Welcome at Kebia restaurant which, as the name suggests, specializes in Kabbeh† This one Levantine specialty is originally made from meat and bulgur. It comes in the shape of an elongated ball, similar to a rugby ball, and is used in most Lebanese Restaurants†
But if the Kabbeh is a specialty so widespread in the capital’s good Levantine addresses, why the Restaurant Kebic is it unique? It’s simple, this place is all about this meze which he sees in an original way. in ‘s house Kebic, so don’t expect to enjoy the traditional Kebbeh. Ideally located close to the Place des Vosges† Kebic instead let us taste the Kabbeh in all its forms through recipes that are all equally different and delicious, each time celebrating the meeting between the West and the Levant.
“With Kébi, we want as many people as possible to (re)discover a traditional breakfast cereal from the Levant countries and come up with all possible combinations to make it a modern and universally trendy dish”† Therefore Marc Naaman describes this concept that he envisioned and which is likely to seduce the taste buds of many gourmets in need of novelties.
On the menu? Plant-based recipes, such as butternut kebibut also different types of meat including the tasty duck kebi with foie gras, dates and nuts, onions and sage. We also like the kebis with fish and shellfish, with the raw tuna, ginger and peasand on the other hand the excellent calamari kebi accompanied by curry, peppers, aubergines and pistachios. A pure delight that takes us straight to the Mediterranean! In total, no less than 8 kebis are shared or not, and served in very beautiful signed plates Ottolenghi †

Fragrant and gourmet, a dish to enjoy without measure!
For carnivores, opt for the generous plate of beef tartare style kebi, served with homemade fries and salad. Again, originality is required and the reinterpretation is perfectly mastered and really successful! Another unusual creation? the chicken kebab † a club sandwich whose bread is replaced by kebbeh.
And because Kebic pushes the concept to its limits, the kebbeh is also to be enjoyed in a sweet version with regressive notes of banana, cinnamon, dark chocolate and toasted hazelnuts. Otherwise, choose the succulent bulgur with milk with its pears and saffron. A real treat to finish this end of the meal in style!
To accompany it all, Kebic relies on a rich drinks menu, made up of French and foreign wines. We especially recommend the white wine from the Baal Bekaa estate from Lebanon. For lovers of scientific drinks, no less 7 cocktails are offered, including the very floral “ Arrack rose (arakan ice alcohol and rose syrup), but also the “ beetroot mojito » (rum, lemon and beetroot juice, mint) or the « orange blossom old fashioned (rye, honey and orange), without forgetting mocktailsas the ” Basil Honey Lemonade (basil, lemon juice, honey and plain water).
