With a new restaurant opened up on Harborne high-street, and also located in Moseley Birmingham’s City Centre, my mum and I decided to treat ourselves after my hectic term of exams!
Cosy, elegant decoration, buzzing atmosphere and delicious treats on show, we spent a few hours of indulgence in this high quality Syrian restaurant, menu here!
Having visited three times within the week I have lots to recommend! Whether the sweet, chewy, nibble sized backava assortment (above) or the more substantial lemon chicken or falafel wrap below, there is a large array of Syrian dishes to try.
I highly recommend the Tahini Kofta, which is a sort of meat pie, topped with sour cream and homemade, warm pita type bread (delicious!) and presented with their unique Damascena bread, which adds a slight kick to the dish.
The drinks don’t disappoint either, whether you want to indulge in a large, sweet, chocolate bar milkshake, or try a more unique rose water and tamarind juice concoction (very acquired taste!) there is something for the adventurous and the not so much!
I hope this complimentary review compels you to visit a Damascena near you, and makes up for my absence from posting!
