If you're a fan of venturing off of the beaten track, then you'll know that sometimes, you don't actually have to journey all that far to discover something different. Take Indooroopilly's latest bistro, Little Beirut, for example. You might be accustomed to tending to your eating and drinking needs on the shopping centre side of the train line; however this new place awaits if you cross the tracks (using the appropriate tunnels and walkways, of course).
Nestled into Lambert Street just a stone's throw away from the station, this newcomer wants to whisk you away to Lebanon — or make you feel like that's the case, even if you're still physically located in Brisbane. Share plates and platters, cocktails, shisha: you'll find them all here.
Yes, the Little Beirut Signature Cocktail just screams "drink me!' — and who doesn't want to try the beverage the house recommends? Then, pick your way through three types of dips, eight vegetarian and four meat mezze options, a couple of salads, a choice of eight platters, three kebabs and/or two desserts. Smokey baba ghanouji, pan-fried felafel, stuffed meshi maloof (aka cabbage rolls), zesty tabouli and shawarma all feature, as does kanafeh, the restaurant's specialty cheese dessert soaked in sugar syrup.
