Al Amir

Map & Directions 5217 Laurel Canyon Blvd.
Los Angeles, CA 91607


LA Weekly's Description

If you're familiar with Lebanese cooking, you'll probably be familiar with much of what's served at Al Amir. In fact, the chef is a close relative of the family that runs Sunnin in Westwood, so it's no surprise that the two menus share more than a passing resemblance. The mezze here, essentially Middle Eastern tapas, are worth the visit alone: ultra-creamy baba ghanoush zapped with an intense smokey flavor; the pungent cheese and olive oil mixture known as shanklish ; or kibbeh nayeh, a rich beef tartare mixed with cracked bulgur, diced onions and mint.

    This place is a must go place to eat some real Lebanese food.

    All the meats are marinated, bursting with flavor.

    My friend had one of the specials, mugrebiah and it was great! It's a cous-cous dish w/chicken & onion sauce on the side.

    Try the Baklava fingers for dessert.
