Cebu is home to many restaurants offering selection of cuisines from around the world. If you‘re into American, Asian, European or Middle Eastern food, Cebu surely has a restaurant that will satisfy your cravings.
The Abacca Group is one of the restaurant groups that introduced some of the best cuisines from around the world. They own the best restaurants in Cebu offering hand crafted food, excellent service and superb dining experience. The Abacca Group has restaurants serving Vietnamese, Italian, Mexican, American, Middle Eastern and other cuisines infused in their menu.
Beqaa has become one of my favorite restaurants in Cebu because of its savory dishes. Their menu offers Lebanese and Indian dishes which are also common in Middle Eastern cuisines. The restaurant boasts a modern interiors with hardwood floors, wrought iron features and dim lights that gives a romantic vibe to diners.
I’ve been to Beqaa twice before and I was really excited when my friends and I got invited to taste their food.
Pomegranate Mojito. A twist to the classic Mojito of Maya (also owned by The Abacca Group) which my friends and I really love. The pomegranate puree gives the drink a refreshing flavor with a right amount of alcohol in it.
Arayes Lahme. flatbread filled with meat and cheese. If you love quesadilla, you’ll love this one too.
Arnabeet Mekleh. Deep fried cauliflower drizzled with tahini sauce, spices and chilli. I love how the tahini sauce adds creaminess to the crispy cauliflowers. Tahini is made with sesame and it’s a very popular ingredient to Lebanese cuisine.
Cucumber Raita. Made with freshly chopped cucumber, labneh (Greek yoghurt), mint and cumin all mixed together and served as a dip.
Kafta. Minced lamb and beef mixed with spices, onion and parsley then grilled to perfection. The dish also comes with a dip and fries on the side. The meat is moist and savory and it’s perfect to eat with rice or pita bread.
Chicken Tikka Masala. Roasted chicken chunks served in mildly spicy tomato based curry with yoghurt.
Beqaa is located at 2F Design Center of Cebu, AS Fortuna Street, Banilad, Cebu City. You may call (032) 328 5539 for inquiries and reservations.
