MELBOURNE | Bekka has opened its doors in Moonee Ponds and brings to the area a beautifully crafted Lebanese menu that pays homage to Lebanon’s Beqaa Valley. We were delighted to dine at Bekka – not only was the food delicious, the owners Richard and Suzy Pavlov (who invited us) welcomed us like old friends.

You might know Richard and Suzy from their previous food spot, Brunswick Foodstore Café. Having both travelled widely, the inspiration for Bekka has come from their experiences abroad and their love of true and authentic family recipes. Both are second generation Australians with Lebanese heritage so the connection with the food at Bekka and their own family is real. From the moment you walk through the doors of the restaurant, the homely feel and the traditional Lebanese recipes really make this place special.

The atmosphere is cozy and homely, making Bekka a wonderful space to share a feast with your loved ones. The space is beautifully designed with a modern and sophisticated interior. There is a Lebanese palette in the dining room, with artfully displayed produce, leafy greens and earthy tones throughout. There’s a buzz in the dining hall, with patrons meeting their friends and family in this relaxed and comfortable restaurant.

The mezze menu brings together exotic spices and flavours which transport you to the bazaars of the Middle East. The dishes are unfussy, generous and made with quality ingredients. To start we were greeted with complimentary olives, pita bread and pickled vegetables. The Meshweh (the grill) is the perfect place to start on the menu. We sampled the Chicken Tawook and the Prawn Skewers, both juicy and tender. The Battata Harra is a must try, a deliciously creamy fried potato dish is, with garlic, coriander and chilli.

For the Mezza we shared the Falafel, Meat Cigars made filo pastry filled spiced minced lamb and the Kibbeh which were meat and burghul shells filled with minced spiced lamb and pine nuts, served with labne. For dessert, the Baklava with vanilla bean ice cream was a wonderful way to end the night.

The drinks list has a wonderful selection of Lebanese wines from the Beqaa valley, which has the oldest wineries in Lebanon. The wine list also has great local wines.

A great space, warm service, fantastic food and delicious drinks all combine wonderfully at Bekka. We can’t wait to head back for our next Lebanese feast.
