The food served in our Lebanese restaurant in Bucharest combines the sophistication and subtleties of European cuisines with the exotic ingredients of the Middle East and the Far East.
The similarities between most of Middle Eastern kitchens cannot be denied. Considering that the languages of the countries that surround the eastern and southern Mediterranean are predominantly Arabic, many of the dishes have the same names in the region, although they can be prepared or spiced differently. For this reason, Middle Eastern cuisine is often included in a single homogeneous category within a restaurant with a specific character in Bucharest, when indeed they can vary greatly from different points of view. This diversification is the main goal of the Lebanese restaurant Ganesha in Bucharest.
The cuisine that characterizes a Lebanese restaurant is the symbol of the Mediterranean diet. Meals from a Lebanese restaurant menu include an abundance of ingredients: starches, fruits, vegetables, fresh fish and seafood. Animal fats are easily consumed in Lebanese diet, poultry is eaten more often than red meat, and when eating red meat, it is usually lamb. Preparations from a specific menu of a Lebanese restaurant also include large amounts of garlic and olive oil.
