjoyed Ciel.

I'm an American; where are the hamburger and BBQ?

Thanks for visiting HDP today and so regularly. You live in a beautiful place and I have enjoyed seeing it through your very artistic eyes.

I think I see some octopus, hummus and pita in the bottom photo. Clueless about the deserts in the top one.

Woody said...

I recognize tentacles and a pastry that is made with filo dough. I'm not terribly worldly in my food.

Randy said...

I would have tried everything but the Octopus. I love Hummus!

I'll take Randy's share of the octopus! Looks great to me... I love food porn

Bises,

6h45, je crois que je prefere un bon cafe avec des croissants, mais c'est beau et cela donne envie.

Cezar and Léia said...

C'est bien joliment présenté, cela fait "nouvelle cuisine", sans doute était-ce très bien pour un souper, fin et parfumé et... léger ?

VP said...

It looks interesting!

Jacob said...

I can't even guess! A very intriguing feast, however...

Kaori said...

I've had ethiopian food but never lebanon. Looks delicious! Is that a bean paste?

Thérèse said...

Beaucoup de sucre mais rien que la presentation donne envie d'y aller.
L'humus me tenterait.

Stephanie said...

Oh my goodness, it all looks SO delicious!!! Beautiful presentation.

Bergson said...

je ne reconnais rien ; je pense qu'il vaut mieux que tu m'invites !!

Magpie said...

Except for the very obvious octopus, I'm at a loss. I hope you enjoyed yourself and time with friends.

T. Becque said...

Is that a type of salsa in the bottom photo? Looks like our Mexcian salsa here. I see the tentacles. As much as I like to travel, I'm not very adventerous in my eating. :(

Halcyon said...

Looks delicious!!! I may need to have a night out tonight. :)

Rob and Mandy said...

Halva, turkish delights (rahat loukoum0, some octopus, humus, euh..... I know I had all of it at some stage, but to name it...

EG Wow said...

Looks tasty! I'm afraid I'm not a sophisticated eater. I eat what tastes good to me so I'd likely sample everything here. :)

Gunn said...

Lppks nice, both the food and the images.

Suzanne said...

So yum, really so yum.

Dina said...

The octopus would scare me away.

Francisca said...

The challenge is to see your photos and remember the foods! I don't know the Lebanese names for them, but I think I saw Turkish delights, halvah, baklava and other almond pastries, custard, humus, octopus, tomato salad (?)... I'll eat any of those, but can live without the octopus... too rubbery. Had the best baklava ever at a Turkish restaurant in Constanta last week... yum! How'd I do? LOL!

Between Rob and Mandy and Francisca, I think we've covered everything... ;-)

The octopus was deeeelicious!
