The glitz and glamour of Sloane Square is evident from the moment you step out of the tube (eh, I’m not glitzy and glamorous enough to step out of a limousine, yet). Nearby Saatchi Galleries and the Duke of York Square offers a bountiful choices for a restaurant for a rare sunny day as today. Pricey, but bountiful.

Comptoir Libanais had been long on my list, especially since whenever I would visit my sister at Imperial I would go by one of the wonderfully colorful branches in South Ken (who ever said the “broken record” effect doesn’t work?). Especially given my weakness towards Middle Eastern food.
The staff was incredibly friendly and made our short stay feel welcome. The place seemed quite popular with families and small children (read: there was some shouting and yelling).
We decided only on a shared platter – snacking was all we could do at that point. Food wise the quality was decent but nothing that made me stop and take a breath (then again, with my ridiculously high standards, what does?). The hommos was a tiny bit more bitter than I would’ve liked (most likely because of too much tahini), the baba ghanuj didn’t have the smooth texture I prefer but instead had small chunks of eggplant in it. The labneh was great tho – refreshing and fresh.
