Fresh, simple, delicious food in the heart of the West End
I love simple food done well, so I was pleased to pop by Lazeez Lebanese Tapas to sample a selection of Lebanese delights. Located only a stone's throw away from iconic Selfridges, it's the perfect place to drop in for a quick and tasty morsel after a long day of shopping.
'Lazeez', which means 'tasty' in four languages, specialises in Lebanese sharing dishes. From chicken or lamb shawarma to falalfal platters to wraps with falafel, halloumi and chicken or Lebanese-style burgers, you'll find it all here. Other favourites such as hummus and babaganoush, are made fresh on-site.
Lazeez always uses fresh ingredients in their cooking, many of which are sourced from Lebanon.
All meat is cooked over a charcoal grill and sprinkled with herbs, to give it a natural taste and flavour.
During my visit, I enjoyed the Lazeez Tapas Sharing Platter (see pics above), which included delicious hummous, chicken and lamb shawarma, falafal, olives and bread.
Post dinner you can enjoy Lebanese-inspired cocktails made using ingredients such as fresh mint, lime, lemon and arak, or if cocktails aren't your thing, you can indulge in the indoor shisha pipe.
Owner and operations manager of Lazeez, Emilio Malik, who has plans to expand the brand this year, said, 'The main ingredient in our food is passion. We want to encourage people to take the time to slow down, switch off and enjoy what they eat." If you ask us, that's what life's all about.
