Bargain Lunching at Mezze Palace

Last week Phil and I tried to get to Three Brothers for National Burger Day. Alas we were foolish and it was full to the rafters. We quickly dug deep into our think tanks and Phil suggested Mezze Palace on Small Street, a Lebanese restaurant that offers a £4.99 two course set lunch deal. Hurrying along as there were meeting constraints we reached the venue in record time and headed down to the restaurant. A small underground restaurant, it's a bit like dining in a wine vault, you can get a mezze starter plate and a choice of chicken, lamb or vegetarian kebab and rice for main. However, outside the deal, there are plenty of mezze and main options if you want to do a bit of mix and match to get exactly what you want to eat. Phil and I swiftly ordered two of the set menu and some drinks.

For £4.99 the portions are pretty generous. A flat bread each accompanies the starter platter which also consists of a falafel, baba ganoush, keema crisp roll, zingy salad, some extremely smooth and delicious hummus and a warm dolmades which I prefer to cold ones. The starter plate is all delicious and works well together so you can dip everything and enjoy mixing it up, if you so wish that is. 

The main is two small grilled chicken shish kebabs, which you can request to have spicy if you like, a side of keema rice and some tangy yoghurt dressing. The chicken is so juicy and flavoursome, the spicy is definitely hotter than you'd expect but for spice heads it's great, definitely a favourite of mine.

You can't really get many genuine bargains these days but this is a complete steal and definitely one of my preferred sitting down lunch locations. Having said that even in the evening the food is pretty reasonably priced and it's got a nice atmosphere to have a dinner with friends. To find out more about Mezze Palace, visit their website here.
