Great sushi places are few and far in-between in Lebanon, so when a new one pops up it’s always a great chance to engage in this 21st century rite of passage.On the outskirts of historic Byblos lies a new restaurant that caters specifically to that. It’s a straight-up no-frills kind of restaurant serving the best Japanese cuisine in Northern Lebanon.
The decor is that of a food-conscious arena but with a modern flair. It is very well-lit and the focal point of the restaurant is the sushi station. Kept simple yet lively, the place boasts an amazing live-plant framed wall that is both a conversational piece and elaborate addition to the experience at Mon Maki A Moi.
The food is what one expects from an extensive sushi. All the traditional fixtures from Unagi to Ikura are there, including many variations to Maki and Sushi dishes. The whole menu, from food to fine wine, is up to par and will leave you with a happy stomach.
In its current location it stands out with its unapologetic modernity and simple, yet efficient design. It is a must-visit for every person visiting lebanon because it captures the traditional lebanese aura in its location and speaks of its future in its interiors.
