Not going to lie this was only my second time or so trying Lebanese food, but I really really liked it! I am so into meals where you get lots of little different things to try. Because one flavour just gets so boringgggg. That is something I really dislike about a lot of “western” foods, in that we just have one big dish for dinner with one thing on it. So lame! I am all about tasting lots of different flavours in one meal. So much more satisfying.
Alright so getting down to it, this restaurant is called Nuba! Their main locations are in Gastown and Kitsilano (Vancouver, Canada) and I definitely prefer the Kits location. It had a beautiful open front where we sat in the fresh air. So nice considering we only have this gorgeous weather for a few months per year here in Vancity!
We ordered the “La Feast” for two which is a vegetarian sampler that includes lots of different little appies. Perfect for a Lebanese noob like myself :P. When the first course came (baba-ganoush and fresh hummus) I ate SO MUCH OF IT because I thought that the second course wouldn’t be much food. Sweet baby jesus was I mistaken. Like…. WARN A SISTA, NUBA! You should tell really frigging tell people to not be massive pigs on the first course because the second course is HUGE. There were all sorts of dips, olives, cheeses, eggplant stew, lentils, and a bunch of other stuff that I honestly wasn’t quite sure what it was but it was still so bomb.
Okay another thing that is great about Nuba? They have these unreal fresh squeezed juices that you can get custom made. I got pear, orange, ginger, and lemon. It was bomb. You should make it or go order it at Nuba. See that tall glass of juice in the photo above? Crushed it.
Anywho, I am stokeddd to go to Nuba again and try ordering some more different things off the menu. If it is your first time going, I would defs recommend you get the “La Feast”, because its a great way to try a bunch of different things when you really have no idea what the hell to order haha.
For my Vancouver friends, have you been to Nuba before? Did you like it? Yay? Nay? Tell me in the comments below!! <3
