Lebanese Brunch in Paris
Today I had the chance to try out a new type of cuisine: Lebanese! I was invited to try the Lebanese restaurant Liza here in Paris. To be honest I am not a huge fan of Parisian brunches because they don't really stack up to what I've experienced in California. I always found them over priced and the food mediocre at best. So I really had no idea what to expect for a Lebanese brunch, but boy it did not disappoint in the slightest. I was very pleasantly surprised!
The decoration is simple with a middle eastern flare and the space itself is open and airy. The brunch is buffet style with so many choices that you are definitely going to walk away satisfied.
As we sat at the table there was already orange juice, grape fruit juice, a selection of teas and coffee. For my main dish I chose a plate full of falafel, humus, salad, and lentil and rice pilaf with fried onions, while Lambert had some lamb and rice along with the manakish and sfeeha (I hope I got those names right, but they were a seasoned bread and a meat pie type dish) which he really loved. The food was extremely fresh and flavorful.. needless to say we both went back for seconds..
On to dessert (aka my favorite part of any meal) there was a chocolate mousse that was so rich it was to die for, fresh fruit, baklava, a flan and a crème de lait. I tried a bunch of the desserts and ohhhhh my gosh so good.
We were really impressed by Liza and will definitely be going back.. plus the manager told us that during dinner they have live music which sounds really fun. Without a doubt I would highly recommend you swing by Liza for a brunch in Paris that is actually worth the price :)
