For Middle East Cuisine options, Lebanese restaurants in Northcote are some of the best options in Melbourne. In Northcote itself and surrounding suburbs, Middle East cuisine has established its own regional tastes, providing another culinary dimension to the city’s character! If you like seared lamb on a vertical roasting spit or perfectly mixed hummus with pita bread… well keep reading.
Lebanese cooking focuses around a few key ingredients: chickpeas (ground for falafel and hummus), tahini (roasted sesame seeds), pita bread, lamb, garlic, and zesty lemon. Important fresh veggies include produce like tomatoes and aromatics like parsley or mint.
Soaked in olive oil and enriched with lemon zest, Lebanese dishes combine the flavors above into a variety of dishes that are vertically roasted, grilled, baked, or fried. Depending on how you like the consistency and texture of your food, consider the cooking method before jumping in!
QIKI Cuisine would recommend you find a blend of hummus you like, and you find a Lebanese restaurant near Northcote that marries the flavors together in proper portions with balanced flavor. Consider Lebanese food Mediterranean-flavored with a smoky, flavorful Middle Eastern twist! The chickpeas and tahini bring a flavor profile to the dishes you may have never experienced before. Final note- chickpeas are amazing and also called garbanzo beans… we at QIKI Cuisine love garbanzo beans. Long live the legumes.
