126m - Great food at a more than fair price, Al Mayass is a restaurant for all...
A Lebanese restaurant with a Mexican flare - inspired by the great Mexican artist - in a maginficent Lebanese building from the first half of the 20th century.
Mexican Lebanese fusion cuisine at its finest in one of Ashrafieh's most beautiful buildings, this restaurant is a real gem. The setting is simple and beautiful, the selection of lampshades and the lighting they produce are a real pleasure, the service is great, the music a decent mix of Lebanese Latin American tunes and the occasional live performance, all serve to frame a great dining experience.
This fine eatery combines Lebanese and Mexican dishes to produce tasty, interesting and often surprising combinations of deliciousness. Lebanese ingredients (Hommos and Summac) are fused with Mexican ingredients (Jalapenos, lime and avocado) and sauces such as guacomale, and Tomato Salsa to take guest on an interesting journey of discovery. Dishes that every Lebanese knows turned Mexican. Mexican Halloumi, Makanek with Jalapenos, or Markouk Frida are only a couple of the surprises that are complemented by more traditional dishes, such as Mexican Fish or Chicken Taouk to make a truly interesting menu.
The drinks are also a pleasure. The sangria is a hit but the margaritas are special. Mexican style the Chilli, Cinnamon or Mango margarita remain classical, Jellab, Watermelon or even Chocolate Margarita are tasty Lebanese adaptations.
The added bonus is that all this comes at very decent prices so that you are looking at a guaranteed excellent food experience.
