Tarbouche Mezza Bar
Fish Lane's latest addition serves up shawarma beef and chicken towers, baklawa and Arabic coffee espresso martinis.
For the past five years, Little Beirut has served up Lebanese dishes in Indooroopilly, and built up quite a culinary following in the process. Now, the team behind the popular westside spot has branched out by opening a second venue: Tarbouche Mezza Bar, which has set up shop in Fish Lane in West End.
Once again, Lebanese cuisine is the focus. Here, you'll tuck into baba ghanouj and labneh, and also falafels and halloumi salad — or, if you'd prefer something warm, there's pumpkin kibbeh, moussaka or sujuk. The venue boasts a traditional saj grill for charring its flatbreads, too, while the mains selection soans kafta platters, shish tawook (aka chicken skewers), lamb cutlets and vegetarian plates.
The big drawcard: shawarma. Both beef and chicken are available — and both come in towers. Wondering what a shawarma towers entails? A sizeable amount of meat, in a serving designed to share, as paired with either fattoush salad, pickled turnip, sumac onion and parsley salad, tahini and chips (with the beef) or coleslaw, garlic sauce, pickled cucumber and turnip, and chips (with the chicken).
Dessert-wise, baklawa, namoura (a syrup-soaked semolina cake) and rize bil halib (rice pudding) will help you cap off your meal — or you can wash it all down with an Arabic coffee espresso martini.
