Inspired by the Beirut of the 1940s—when it was considered the "Paris of the Middle East"- Nuba offers some of the best ethnic eats around. Their crispy cauliflower tossed with lemon and sea salt made Vancouver Magazine's list of "101 Things to Eat Before you Die", and the vegetarian dishes are particularly noteworthy. Try a trio of Mediterranean dips with fresh pita—tzatziki, hummus, and eggplant dip—before moving on to heartier fare like the lamb kafta or the chicken tawook: local chicken marinated in Middle Eastern Spices. The Turkish coffee tiramisu is a standout choice for dessert. Nuba is also open for breakfast.
