Popular and exotic treats
Enchanted with its magical interior design, tantalization grows within guests in anticipation for the home-made treats on Ksara's menu: spicy Tabbouleh (national Lebanese salad consisting of parsley leaves, tomatoes and bulgur, seasoned with lemon juice and olive oil), hummus, falafel, marinated skewers, pita bread and fine baklava (flaky pastry filled with nuts and sweetened with sugar-honey) represent merely a short selection of the alluring creations the Lebanese chefs use to enthuse diners, evening after evening.
Plus factor: Wine list
But it's not the food alone that makes dining at Ksara a rewarding experience. The restaurant also scores points with its authentic drink list. Something few people know: Lebanon is among the oldest wine cultivation regions on Earth. At Chateau Ksara on the western side of the Beqaa Valley, one of Lebanon's best-known wines is produced – also available at Ksara in Munich, naturally. Our tip: Ksara Rosé Sunset, a dry, fresh and particularly aromatic wine that pairs superbly with light appetizers and poultry dishes.
By the way, in addition to the restaurant, Ksara also has a catering service for supplying social gatherings and events with superior fare and exquisite wines. They are also happy to attend to special requests.
