Baba Ghanouj is a restaurant that is a bit tricky to pronounce but don’t be discouraged because this place dishes out some of the best lebanese food Long Beach has to offer. Opened in 2009, Baba Ghanouj is the pride and joy of owner and chef, George Mitri. He was born and raised in Lebanon and upon arrival in the United States he wanted to share his love for his native food to the people of Long Beach.
Upon arrival I noticed the very Lebanese vibe and decor to the restaurant which was very awesome. We sat down at our table and was greeted by a great server. I ordered the Chicken Shwarma and awaited in anticipation. When the food came out it looked and tasted wonderful. The chicken was cooked to perfection and was seasoned perfectly. I hope many people can come visit Baba Ghanouj and try the delicious Lebanese food it has to offer. Whether it be a first date or romantic anniversary if you would like to get out of your comfort zone and try something new, Baba Ghanouj is the place to be. Fine Lebanese cuisine and a great atmosphere is what Baba Ghanouj is all about.
