Only a stone’s throw away from Raynes Park station lies the Mora Meza Bar and Restaurant serving up authentic Levantine Cuisine. A hidden gem of South West London this cosy restaurant has a delicious menu filled with stunning dishes, perfect to share and enjoy with friends and family.
Their food is straight forward but bursts with flavour! At Mora Meza they use authentic and fresh ingredients to give their dishes an edge on taste unlike anything else you will find locally. I love that all the items are made in the restaurant and that they have such dedication and pride in what they create and serve to their customers.
Their menu is filled with a huge selection of hot and cold meza along with wraps and sharing platters.
My favourite of the hot meza was the Mashawi – chicken and lamb skewers which had been marinated in a delicious sauce. This was definitely fought over at the table!
The mini Musakhan wraps were a treat – so fresh and filled with flavour. I loved the yoghurt to dip them in too – I could have eaten a lot more of these happily!
To try and get something green on the table we chose the Fatayer which were little pastries filled with spinach. The flavour was outstanding and tasted so healthy and fresh.
To drink we enjoyed the Domaine Ward Les Terroirs wine from the Bekka Valley in the Lebanon. It was a smooth red wine with a strong fruity flavour and we could definitely taste a hint of fresh black cherries. It complimented the food and bought a richness to the dinner.
No visit here would be complete without trying the most famous staples of Meza cuisine; Falafel and hummus! Their classic hummus was incredible. Displayed so beautifully, it was smooth, rich and had an aromatic and slightly smoky flavour which was so moreish.
The last thing we got to try and what was the most talked about at the table for it’s aromatic and totally delicious flavours, unlike anything I’ve tried before, was the the Zait W’Zater. It is a simple bread, oil and herb dip but after dipping the bread into the oil you dip it into the pot of dried oregano and sesame seeds. The flavours were incredible. The subtle taste of oil with the rich oregano was a treat and one I would definitely recommend.
Mora Meza is a stunning and cosy restaurant with the friendliest team who will help you find the right dishes to explore new flavours.
