Then look no further than inside Auburn Central, where you will find newly-opened Bistro Tripoli serving up the tastiest Lebanese cuisine you can imagine laced with the flavours of the ancient Middle East.
Meals are made to order with high quality, daily fresh ingredients and are affordably priced.
Owner Sam Kanawati says locals have been telling him that his falafels – which he makes from scratch every day – are the best they’ve eaten.
“In fact, I’ve had so much great feedback from customers about everything,” he said.
“Once a customer visits, we know they’ll be back and usually with a friend or family member.
“We give them the food they are craving just like their grandmothers used to make.”
For breakfast, indulge in a triple cheese pie, egg roll, labneh roll, Soguk and cheese, Zatar and cheese or meat and cheese plus more.
For lunch, there’s shawarma, Shish tawook wrap, chicken liver wrap, Kafta wrap, Sojuk wrap, Baba Ganoush, tabouli, fried Kibbeh, hot chips, lamb wrap or mixed plates.
You might prefer a lunch box with delicious combos available.
There’s a chicken or Kafta box with three skewers, garlic, tabouli, bread and chips for $20 or a lamb box for $24, a falafel box with six pieces, tabouli, hommus, Baba Ganoush and bread for $12, or a chicken schnitzel or grilled chicken box with chips, salad and drink for $14.50.
You can also pick up a calamari or a fish cocktail box for $9 or six chicken nuggets for $5.50.
“I also offer the full range of Italian pizzas, from Meat Lovers and Supreme to Hot & Spicy and Margherita plus burgers, such as the delicious Bistro Tripoli Special, peri peri beef or chicken and Kafta burgers,” Sam said.
