King Ahiram

A sign on the footpath of Vulture Street broadcasts that King Ahiram lays claim to Brisbane’s best falafel – and, once you’ve tasted the crispy bites that sit piled high behind the eatery’s counter each day, you will probably agree. West End’s long-standing family-owned diner may look modest from the outside, but wander in and you’ll be instantly besotted with the delicious Lebanese offerings on display. Slow-cooked eggplants, platefuls of mujadarra, lemony rice encased in cabbage and vine leaves, flaky cheese-filled pastries, baked spinach parcels and lashings of baba ghanouj are served en masse – but you can sample the best of everything with one of King Ahiram’s mixed deluxe platters. Enjoy your spread with your favourite wine in the casual space, which is festooned with pictures of the home country, and follow your feast with a selection of traditional sweets.
