Al Wadi Serves Up RIchly Flavored Lebanese Food in Lovely Surroundings

SuzieCK | Jan 9, 2014 06:43 AM

Taking advantage of a $30 Groupon, three of us ventured to West Roxbury to Al Wadi to experience their Lebanese food. What we found was attentive service and richly-flavored dishes that felt like home. We began with a fresh, crunchy fattoush salad and an order of kibbe. The salad was delightful with the very thin pita toasted before being lightly dressed with a lemony dressing. Then we feasted upon the raw lamb kibbe -- so rich yet fresh and mouth-filling. We also had a lamb stew, long cooked with tomatoes and meltingly-tender green beans. Just the tiniest hint of cinnamon made this dish superb. We were too full for dessert but wishes we had more room to sample them. At the end of the evening, our total bill was just $55 and after the Groupon discount, well, it was a steal. Of course we left a proper tip based on the original total -- only correct when using a Groupon. We will definitely go back, perhaps this time with more people so we can sample even more of their expansive menu. Worth the trip.
