Lardbutty restaurant: Yalla Yalla – Beirut street food

A tiny restaurant packed with style and intrigue, Yalla Yalla serves excellent middle eastern food and drinks. There was a laid-back, café atmosphere on my visit this lunch time; with old photos of Beirut on the walls and other Lebanese memorabilia giving it a homely feel.

Arriving early, we were fortunate enough to get a table before they were all taken, while a continuous stream of customers settled on take-aways (you can only reserve a table for parties of 10+).

We shared tabboulé (chopped parsley, mint, spring onion,tomato, olive oil, lemon juice and cracked wheat salad), soujoc (homemade spicy lebanese sausages with tomato, parsley and lemon juice) and felafel wraps, and a Bekaa Valley sauvignon blanc, all of which were fabulous.

Intriguing interior, excellent food, great value. A must-try.
