Nuba Vancouver Kitsilano is like a vacation away from home. As you pull the doors open you are transported to a balmy locale – Morocco? The restaurant is divided into different dining areas: bar area, first floor common dining area, second floor booth seats and a table to gaze down to the sunlit private party courtyard-room area. If and when they fix the second floor open roof area in the back, you’ll be able to enjoy some roof-top sun rays also.
Each Nuba Vancouver location has a menu with slight variations, but their culinary flare around re-interpretations of traditional and modern Lebanese dishes. Since my last visits and during our Christmas party, I was excited to order something different from their Sharing Menu.
Najib’s Special 7.50: Crispy cauliflower tossed with lemon and sea salt is one of my favorites! I love it so much that I sometimes replicate it at home. Served with tahini. [VE+GF]
Hummus 6.50: Rich flavorful puree of organic chickpeas blended with garlic, lemon and tahini [VE+GF]
Lamb Hushwie 9: Sautéed minced lamb with onions, pine nuts and spices. The lamb is flavorful but not too strong. It is perfect for layering ontop of pita bread over hummus, avocado and pickled cabbage. [GF]
Beef Bavette 20: We needed some tender meat to balance out our meal. Local grass-fed beef were deeply marinated and paired with a feta cream potato terrine and beetroot riata.
