AboutByblos Grill

Joe& Julian Hassarati

Welcome Byblos Lebanese Street food. Our Way.

We are so honoured and proud to bring Lebanese Street Food to the residents of Hornsby shire and beyond. It has been a vision of ours to share the simple, nutritious, mouth watering flavours of traditional Lebanese food.
We have chosen Street Food as a concept to allow people from many cultures to experience our food, we will never compete with a Lebanese Mother, Aunty, Cousin or relative still living in Lebanon. Our menu is simple and our main focus is on the Mashewe (grill on coals) & the sorj.(traditional Lebanese mountain bread.)

It is not our vision to be all things to all people, we will offer a weekly special dish that can only be normally eaten in a Lebanese home. This is one of the most exciting parts of not having a massive and extensive menu found in most Lebanese restaurants, we want non Lebanese to experiment and enjoy dishes that would never get to experience (unless they have a Lebanese neighbour)

Since the end of the second world war & the initial immigration of families to Thornleigh, Westleigh, Normanhurst & Pennant Hills these areas been the roots of first, second and now third generation Lebanese from Bann, north Lebanon.

We are a part of a very rich integration of migrants who have found so much joy & a quality of life here in this wonderful part of Sydney. As there are still so many people in our community who made that initial journey to a very foreign country leaving behind all that was familiar, the one thing that can never leave the heart of Lebanese is the essence of our culture and the importance of family with the pivotal role that food plays.

The Lebanese name for yoghurt is Labne it is made continuously from the one culture carried from each day to the next. When Lebanese migrants would leave their villages one of the most important things they would do was to take a clean meslin cloth dip it into their Mothers Labne for the last time then neatly fold it like precious cargo to be soaked in a foreign shore in a strange new world with a piece of home in their heart. It would be hard to calculate in all the corners of the world how many Labne still exist from the small villages in Lebanon decades ago.
