My husband, a friend and I visited the new "ya hala" Lebanese Restaurant, Randwick, Sydney, last Friday night. Such a great restaurant- great food, good service, and a nice friendly atmosphere.
The food is very fresh, served beautifully, and you can tell that it is cooked to order- rather than cooked in big batches.
I am a huge fan of lady fingers (lamb mince and pine nuts rolled into pastry, then fried- yeah not so healthy, but they taste oh so good!)- and the ones served here are divine!
The tabouli is very fresh- and just right, the shish kebabs are cooked just right.
If my hubbie and I ever wanted Lebanese, we always had to go to Surry Hills, in Cleveland Street, for anything worthwhile. Now we are so happy, as this place, I think, is better then what Surry Hills has to offer, and it is in our beloved East Sydney!
Next time, I am looking forward to trying the baklawa!
