Every time I see one of my relatives in the Tysons Galleria mall she talks about us having lunch at the Lebanese Taverna. I finally gave in. The few mezzes we had were good for the mall but that does not say much! Service was pushy and annoying. Prices were a little high considering the portions.
Baba Ghanoush puréed eggplant, tahini, garlic, lemon, pomegranate
It was smoky but way too salty.
Tabouleh parsley, tomatoes, onions, mint, bulgur, lemon dressing
In the height of tomato season, what is up with the pale tomatoes? Where is the bulgur? It was mostly parsley and pale tomatoes and probably 1% bulgur.
Kibbeh stuffed beef/lamb fritters, bulgur, pine nuts, almonds, lebneh
It was a little over fried but tasted fine. The lebneh was better than the kibbeh.
Hommus Special ground beef/lamb, pine nuts
Once again this dish suffered from over salting. It was good otherwise.
