t2 sampled a few dishes from the menu.
“Fusing Arabic flavours with the textures of Mediterranean cuisine, Lebanese food is an experience in itself. Moreover, introducing its vegetarian counterparts has been an interesting challenge. This is a great opportunity for the city to try some real good Lebanese delicacies along with the festive vibes. We have planned Sufi nights and much more, giving Marhaba the real essence,” said Virun Mimani and Aditya Mehta, owners of M Bar Kitchen.
“The idea was to try things differently, so we came up with the vision of a food festival that was never done at M Bar before. We have tried to keep the essence of the traditional Lebanese dishes while, also ensuring they are compatible with the local palate. It was also a challenge to find authentic Lebanese ingredients and I had to substitute it with something local,” said chef Sumiet Raghuvanshi.
