You may have guessed by my name that I’m not 100% English. Born and bred here with an English mother and Syrian father; I was raised on a diet that included the delightful culinary offerings the Middle East has brought into this fine world. And every so often my taste buds alert my brain that I require a good fill of said home comforts and I’m drawn to Little Beirut. Situated up on Edgware Road it’s filled with shisha shops, Arab eateries and halal fast-food joints. One of particular note is Abu Zaad. Syrian in origin, it’s tasty and cheap and perfect if you’re wanting to avoid the booze. You may only know a few of the dishes but the foul mukalla, fattoush or the regular hummus are exceptional; give the cheese sambousek a whirl, taste the intriguing kibbeh mezze dish and then finish on their delightful, not to mention thrifty, range of shawarmas. Cheap, tasty and a sure-fire winner. / Firas Waez
