Eats in Cebu: Beqaa

The Abaca Group’s latest outlet takes Cebuano taste buds on a journey to the Middle East, gaining a following of locals who can’t seem to resist the exotic flavors.

Beqaa’s Charcoal Fired Kebab

Hardwood floors, dim lighting and wrought iron features keep the dining room feeling intimate and cozy, while the open kitchen allows guests a peek into the creation of the charcoal-grilled meat and handmade Phoenician breads. The vegetarian and non-vegetarian mezze is a great way to start off the meal. Definitely order the tabbouleh—made of bulgur, tomatoes, cucumbers, parsley, mint, onions and garlic, the salad is one savory bite after another and is so light you don’t even realize how much you’ve already had.


Beqaa’s Lamb Chops

Of course, those who are looking for a more filling entrée will enjoy the kebabs from the main course menus, which are available in beef, lamb or fish. Seasoned with a combination of spices and grilled, the meats are best enjoyed with the selection of babah ghanoush, hummus and za’atar flatbread.
