Zizo - A Review ‪#‎sikandalouscuisine‬

Zizo - A Review ‪#‎sikandalouscuisine‬

Zizo really needs no introduction , it's is all about good comfort food - food that you would eat in a Lebanese home , and now with modern times , some dishes with a twist ! Danny Elsoury assured me his grandmother fully approved of the few ' liberties ' he had taken with an otherwise authentic menu where French and Turkish influences play a role due to historic influences . He mentions with pride that they only use the highest grade Lebanese organic ingredients like pomegranate molasses ,Zaatar, Summac to keep flavors authentic.

We started with satisfying Cold Mezze Platter -Fattoush Salad ,Traditional Hummus ,Llabneh and assorted pickles etc which was followed by an equally delicious Spicy Moutabbal - Broiled eggplant with lemon juice and tahini etc. Outstanding foul mudammas which is traditionally served for breakfast made with Fava Beans, one of the oldest domesticated food legumes, was simmered with tomatoes and Garlic and chili oil hit all the right spots.

Duo of Chicken and Mutton Kibbi with 7 spices was excellent . Chicken Wings in a Garlic Lemon Butter zesty and full of flavors . The big winner was the Mixed Grill Platter of Chicken and Lamb Kafta and Chicken Taouk. Mini Bites - Their take on Pizza didn't work for me though
open flat bread topped with Zaatar and Ilive Oil was yum.

Zizo is all about delicious comfort food - great energy, good flavors and a wholesome experience at very pocket friendly prices . Oh yes , vegetarians for once wont feel shortchanged here !
