SquareMeal Review of
Comptoir Libanais Soho
It’s impossible to pass a branch of trendy Comptoir Libanais with its kitschy murals, cheery enamel stools & food-laden counters without peering in – & once you’ve done that, resistance is
futile. You order with your eyes here, as most of the Lebanese deli-style menu is on display. Assembling a lunch or dinner to share with friends is great fun. Choose from mezze, flatbreads,
tagines, wraps, salads, pastries, cakes & more. Pumpkin kibbeh, crunchy fattoush & chicken kofta wraps are perennial favourites, washed down with homemade lemonade or fresh mint tea. Other
cool goodies include Chiclets gum & strawberry Fanta that well-travelled backpackers will know from the Middle East – though jars of harissa or pomegranate molasses from the deli are probably
better for you.
