Yasmina’s specializes in fresh, authentic Lebanese cuisine. Choose from a colourful parade of traditional hot and cold appetisers (a sacred pillar of the Lebanese gastronomic experience), most notably: creamy, hand-made hummus, smoky moutabal prepared with fire-roasted aubergines, samkeh harra (this version of the classic spiced fish dish is dressed with a piquante tomato sauce and sprinkle golden, crispy onions ribbons), fragrant and refreshing fattoush and tabbouleh salads, batata harra (spicy potato cubes with a pungent smear of minced garlic), beautifully textured, mouth-watering kibbeh stuffed with ground lamb and whole pine nuts and makanek (tasty, moreish morsels of handmade baby lamb sausages).
The charcoal grill has a wide selection of perfectly grilled meats, fish and seafood. We loved the succulent lamb chops and garlicky lamb and chicken kafta kebab. Finish your meal with an espresso and any one of the authentic homemade Lebanese desserts. Our favourites include: mougalhi (off menu) a gently sweetened, nutty wheat pudding spiced with cinnamon, a delicate, super rich riz bi halib (rice pudding served with an avalanche of crushed pistachios), osmaliyeh (riz bi halib topped with an elegant halo of nest pastry) and a decadent layered Lebanese custard with a thin biscuit layer. Alhough the wine list is limited, it offers some interesting choices, including Lebanese imports. The service is swift, attentive and knowledgeable, with an ambiance that is elegant but not pretentious.
It is located in Marina Mall near the airport and has 130 covers in a large, modern and rather opulent room. Proof that Marina Mall is becoming a key shopping and eating destination in Accra.
