Lebanese food with a bunch of foreigners

The luxury of being able to choose almost any type of cuisine for a night out in London might be something we take for granted. I am very much aware of this when I visit other cities – London really spoils us rotten with choice.
I had a friend from Italy visit me over the last two days, and last night we decided to go to my local Lebanese restaurant. (Mes Amis, 1 Rainville Road, Fulham, W6 9HA, Tel 020 7385 5155).
It’s a fantastically small restaurant – no more than 8 tables – and it’s actually part of the guys house. (You walk through his living room to get to the bathrooms.) He’s got a very limited menu, mainly either a lamb, chicken or vegetarian dish but it’s the platters of starters that will really get the tastebuds going. Very nice indeed. It even impressed my Italian friend, which says a lot.
And there we were – 7 in total, comprising of South African, German, Italian, English and Hungarian nationalities. Which is the other really great thing about London – you can count on it being cosmopolitan.
If you plan to visit Mes Amis, make sure you call to reserve a table. It’s really tiny.
