I have never been to Emma’s on Liberty, ‘The Mother’ and his friends have dined here frequently and really enjoyed it. Emma’s on Liberty can be found in the quiet streets of Enmore, a little restaurant with a big long communal table in the middle of the restaurant with a few smaller tables surrounding it.
I haven’t been so left all the order to A1 and he certainly did order well. Emma’s on Liberty serves some of the best Lebanese food, I have no expertise on Lebanese food, nor have I eaten a lot of it but was pleasantly surprised with how flavoursome and delicious everything was.
Upon arriving, we were served with some thin Lebanese bread to dip in olive oil and zatar, a Middle Eastern spice mixture. It was so hard to not fill up on just bread, olive oil and zatar!
We started with the hommous ($12) – freshly cooked chickpeas crushed with tahini, garlic and lemon. It was deliciously creamy with a hint of tang which I loved.
The traditional hommous ($16) – hommous topped with lamb, pinenuts, tomato and parsley were good but the ‘normal’ hommous was infinitely better, the creaminess, the tang, and besides, this one had lamb which I am not a huge fan off.
Fried potato coriander ($12) – hand cut potato cubes with garlic paste and fresh coriander. The other diners certainly enjoyed this but the garlic was over powering.
The ladies finger ($16) – four fill pastry rolls filled with lamb, pine nuts and pomegranate molasses was surprisingly ok. It didn’t have too much of that lamb flavour and after taste, but one was definitely more than enough for me.
