Warda has been carrying Saigon’s middle eastern food torch for a while now (ignoring the dodgy looking kebab vendors in Pham Ngu Lao) so new Lebanese restaurant Byblos is a refreshing arrival. I love Lebanese food (I lived around the corner from a Lebanese sweet shop in Sydney and miss it alot!) so happily I can now get my fix here.
So far I’ve tried Byblos’ chicken shwarma roll that was not only enormous but served with fries, garlic sauce and salad – almost too much for one person. At 75,000 dong (just over US$4) it was great value too. I definitely want to try more of the dishes and their shisha lounge next time. And of course, the sweets!
