Ilili, Part Deux!

February 13, 2010

As you may recall, one of my resolutions for 2010 was to eat at Ilili. Well, I took care of that recently đŸ˜‰ Mark, a server there, had come across my blog thanks to a trusty Google Alert he’d set for “Ilili” and posted a comment and the rest is history–and quite a tasty one at that!

Ordering from the “Lunch a la Carte” menu, I started with the Baba Ghannouj (Delish!) then moved on to what I’d been waiting a long time to have again: Kibbeh Naya (Absolutely heavenly!). That was more than enough to fill me up but, as always, I saved room for some dessert and coffee, the dessert being Actha (OMG, so satisfying!). I must say, the textures and flavors and scents of all the menu items were impeccable as was the service, so that leaves me only once choice–to go back again, bien sur!

In the meantime, you should know that starting on Monday, February 15 will be the last week of Ilili’s “A Taste of Lebanon’s Wine Country,” and this time around they’ll be featuring complimentary tastings of wine from Chateau Ksara. Trust me, you won’t be disappointed đŸ˜‰

‘Til the next time, Happy Valentine’s Day weekend and Chinese New Year!

Tabouli wishes and fattouche dreams,
