About Abla's

Pioneer of Lebanese cuisine Regarded as ‘the queen of Lebanese cooking’, Abla Amad is the owner and chef at the Melbourne institution Abla’s. Opened in 1979, after family and friends urged her to, this humble little eatery is a reliable achiever that serves a special brand of traditional, homemade Lebanese food. In Alba’s eye, Lebanese is a cuisine that can only be made from one place - the heart, and her love for cooking and Lebanese fare shines through in each dish. Serving homestyle dishes like cabbage rolls and baklava, smoky eggplant and tabbouleh, in casual surrounds, this is one restaurant that will never go out of fashion. Best dish: smoked eggplant blended with tahini, garlic and lemon juice
