The restaurant scene in Leicester is superb and offers residents and visitors alike an excellent choice of worldwide cuisines. Middle-Eastern cuisine is just one of the many culinary offerings available in the city and Middle-Eastern restaurants provide a relaxed, fun and unique dining experience where delicious and flavourful food is always accompanied by conversation and laughter.
Middle-Eastern cuisine offers a diverse range of dishes that predominantly feature ingredients such as olives and olive oil, chickpeas, parsley, pita bread and wheat. Due to the region’s location, it acted as a crossroads for a variety of different cultures and therefore was exposed to many different recipes and cooking techniques. You can expect to find dishes such as hummus, tabbouleh, kofta and keftedes on a Middle-Eastern menu.
Restaurants that serve Middle-Eastern food are frequently decorated in an authentic manner and are consistently filled with the sounds of conversation and laughter. Belly-dancers are also a frequent form of entertainment which add to the lively and buzzy atmosphere often found in these restaurants.
