Issa House | Restaurants in 15 Arrondissement, Paris

For who ? Those that want to uncover or rediscover the genuine flavors of Lebanese delicacies.
Cult dish? Makloubé – rooster thigh simply deboned, marinated, crispy pores and skin as desired, served on rice flavored with eggplant

Planted in a avenue of the fifteenth, this restaurant doesn’t show cedar on its signal, not like so many different Lebanese spots in Paris. The essential factor for Hassan Issa, the proprietor, is elsewhere: a local of the nation, he concocts alone and with ardour, in his open kitchen, all the great dishes on the menu with the generosity particular to Lebanese delicacies.

On weekdays at lunchtime, its shawarmas (rooster, lamb or beef) make up a scrumptious (and substantial) lunch menu (€15-16). And to encourage Parisians to get away from bed on Sunday mornings, Issa prepares for €20-22 (€14 for youngsters) a brunch as full as it’s unique. Decide for your self: an assortment of marvelous mezes (hummus, tabbouleh, cheese and meat turnovers…), a makloubé – rooster thigh simply deboned, marinated, crispy pores and skin to perfection, served on rice flavored with eggplant. Or these two massive eggs (natural) baked on French toast, with zucchini and candied onions flavored with sumac (a barely lemony spice).

Epilogue? A triad of sweets: saffron sfouf, cream katayef subtly dosed with orange blossom and melting baklawa. All washed down with a recent lemonade, a fragile tea and a milky cinnamon sahlab.
