Occupying the premises that were previously home to Tom Ilic’s self-named restaurant, independently owned Dalila’s stated aim is to bring ‘proper Lebanese food’ to the streets of Battersea. The emphasis is on authenticity, with soujouk, makanek sausages and shanklish (an aged-cheese speciality) all produced on the premises. A full complement of hot-and-cold mezze includes three riffs on hoummos, as well as tabbouleh, fattoush and special falafels stuffed with mixed pickles and sesame sauce. Mains cover all the usual meaty kebabs, fish and veggies stews, with signature dishes including kastaletta (char-grilled lamb ribs), whole sea bass and slow-cooked aubergines with okra and green beans. To drink, there’s a wide-ranging list of international wines including some notable Lebanese names such as Château Kefraya, Khoury and Musar.
