It would be best if you tried baba ghanoush

If you’re going to visit a restaurant Teddington, then you must try the baba ghanoush. You may have heard of this before. It is a dip that is typically served with pita bread. For those who are looking for an alternative to hommos, then try baba ghanoush.

Know the difference between baba ghanoush and hommos

Restaurants in Teddington will typically offer both baba ghanoush and hommos. It’s important to know the difference between the two. Baba ghanoush’s main ingredient is eggplant, whereas hommos’ main ingredient is chickpeas.

Don’t forget about shish taouk

If you’re at a Lebanese restaurant Teddington, you must try their shish taouk, also known as a chicken kebab. The spices are amazing as it is marinated overnight with paprika, garlic, lemon juice, yogurt, and tomato paste.

Know your appetizers

The restaurants in Teddington will serve appetizers. If you’re looking to try the full Lebanese dining experience, you should know which appetizers you should correctly order.

Try the tahini sauce in your falafel

Another term you may have already heard in the Lebanese food community is falafel. However, this tip concerns itself with the right kind of sauce you choose to go with your falafel. Our top pick would be tahini sauce.

Pair your chawarma with tabouleh or fattoush

The key to ensuring that you enjoy your Lebanese dining experience to the fullest, you must know which food goes with what. So, if your falafel should be eaten alongside tahini sauce, then your chawarma should be eaten with tabouleh or fattoush.

Know the difference between tabouleh and fattoush

Eat chawarma with either tabouleh or fattoush. Tabouleh is a salad made of onions, tomatoes, parsley, and bulgur. It is then mixed with olive oil, salt, and lemon juice. On the other hand, fattoush is also a salad made of almost the same dressing mixture as tabouleh but uses baked or fried pita bread to crush and mix it up.

Baklawa is not Greek

Contrary to what most people believe, baklawa is not Greek. It is actually Lebanese. So, the next time you try Lebanese food with friends, feel free to share this fun fact!

Don’t forget to order arak or wine.

Last but surely not least, every Lebanese dining experience is not complete with arak or alcohol. Lebanon is known for its wine. In fact, one of the oldest sites of wine production is in Lebanon. Arak is an alcoholic drink made from anise seed and is about 63% alcohol. Plus, it’s colorless. Don’t forget to order this when you’re eating out!
