Atlantis Welcomes Joe Barza at Levantine Restaurant
This week, we are welcoming the well-known Chef Joe Barza to Levantine Restaurant for a very special Lebanese culinary experience from 20-23 June. It will be a must for everyone to come and taste authentic Arabic cuisine and specialties, whilst enjoying the suave moves of the belly dancer, or a performance by Marwan Daoud during Lebanese Nights on Thursday and Friday.
A wide-ranging menu featuring Arabian delicacies and many more vegetarian and non-vegetarian delights will leave you amazed with the sophistication of Lebanese cuisine. Dishes include:
- Basterma Wrap with Tomato Puree – spiced and fragrant air-dried beef, mellowed by adding Lebanese yoghurt, rocket leaves and tomato confit
- Frikeh with Lamb – roasted green wheat made into a contemporary organic dish with lamb
- Fish Moghrabieh with Saffron – a twist on the traditional dish, the moghrabieh is served with fish and infused with Saffron to give it a distinguished taste and a rich yellow colour
For those with a sweet tooth, Chef Joe Barza has once again transformed the ordinary into extraordinary, with treats like Osmalieh Tatin (a marriage between two culinary cultures by combining Osmalieh, a key ingredient in oriental sweets and pommetatin, the infamous caramelized apple French dessert).
