Byblos, or as it is rendered at this London Lebanese restaurant, Byblous (it is also called Jbeil in Arabic), is by some accounts the world’s oldest continuously inhabited city. London’s fairly venerable, too, and somehow Byblous Harbour’s location down Millwall’s Millharbour, on the historic Isle of Dogs, is a resonant and fitting place to situate a homage to ancient Lebanese cuisine. And what a homage it is. Byblous Harbour’s passionate proprietors are seriously knowledgeable about the culture and history of their beloved Lebanon; this goes for the food too, of course, and we encourage diners to ask the friendly staff for a rundown on their spectacular offering.
Besides boasting peerless knowledge when it comes to Lebanese culinary traditions, the Isle of Dogs’ Byblous Harbour is fully aware of the craze for Middle Eastern meze that is sweeping the globe (much like Spanish tapas, and Italian antipasti before it). And they know why meze are popular among London diners – they are perfect for sharing, for a start, pun fully intended (sharing among friends and family is the Lebanese way). And they represent the perfect opportunity to sample a range of the region’s diverse dishes. Ordering up a meze is obligatory when you eat at this Lebanese restaurant on Millwall’s Millharbour.
Byblous Harbour’s inestimable contribution to London’s Lebanese dining scene runs the gamut of this Middle Eastern nation’s cuisine. Naturally healthy, no dinner at this Millharbour restaurant goes without ample amounts of garlic and olive oil. True to form, Byblous Harbour’s carnivorous dishes emphasise seafood and poultry, with a smattering of red meat options (usually lamb). Fresh is always best, and with Lebanese cuisine there’s plenty of unadulterated goodness in every meal. Fresh fruit, vegetables, and starches typical of the Levant – bulghur predominates – come together with eastern spices to create unforgettable flavour profiles at this Isle of Dogs embassy of Lebanese food. A great location in Millwall rounds off the experience.
