Thanks to relatively large Lebanese population, several Oxford restaurants in the famous university city are serving authentic cuisine from Lebanon and the wider region. Many of these eateries are family-run businesses that want to create a dining experience similar to those enjoyed in Lebanon. So whether you're visiting the many historic attractions in the city, you're a financially challenged student or a lifelong inhabitant, there's lots of fine food to try at Lebanese restaurants in Oxford.
Lebanese cuisine may not be the most popular in the UK (we all know which one that is), but more and more people are discovering just how wonderful it is. You can explore everything this cuisine has to offer by trying classic dishes at Lebanese restaurants all over Oxford. Look out for kibbeh, which is a combination of sauteed pine nuts and spiced minced meat. If you're a fan of kebabs, try the kafta. For a different type of salad, order fattoush, which is a dish of salad leaves, various vegetables and fried bread. And no visit to Lebanese restaurants in Oxford is complete unless someone orders tabbouleh — a vegetarian dish made with tomatoes, parsley, mint, onion and either bulgur or couscous. Make sure you round off a great meal with kanafeh, which is a type of sugary cheese pastry.
