Goa has some of the finest cuisine in the world. And, we aren’t referring only to Goan food! From Japanese to Russian to Armenian, dishes from several parts of the world can be savoured in Goa, too. One of the world’s most-loved cuisines is Middle Eastern, and it’s available in Goa, as well.
To savour the flavours of Lebanon, Amir Alkai, presents Wala Atyab on Saturday, April 23, 2022 at the pop-up space, Kashmash (opened by Fahd Shah), in Siolim. On the menu will be an array of cold and hot mezze. Mezze refers to “entrée” ie a selection of small dishes, brought out in groups of 4 or 5 at a time, and is popular in the Mediterranean and the Middle East.
In true Lebanese style, it’s not just dinner, it’s a celebration designed to impart an experience for foodies with vegetarian and non-vegetarian fare. Take your time with every dish. Dunk freshly-cooked bread into cool and creamy dips, nibble on the hot and chunky mezze, and relax over complimentary cocktails that pair perfectly with the cuisine.
Check out the selection of cold and hot mezze, followed by barbequed fire-licked kebabs and koftas that will be on offer at ‘Wala Atyab’:
