Taste of Lebanon

The tiny, no-frills Middle Eastern spot serves excellent versions of the classics. The lentil soup has an addictive peppery flavor, and it threatens to fill you up. But leave room for the creamy baba ghanoush and hummus, and especially for the lamb kebab wrap, a thin pita stuffed with full-flavored ground-lamb patty, parsley and tahini. Remember to bring cash, since you won't want to leave without a piece of sweet baklava.

3 words: RED. LENTIL. SOUP. Taste of Lebanon is one of Andersonville's gems both for the quality of food as well as the price. It's a cash only joint so don't forget to swing by the atm. Seriously, the soup will cure any physical or emotional ailments and you'll be in and out within 10 minutes. Service is friendly and efficient!

This place rocks. The staff is super friendly and the food is consistently amazing. I can't help myself but grab lunch here at least once a week. As Laura mentioned below, the falafel wrap is delicious and only $3 ($3.80 with hummus).

Taste of Lebanon is a great little spot for authentic Mediterranean food in the heart of Andersonville. Service is quick and pleasant. Get the falafel wrap!

I lived in Lebanon for a looooong time and, so far, Taste of Lebanon is one of the few Chicago restaurants I found to have food anywhere near the type and quality of the real thing.
