Baba Ganoush can be described as the place in Malta to eat falafel. Located in Rabat, close to the church, Baba Ganoush is a place to go for vegetarians who love Lebanese and Mediterranean food. Whether visiting during the day or the night, a walk around the streets of Rabat (and Mdina) should be part of the experience. From outside, the restaurant is not so conspicuous and blends with the overall environment of this busy street. The restaurant is actually set inside an old Rabat townhouse and the ambience inside is quaint.
Baba Ganoush serves and an assortment of traditional Syrian and Lebanese food, so typically Mediterranean in flavours and tastes. Baba Ganoush has a vast assortment of Lebanese and Syrian vegetarian dishes, all adequately V signed on the menu. One should state that the choice of vegetarian dishes outnumbers the number of other dishes. This means that there is abundant choice of dishes to choose from, be it cold or warm mezes. Unfortunately there are no vegetarian dishes in the main course section. Having said that, a mix of four of five mezes like hummus, falafel, tabouleh, lebaneh and battata harra along with some bread, is all you need for a tasty meal.
Falafel is a typical Lebanese dish, and I strongly recommend the falafel at Baba Ganoush as a must dish to have. A mix of cold and warm mezes can be a good choice. The portions are adequate, and be careful not to over order. Around two plates per person should probably be enough along with some bread.
There is ample choice on the menu for any vegetarian to choose from. The cold mezes has a choice of 9 plates all between €4 and €5 each. In the warm mezes there is a choice of 6 plates priced between €3 and €5 each. This means that a meals of 4 mezes and bread will cost you around €20 (excluding drinks).
