Authentic Lebanese Restaurant

Authentic Lebanese Restaurant


These days, it’s hard to find an authentic restaurant that serves classic comfort foods because of the big wave of culinary fusion which usually mixes 2 or more entirely different components into a traditional dish or making a new cuisine after mixing or using various elements from two or more classic dishes. In Australia, fusion cuisine had long flourished from immigrants who brought their cuisines and developed a new food culture when they moved to the country and acclimated with the various cultures present in their areas. On the other hand, authentic restaurants that serve classic cuisines have also gained favour in the culinary scene for their homemade food and authentic experience.

Since more and more restaurants tend to focus on fusion cuisines, authentic restaurants in their local communities are now a gem. In an area like Perth Metropolitan where more and more restaurants pop up every day, one of the authentic restaurants that you can’t miss is Elie’s Tent, one of the best authentic Lebanese in Perth. At Elie’s Tent, you can get the full Lebanese experience from hospitality and culture to cuisine and entertainment. Not only do we serve their fellow Lebanese people, but we also cater to different nationalities in all age groups who want an authentic experience of Lebanese culture through food and entertainment.
